For the last two seasons, Kaizer Chiefs have been banned from registering any players by the CAS (Court of Arbitration for Sports). The ban was lifted on June 30 and ever since then the Amakhosi machine has been working hard to get their targets to sign.
Chiefs have been planning to sign a few new players for a while now, plotting behind the scenes for the last two years in order to be ready for the day when the ban would be lifted.
The latest star name that Amakhosi have added to their books is last season's defender of the year nominee Njabulo Ncgobo, among other confirmed names such as Sibusiso Mabiliso. It seems to be the case, however, that Amakhosi are not finished chasing after their originally intended targets.
The names of Kgaogelo Sekgotla and Brandon Peterson pop up when one thinks of the initial names on the short list that the Soweto giants had originally intended to sign. The expectation was that the two would be snatched up on free transfers once their contracts with their respective clubs came to an end on June 30th.
It is quite evident, however, that Chiefs are still somewhat in persuit of many players in order to boost the squad in preparation for the upcoming pre-season and eventual 2021-22 campaign.
As Chiefs prepare for their historic CAF Champions League final against African giants Al Ahly, it is understood that the club is currently focused on the big day on July 17 at the Stade Mohammed V in Casablanca, Morroco.
