The binoculars are out, and Naturena is searching for a new star to brighten their sky. On Monday, the Siya Crew broke a story about the possibility of Kaizer Chiefs signing a 30-year-old Zimbabwean defender from Sparta Prague, Costa Nhamoinesu, and one of our supporters did not take kindly to this news…
"I'm disturbed by the article today in Soccer Laduma about a rumour linking the 30-year-old Zimbabwean to my beloved Kaizer Chiefs."
These were the words of prominent Amakhosi supporter Anthony Ndou Simutha.
"I have seen the guy play and, yes, I agree he is a good player, but Costa is 30 years old! I thought the boss himself (Kaizer Motaung) was on record not too long ago saying that one of our main downfalls has been an ageing squad?
"How many seasons will a 30-year-old give us? I hope this is just a rumour and ends as a rumour.
"Yes, we need new players, but not 30-year-olds."
Do you think Chiefs must look to proven quality, or promising youth?
