As the Kaizer Chiefs prepare for the second round, head coach Cavin Johnson says that defender Luke Fleurs is almost ready to play.
An update is that defender Luke Fleurs, who joined Kaizer Chiefs in October, is almost ready to make his debut, according to interim coach Cavin Johnson.
Fleurs, a former SuperSport United defender, joined the Chiefs during the season as a free agent, so Johnson reveals that he had to put in a lot of effort to get healthy again.
Johnson is reportedly putting a lot of effort into honing his Chiefs players during the Afcon break, and according to TimesLIVE, Fleurs is getting closer to playing competitive football and making his debut.
Fleurs has put a lot of effort into increasing his level of fitness, and the Chiefs supporters won’t have to wait long to see him play, according to the former assistant coach for Al Ahly, Johnson.
Even though the South African junior international is thought to be one of the best, coach Johnson’s Chiefs team will pit Fleurs against players like Given Msimango and Thatayaone Ditlhokwe.
“He is very close to action. You must remember he came to us three-quarters into the season as a free agent,” Chiefs coach Johnson reveals about Fleurs who is close to making his debut.
“He had to work hard to get a club and he’s got Kaizer Chiefs as his destination. We closed for a few weeks in December but he’s come back to training a lot fresher and that’s good to see.
“He is a different type of defender and he will give us a lot of options for how we want to play. We are hoping he brings that even more into the game and we can reap what we have bought.”
