Former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder, Michael Nkambule has said newly signed Amakhosi striker, Caleb Bimenyimana must still prove himself worthy of a place in the team.
The 25-year-old goal-poacher underwent a three-week trial with the Amakhosi in July this year, before the club eventually signed him on a two-year deal, with a further one-year option.
Bimenyimana, who looked a potential match winner for Chiefs before the international break, has scored six goals in eight matches since his arrival at Amakhosi, before he suffered a thigh injury that may see him out of action for the rest of the year.
However, Nkambule is not yet convinced that the Burundian international is the man to rescue Amakhosi from their trophy drought.
“He must prove himself to be honest, he hasn’t done much so far, let’s be serious,” Nkambule told ThisIsFootball.Africa.
“Look, where he was starting to play better and making an impact. Then games started coming continuously and then he got injured, and now we are going to the World Cup, so it’s another long gap.
“I can’t say he’s good or not, I haven’t see him that much, but he needs to prove himself when the season resumes.”
