Kaizer Chiefs New Star Gives Assurance After Getting Zero Play Time Last Season

The Kaizer Chiefs have made a number of noteworthy additions this season, and one of the freshly signed players has pledged to perform to the best of his ability despite receiving no playing time in the previous season.

After six months without an official match, Siythemba Sithebe have ensured that they would not experience any fitness concerns. Sithebe will become an official Kaizer Chiefs player on July 1 after completing an initial contract with the Soweto giants and beginning the last six months of his term with AmaZulu.

The pre-contract infuriated AmaZulu's management, who demanded that he not be selected until the completion of the recently concluded season. His last racing game was on December 14, 2021, and he claims that his feet won't have rusted by the time the next season begins.

Comment by Sithebe

When I was injured for six months and unable to play for Mbombela United, I experienced a similar situation. AmaZulu signed for me and fared well after I returned, however. I have no injuries, no exhaustion, and nothing else, so I can only say that this scenario is better. My muscles don't hurt. So, until the start of the new season, I am clean. This is preferable to being injured outside. My form will thus return.

Prior to his dismissal, the midfielder played in 15 Premier League games, four Cafe Champions League games, and one MTN8 game. Citibe played in two DStv Compact Cup games for Amabuto in January despite not being selected for the 2022 league fixtures.

Despite his assurances that he will be in terrific shape for the beginning of the upcoming season, he acknowledges that his mental state has suffered as a result of the freeze.

Comment by Sithebe

Because I am accustomed to playing, I was very moved. In football, though, such occurrences do occur occasionally. I am aware of the reason, and my heart is pure, glad, and inspired for the other participants; I always wish them the best of luck.

Sithebe is not yet been formally confirmed as a Chiefs player, but the Soweto giants have announced the acquisitions of Zita Quinica and Ashley du Preez.
