On Tuesday night, the temperature in South Africa cooled a couple degrees as Kaizer Chiefs declared a mass exodus of players whose services are no longer required by the club. After months of silence and inactivity, Naturena has sprung to life and some serious wheeling and dealing is on the cards. Now it's the job of the supporters to sit back and decide whether the moves are wise or not. We begin with the story of Keagan Ritchie and Sibusiso Khumalo.
Along with Amakhosi's big announcement, there has been talks of a big-name swap involving Keegan Ritchie and SuperSport United left back Sibusiso Khumalo. Is this a wise move in the eyes of supporters?
"Great deal. Chiefs will benefit more than SSU." – King Leo 10
The swap seems to be widely welcomed by most Chiefs fans, but there are those who wonder whether this move will see Khumalo make the left back jersey his own, or if he will be a human duster to keep the bench free of dirt.
"I will take nothing from this guy, he is good, but he ain't gonna make it at Chiefs." – nengo 06
"Welcome to Naturena. Wear that jersey with pride. Don't relax and work hard. We don't want to see you warming the bench. Give Masilela competition. Be the best." – Da Brisco Nation
What do you think of this swap deal? Who will benefit more, SSU or Chiefs? Will Khumalo have a place in Amakhosi's starting line-up?
