Kaizer Chiefs acquire the servies of former SuperSport United Defender Luke Fleurs. A statement released by the Club reads as follows.
Kaizer Chiefs have fortified their defensive unit with the signing of Under-23 international, Luke Fleurs, on a two-year contract, with an option for a further season.
The classy defender has been training with Amakhosi since leaving SuperSport United, and Chiefs were able to sign him outside the transfer window, as he was unattached.
“We are very excited and happy to have Luke join us. The young man has great technical abilities and I think he will fit really well into how we want to approach the game and the kind of football we would like to play going forward,” Sporting Director, Kaizer Motaung Jr. tells www.kaizerchiefs.com of the decision to acquire his services, adding, “Of course, being a youth international and having experienced the Olympics, as well as having many PSL games under his belt, we believe his attributes will benefit the team.”
Now that he has been formally integrated into the squad, a visibly delighted Fleurs says he is ready to play his part in restoring the glory days to the Amakhosi Faithful.
“I feel so pleased to sign because I always wanted to be part of the Glamour Boys,” he says with a broad smile, “There is a great bond here; it has that family feel. I just wanted to get started on the job of winning silverware. This is the biggest Club and I want to help us win things.”
“We have been training well and I am used to the set up,” he continues, “Results haven’t been going our way lately but we will turn it around through hard work, because there is great talent here and we will get it right.”
Having already spent a bit of time on the Village training pitch, the Club will be happy to have a quality operator such as 23-year-old Fleurs available for selection and Motaung anticipates that his promising development will see him involved before too long.
“We are looking to get everyone on board as soon as possible,” he says, “and we know that Luke is fit and raring to go, so we will leave it up to the technical staff to make that call, but we are hoping to see him playing for us soon.”
Welcome to the Kaizer Chiefs Family, Luke. We wish you a long and successful career with the Mighty Amakhosi!
