Kaizer Chiefs head coach Arthur Zwane is unflustered by the injury status of the Burundian international Caleb Bimenyimana.
Caleb Bimenyimana made his return to the Amakhosi starting line-up after missing two league matches, including the Soweto Derby, due to a thigh muscle strain injury. Bimenyimana played 83 minutes on his return for a fourth placed Amakhosi and was eventually replaced by development graduate Wandile Duba. Zwane remains unflustered whether Bimenyimana will make it to the next game or not.
“If he’s injured, we will play the young man Wandi [Wandile Duba]. He’s got the potential to score goals, so we have no fear. As you could have seen when he went in there, he was fearless. However, football is a game of mistakes. He made mistakes here and there. But make no mistake, he’s a top-class player and he’s going places. I’m not worried,” Zwane told the media after the 2-0 victory against Golden Arrows at the Moses Mabhida stadium.
In addition, Zwane was satisfied with Bimenyamana’s overall performance against Golden Arrows. The 25-year-old is now the DStv Premierships top goal scorer with seven goals after netting the opener for the Glamour Boys on Saturday afternoon.
“Look I’m happy for him. That’s what strikers are supposed to do. The game today has evolved. You also have to get players that can break the lines. Players that can open spaces for others but are also very good in holding up the ball. As well as knowing when to turn and how to lay the ball to others to finish.
“I think he scored a great goal from great movement. That’s what we usually do anyway and we want to perfect it, we want to polish it and it can be better,” he ended.
Chiefs will host a struggling Sekhukhune United on Saturday evening at the FNB stadium.
