Chiefs rivals look to benefit from Amakhosi's released contracted player

AmaZulu could get a former Kaizer Chiefs player who recently left Naturena after a season with a shocking decision. It won't be long before Sibusiso Mabiliso finds a new home in the PSL with AmaZulu coach Brendan Trutter wanting to work with him. Mabiliso left Chiefs after his contract was terminated by mutual consent last week. And this happened shortly after the arrival of Emilson Dove. It is unclear, at least at this stage, what prompted the two sides to part ways, but bosses signing Dove was the reason why Mabiliso left the club.

After all, Dove was deployed to support Chiefs' left flank while Mabiliso was available and was not given an equal chance. Now, Truter says every coach wants to work with a player of Mabiliso's caliber, adding that his services will increase the competitiveness of the Usuthu team.

Truter says that while AmaZulu currently have Mxolisi Kunene and Riaan Hanamub, having Mobiliso will raise the bar. He is a quality player and I think every coach needs a player like him. We have two good players on the left in Mxolisi Kunene and Riaan Hanamub.

So adding Mabiliso would raise the bar and increase competition between the three,” Truter said according to a source. "If you look at the trophy-winning teams like the Sundowns, for example, or the big teams in Europe, they have 14 regular players and they just make changes here and there.

If you have a good group of players, it becomes easy to replace. them when someone is hurt. "Kunene and Hanamub can play defense when you have four players at the back and they can go up and down the left wing if you play 3-4-3.

''We have great left-handed players but we can still add more. Truter added, if [Mabiliso's signature] is possible, it will. If Mabiliso ends up at AmaZulu, he will be the third former Chiefs player to do so this transfer window, after George Maluleka and Friendly Mphahlele.
