Here is Why Kaizer Chiefs has failed to sign a foreign striker

With their most trusted striker Samir Nurkovic struggling to find the back of the net recently and individual striker Leonardo Castro out with a long-term injury, Kaizer Chiefs are thought to have attempted to sign a striker from outside of South Africa, but they ran into some issues that prevented them from making a signing on time.

Apart from any lingering issues, Amakhosi have not been scoring much of late, and when they do, the majority of the goals come from the midfielders. It appears that the unfamiliar share was the stumbling block that kept coming, and their efforts fizzled.

Amakhosi attempted to register their Nigerian goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi and Colombian attacker Leonardo Castro as South Africans, according to Soccer Laduma, because they currently qualify after more than five years of playing in the PSL.

Everything fizzled due to the fact that Home Affairs departments around the country have been operating sluggishly since the Covid incident, making it difficult for Chiefs to do the essential desk work in order to enlist both Akpeyi and Castro as South Africans.

"Both Castro and Akpeyi, according to statistics provided to Soccer Laduma, meet all requirements for a long-term residency grant (PRP), having played in the Premier Soccer League for a continuous period of five years or more and being eligible to be enrolled as residents. If Amakhosi had the possibility to submit a late application before the enrollment window closed on August 31, Baxter would have a chance to sign an unknown striker who is a free specialist "reports on distribution
