Meet Chiefs' Incoming Striker Who Scored 16 Goals Last Season

Kaizer Chiefs have been the busiest in the current off-season without any doubt, they have sent out over 12 players who's contracts had run out and would not be renewed, the likes of Bernard Parker, Leonardo Castro, Lebohang Manyama and many others were released since the team did not renew their stay in the team, they also terminate Dumisani Zuma's contract who had discipline issues, they have have however made a couple of new signings whom they have confirmed through their communication channels and it looks like they are not done yet.

After having appointed Arthur Zwane as the head coach, surely they needed to get rid of dead wood and make sure that they have a squad thay Zwane needs to make sure that they compete in every trophy they participate in and it seems they have added a new strike if reports emerging having anything to go by.

According to Ghanaian journalist Nuhu Adams, Chiefs have completed the signing of a 28 year old forward from Tanzania giants Yanga SC on a three year deal, he reportedly scored a total of 16 goals last season and would be hoping to score more this coming season of the reported deal has indeed been completed.

"South African giants @KaizerChiefs 🇿🇦 have completed the signing of @yangasc1935 🇹🇿 striker Fiston Kalala Mayele (28) on a three-year contract, announcement soon. Mayele was 2nd highest scorer in the Tanzania Premier League this season with 16 goals," NUHU wrote on his Twitter handle.

Amakhosi will be a completely new team when the season starts, they have made a lot of changes starting from the technical department down to the playing personnel, they surely want to attempt to bring an end to their seven year trophy drought, the last time they won a trophy was in 2015 when Stuart Baxter was still at his best in terms of coaching, since then, it has just been dry season after the other and the closest they came to winning the league was in 2019/20 season where they lost the league on the lst day of the season.
