Premier League

9 ex-Chiefs players aiming to star at PSL club

Pretoria Callies has provided a haven for nine ex-Kings players, including experienced forward Collins Mbesuma.

Mbesuma has played for nine South African clubs, including Orlando Pirates, Moroka Swallows, Mamelodi Sundowns, and Kaizer Chiefs, among others, during a career that also included a stint with English Premier League team Portsmouth.

Edward Manqele, who spent just under two years at Naturena, is also battling it out at the Pretoria club.

Since the start of the season, Keletso Sifama and Thabo Mokoena have been on loan from Chiefs.

Philani Cele, Sizwe Twala, Itumeleng Shopane, Mpho Sitayitayi, and Edmore Chirambadare round out the former Chiefs cast.

Chirambadare, who signed a one-year contract with the option of a second at the start of the season, is causing a stir with his goals.

Chirambadare, dubbed "Spanner," has five goals in five games and is among the early leaders in the first division scoring lists, alongside fellow countryman Ishmael Wadi of JDR Stars (six goals) and Polokwane City striker Khuda Muyaba of Malawi (seven goals).

To date, only eight games have been played in the top division.

The 29-year-old Zimbabwean spent two years with Chiefs, scoring just once before going to Maccabi Tel Aviv at the start of the 2018/19 season, where he stayed for a season before heading to Real Kings for another year.
