ICYMI: Kaizer Chiefs top class striker has returned from his home country & is back in training?

For months and months now Kaizer Chiefs have unfortunately been going through a crisis in the striking position which is technically not a position where you can afford to have a crisis

The Glamour Boys have been faced with the reality of having both of their first choice strikers out injured in the form of Leonardo Castro & Samir Nurkovic

Then again while both players were fit for Kaizer Chiefs they were still very much struggling to score goals as both players looked out of place whenever they were on the pitch

For Samir Nurkovic the Serbian striker would at times drop deep unnecessarily to collect the ball only to hold on to it too long and losing it carelessly much to the frustration of his teammates

And as for Leonardo Castro the Colombian would act as a target man for Kaizer Chiefs at times as although he is quite tall and quite strong he doesn't necessarily possess the attributes of a target man leaving him vaunerable at times

And since then both players were injured simultaneously leaving Kaizer Chiefs in a very very awkward position and situation but then again that made them quite stronger without them in the team

Because since the injuries of both Leonardo Castro & Samir Nurkovic Kaizer Chiefs have picked up nine points out of a possible 12 losing one game out of four which was to Stellenbosch FC who have started the season quite impressively

Now Kaizer Chiefs can breath a huge sigh of relief as one of the strikers who have been injured in Leonardo Castro has returned to the country and has started training with the club after being out for a while

And considering that there won't be any domestic football up until next weekend this could be a good period for Leonardo Castro to work on his recovery and fitness for the club to hopefully get back on the pitch sooner rather than later
