Good news as Chiefs squad get boosted ahead of their next match


Kaizer Chiefs will return to the DStv Premiership action on Sunday against Maritzburg United at Harry Gwala Stadium. Both teams haven’t had a great to the 2021/22 season and this match is expected to be tough as the coaches know each other pretty well. However, Chiefs might have an upper hand due to their 2-1 victory in the Soweto Derby against Orlando Pirates. What’s impressive is that both Chiefs and United have been working harder at training during the FIFA international break. They’ve had enough time to plan for the Sunday encounter that can produce goals since three points are on the line.

According to reports, Amakhosi have received a welcome boost on their squad ahead of the match against Team of Choice. And he’s looking better than ever since he’s hungry for game time. Chiefs key player Lebogang Manyama could be given a run against United this weekend, as he has been buzzing at training. Stuart Baxter could use another attacker on his roaster, just to take some pressure off the likes of Keagan Dolly, Khama Billiat, and Bernard Parker. As that’s the trio Baxter has trusted with goals thus far this season. The return of Manyama will bolster the attack at Chiefs. After he suffered a recurring injury that had him on the sidelines. “Lebza has been looking good at training, he is sharp and could be included in the team for the next match [against Maritzburg United],” said a close source to Naturena camp talking to Soccer Laduma.

When Baxter was asked about the 31-year-old midfielder before the Soweto Derby, he stated that he had to go through a rehab programme that will get him to shape. As he needed to recover from his injury that has been messing with his time at Chiefs. “Our injuries, unfortunately, Lebo Manyama has broken down again and we pulled him from training, so he is back to a rehab programme,” said Baxter talking to the media.
