One of the current Kaizer Chiefs FC junior team player Mfundo Vilalazi has revealed how he thinks about his future with Kaizer Chiefs FC senior team.
As a reminder, Vilalazi was spotted training with Chiefs senior team few weeks ago, and that left many fans questioning themselves about the future of Mfundo with the team. There was a media briefing in Carling All Stars camp yesterday. Vilalazi answered a question that was from one of media houses journalist who asked him about if he feels ready for the senior team or not.
Vilakazi’s reply was that he is ready to get a permanent senior team call up. He says his future is good because he is ready for the senior team.
Adding more on that, Kaizer Chiefs FC teenager player Mfundo Vilalazi has broken his silence for the first time since being spotted training with Chiefs senior team.
Speaking on a press conference that was hosted yesterday ahead of Carling All Stars and Stellenbosch FC’s game scheduled today, he said he was training with the senior team because the head coach Cavin Johsnon called him to train with the senior team. He says Johnson’s reason was for him to prepare for the Carling Black Label cup match, where by he was amongst players that were voted by football fans.
Apart from that, Mfundo Vilakazi said he will surely impress those who believed in him. To those who will watch him, he is expected to dance on the ball like he always does when enjoying his game in the ground.
The game will start today at 15 hours 00 min. The game will be played in Peter Mokaba Stadium, Jose Rivero will be the one coaching the players.
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.”
