Kaizer Chiefs Boost As Star Player Returns For Sundowns Clash

Kaizer Chiefs get a boost when a key player returns for the clash against Sundowns.

Chiefs boost as star returns for Sundowns battle.

Phathutshedzo Nange of Kaizer Chiefs is back in contention for a starting spot as Amakhosi prepare to face Mamelodi Sundowns.

Nange was sent a red card in the Chiefs' final game of the 21/22 season against the Swallows, and his ban was carried over to the following season.

As a result, the midfielder was unable to assist his team as Chiefs were defeated 1-0 by Royal AM in Chatsworth on the weekend of the 22/23 DStv Premiership season.

Nange also did not play for the Chiefs team that destroyed Maritzburg United 3-0 earlier this week at FNB Stadium.

However, having completed his ban, the 30-year-old is now available for Chiefs' crucial match against league-champion Mamelodi Sundowns.

Making the starting eleven, though, won't be simple. Njabulo Blom, Cole Alexandre, and Sabelo Radebe are just a few of the many alternatives available to chiefs in the park's center.

With the addition of Siyethemba Sithebe from AmaZulu and Yusuf Maart from Sekhukhune United, who gave a game-winning performance against Maritzburg United, Chiefs have also strengthened their center defense.

Nange made 24 appearances for Amakhosi last season and contributed with a goal, making him a key member of the Chiefs team. On Saturday, when Amakhosi defeat Mamelodi Sundowns, he will be attempting to reenter the lineup.

With the addition of Supersport Sipho Mbule to their squad and the rumored completion of Bongani Zungu's immigration, the Brazilians have also improved their options in central midfield.
