Kaizer Chiefs New Signees Begins Training With Amakhosi New Kits, Best So Far?


The Kaizer Chiefs have officially returned to Naturena on Wednesday to begin pre-season training as Arthur Zwane's time in charge of the Soweto giants has officially begun. Amakhosi has been very active in the transfer market ahead of the 2022/23 season both in terms of signing players out and signing in new players and this has seen the entire Kaizer Chiefs sqaud changed.

Within the week, the Glamor Boys have confirmed the arrival of eight players, namely Dillan Solomons, Mahlatsi, George Matlou, Sithebe, Ashley du Preez, Zitha, Mduduzi Shabalala and Yusuf Maart, who have officially signed the paper and would join the rest of the Kaizer Chiefs sqaud in training.

Meanwhile, it looks like the new boy Ashley Du Preez will wear the number 9 jersey that was released by Serbian striker Samir Nurkovic who was recently released by the club. If Ashley Du preez is to be Samir Nurkovic's replacement he has a lot of work to do, even Zitha Kwintha who is to replace Daniel Cardoso.

Here are the stats of the sacked Amakhosi legends;

Samir Nurkovic is a striker who has played in 13 Premier League games this season, totaling 812 minutes. Samir Nurkovic scores an average of 0.11 goals per 90 minutes a player is on the pitch. This offensive form currently places them at 105th out of 389 Premier League players who have played at least 3 games. This player has scored a total of 1 league goal so far this season, which places him 15th in the Kaizer Chiefs team's top scorers list.

Daniel Cardoso is a defender who has featured in 22 Premier League games this season, playing a total of 1693 minutes. Daniel Cardoso averages 0.85 goals per 90 minutes when a player is on the pitch. Their clean sheet percentage is currently 36%. This means Daniel Cardoso has maintained 8 clean sheets of the 22 matches the player has played. See how they qualified against other players in the Premier League. Daniel Cardoso has scored a total of 1 league goal so far this season, ranking 13th on the Kaizer Chiefs top scorers list.

With these amazing stats, do you think the new players will perform according to expectation or did Kaizer Chiefs sign a bunch of Lazarus Kambole's?
