Chiefs Derby Update As Katsande Returns

Steve Komphela Has Good News At Kaizer Chiefs

By Soccer Laduma - Mar 01, 2018 09:41 AM

Steve Komphela has welcomed back Willard Katsande to Kaizer Chiefs after the midfielder returned to South Africa following the passing of his mother.

The Zimbabwean midfielder missed the 0-0 draw with Bloemfontein Celtic as he returned home for the funeral of his late mother, and there have been doubts about whether he will be available for selection as the Amakhosi do battle with their bitter rivals, Orlando Pirates. 

Though there is good news for Komphela, with the Glamour Boys’ coach saying that Katsande should be ok to face off against the Buccaneers.

Speaking to the media this week, he said, “Willard he is back now, he got back today (Wednesday). He had a session, obviously, there is recovery to factor in, but he should be ready for anything on Saturday.”

Meanwhile, with the likes of Dumisani Zuma and Teenage Hadebe returning to training this week, the Chiefs coach is delighted to have so many players up for selection.

He said, “In terms of availability, it’s rare that we go into this match with so many available players. Previously we have had serious problems where we would go into a match with more like eight serious injuries, but for now, we have a full compliment.”

Chiefs do have Kabelo Mahlasela struggling with a knee injury, although several players are now back in contention as Komphela plots the downfall of Milutin Sredojevic and his ranks on Saturday.

I cannot believed how that so many people are fooled by Moon/Castro combination. This combination is the reason we are so thin upfront. Castro should be paired with a mobile strike like Zuma.

@Thagalekgwara & @Steven-Brian : Meyiwa is very good in that midfield but in this Derby he may come as a sub but NO NO NO NO to Ntshangase! He's not yet there according to me . Steve must play the tried and tested like Molangoane, Shabba, Maluleke ,Ekstein, Parker with Castro upfront. Moon, Ntshangase, Meyiwa, Paez , Meyiwa may come as substitutes.
