Chiefs’ Strikers In Top 5 For Goal Returns

Kaizer Chiefs' Strikers Have Scored The 4th Most Goals This Season

By Soccer Laduma - Jul 23, 2017 12:55 PM

Among the teams that finished in the 2016/17 Absa Premiership’s top five, Kaizer Chiefs’ strikers had the worst goal return.

Click through the images above to see how many goals the top five’s strikers scored.

The Glamour Boys registered seven strikers for the 2016/17 season and their cumulative tally for goal returns was just 10 goals throughout the league campaign.

However, three of those strikers, Emmanuel Letlotlo, Edward Manqele and Lewis Macha, failed to find the net over the course of the entire campaign, while Bernard Parker (five), Michelle Katsvairo (two), Gustavo Paez (two) and Ryan Moon (one) were the men that took responsibility for putting the finishing touches on Amakhosi’s attacking movements.

Their cumulative tally of 10 goals out of the team total of 39 was the worst return out of any team that finished in the top five of the Absa Premiership standings.

Meanwhile, the return of Bidvest Wits’ strike force painted a completely different picture, with all of their registered strikers boasting a return of two goals or more. Gabadinho Mhango (nine), Phakamani Mahlambi (six), Cuthbert Malajila (four), Eleazar Rodgers (three), Mogakolodi Ngele (three) and James Keene (two) all made up for 27 out of their club’s 47 goals scored last season.

Elsewhere, Cape Town City’s strike force returned with a tally of 14 of the final team's tally of 47 goals. SuperSport United’s four frontmen, on the other hand, were responsible for only 12 of the club’s 42 goals and, finally, Mamelodi Sundowns’ four strikers made up for 19 of the club’s league-topping 52 goals.

@setlaboswana But Castro has been goalless in almost 15 months.... I can safely say Paez is by far better than Cowstro.

@Xolisa{khosificated}, is two league goals in 5 (five) months a good return for Paez? I wouldn't be surprised to read a comment from you embracing fau for paying Bvuma R5000.00 (five thousand rand) monthly salary.

@Xolisa{khosificated}, comparing Paez to Castro is like comparing prof Komphela to Pitso. Nooooooo....the two players are incomparable, Castro had proved himself while Paez is still searching for his first silverware.

The last tym I saw Cowstro taking a shot was when Bongani Zungu was still a Dunusa player n injured.....but Zungu went on to recover n score in his debut on his overseas club jersey.
