Is Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana available or not? A lot of supporters are in disbelief, given the contrasting reports between Velile Mnyandu of SABC Sport and the Kaizer Chiefs website. Earlier in the week SABC Sport reported that the Burundian striker was injured with a thigh injury, and that he’ll be out for four weeks.
Today on the Kaizer Chiefs website, Arthur Zwane said he welcomes back Zitha Kwinika, because Siya Ngezana is not available, and that Khama BIlliat is ready to give the team more minutes. But no mention of their top goal scorer Caleb. Also that they have a clean bill of health, and that everyone is available.
“We have some players who have played a lot of games and we may look at resting some of them ahead of the weekend’s cup semi-final. We need all our soldiers available for that one,” Zwane reflecting on their loss and the response needed, as well as team news.
The absence of the lanky 24-year old forward will be a huge miss, if he indeed is out for the foreseeable future. His ability to hold up the ball and bring more technical players into the game, is a figure that Arthur Zwane has been searching for. Most importantly his goals have won them priceless points while the rebuild of Amakhosi develops further.
Kaizer Chiefs take on TS Galaxy at the FNB Stadium on Wednesday evening at 19:30, hoping to put their recent loss against Chippa United behind them.
