Kaizer Chiefs FC striker who has joined the club with a loan agreement Jasond Gonzalez, is among players who will leave Chiefs when the current season end, especially if he doesn’t perform statistically.
However, Kaizer Chiefs FC management is working hard to found his replacement, who is also an international player. The who Chiefs is monitoring, was on Chiefs rather, two years ago and we are told Chiefs management has renewed their interest on him. The player is Robert Polievka.
Why Chiefs didn’t sign Robert for the first time?
Remember we are the ones who broke the Robert Polievka story and how Kaizer Chiefs were interested in the player. We can assure you that the deal fell immediately Keagan Dolly was announced as our new signing.
Kaizer Chiefs felt they do not need an additional winger since they got Dolly and Kgaugelo Sekgota by that time.
With Stuart Baxter also having said that he prefers to work with what he has and doesn’t want new signings.
Robert Polievka for me would have brought a different dimension to the Kaizer Chiefs team in terms of his ball movements and off the ball movements a typical European Winger who thrives on skills his ability to read situations makes him great.
Had Kaizer Chiefs signed him that time, he would have thrived in the PSL. The season when Chiefs wanted him for the first time, this season he was already on 4 goals and 4 assists in 6 games how Chiefs fans wish the management can push his signature.
Now good news is that, Chiefs is really interested in getting him. According to our source that never let us down, Chiefs is really looking forward to sign him and replace Gonzalez.
In other news, Kaizer Chiefs FC longest serving goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune who was suspended for arriving to training while under the influence of alcohol, has made a comment for the first time after his suspension.
This is the first time Khune will play competitively since his suspension by his club in early December 2023.
The suspension which also saw him lose his captaincy followed allegations that the 36 year old arrived at training under the influence of alcohol.
Just before Christmas Carling had released an XI without Khune, only for him to return when they confirmed the “official” selection, which resulted in Chiefs releasing a statement that Khune was still suspended and ineligible for selection.
However, that statement has since been deleted and sources told iDiski Times that it was published by error, with the former Amakhosi captain reinstated in the line-up.
Khune himself believes the suspension was a “blessing in disguise” and reveals he has kept fit so that when the opportunity to return to the pitch came it would be easy for him to take it.
“I’m doing great, I’m doing well. I think everyone has seen that I have been keeping fit,” he replied to iDiski Times.
“I have been training very hard because as a 24-hour pro you can’t relax at any given time. You will never know where your destiny is.
“And when they opened the votes for the fans to start voting and I saw my name there I told myself that in whatever that I’m going through it’s a blessing in disguise.
“I just had to stay ready for anything that’s coming my way. And I’m happy that I’ve managed to carry that through over the years that I will have that never say die spirit and nothing will discourage me.
“I’m happy that I’ve been keeping fit and I’m happy to be here.”
