Kaizer Chiefs FC is a football team known for producing better and best players. All those players end up parting ways with Amakhosi and go abroad. Those players are such as Njabulo Blom, Hendrick Eckstein, George Lebese, William Twala and others.
We are told that a former Kaizer Chiefs FC player who left South Africa at the early age, has just arrived home and he is looking for a new club.
Journeyman William Twala is back in South Africa and looking for a new club after playing at Erbil SC in Iraq, at Madan Maharaj in India and Chittagong Abahani in Bangladesh over the last three years.
The former Orlando Pirates, Kaizer Chiefs, Chippa United and Maritzburg United winger spoke to iDiski Times writer Lethabo Kganyago, in edition 102 of the newspaper, about not being picky about clubs, saying he believes his style of play suits any team.
Twala also shares in the interview why he took a different route to secure his future financially before returning home to play for honours without any pressure.
The 33-year-old also added that he first wanted to get back in shape but is now ready to start a new South African adventure ahead of the 2023/24 season..
“Remember I’ve been out of the country for three years and I came while the season was in progress, so it was difficult for people to trust in me after being away for so long,” Twala told iDiski Times.
“So the best option I thought it would be to start with a team for pre-season hence I took time off to say ‘no, let me wait for pre-season, so I can be able to adjust’.
“But at the moment I don’t have options. Hopefully by the grace of God, this interview will open more doors than I have to go in and ask.”
Twala also admitted that he would be open to join a team in the Motsepe Foundation Championship, but his main intention is to play in the top flight again.
“I don’t know for sure but any other opportunities that come, if it’s NFD or PSL [DStv Prem] after all South Africans football is one,” he continued.
“If you start in the NFD there’s a chance that you might go up again. I’m quite open to any opportunity.
“At the moment, I think my style of play would suit any team.
Apart from that Kaizer Chiefs FC will meet Orlando Pirates FC in Nedbank cup semi finals tomorrow. Former Kaizer Chiefs FC midfielder Williard Katsande has shared his own view;
“It’s crazy that people think losing a game before the derby means Chiefs will win,” Katsande told The Sowetan.
“I think it has been coincidental. The reason Chiefs wake up in the Soweto derby is that those games are unpredictable and current form counts for nothing.
“There’s a lot at stake and the players know that they are not only playing for themselves but for millions of fans, so it can always go either way,” the former Chiefs number six concluded.
