Former Kaizer midfielder Michael Nkambule has advised his former club to sign new players in January, especially strikers, if they want to compete for the league title.
Amakhosi released nine players including three strikers, Leonardo Castro, Samir Nurkovic and Lazarous Kambole. Chiefs went out of their way to trim the squad, and give coach Arthur Zwane a fresh looking team.
Nkambule believes the biggest problem could be the absence of striker, Caleb Bimenyimana, who has missed the past few games and the club had no real back up option to him.
While applauding his former side for giving some minutes to young stars in the senior team, Nkambule insisted that the club must try to boost their squad after the World Cup.
“Chiefs had just released plenty of players at the start of the season, so they must get players if they want to compete going forward,” Nkambule told ThisIsFootball.Africa.
“They need players, more players, especially strikers because now look when Caleb Bimenyimana is injured, there is very little. It means they are back to the same concerns, they need new players to form a good squad with the current young players, but it’s good to see youngsters playing also.
“Chiefs have only Caleb in front, they must go to the market and sign players, so they can relieve the likes of Keagan Dolly and Ashley Du Preez and all other ones they rely on. The lack of strikers puts Dolly and Du Preez under pressure.”
The Glamour boys are fourth on the DStv Premiership table, tied in 21 points with third placed SuperSport United. They have won six games, drawn three and lost four in 13 games so far.
