Chiefs unveil new signings

Kaizer Chiefs unveil new signings

Posted: 4 August 2010 Time: 3:40 pm

Kaizer Chiefs today officially unveiled eight of their new additions at the club's headquarters in Naturena.

New striker Sthembiso Ngcobo, who had already been announced as the club's new signing, was part of the group too. He joined the team from Free State Stars.

Chiefs have also roped in Siyabulela Songwiqi, the left-winger who arrives from Bay United. Steven Ncanana, a midfield anchorman, has been signed from African Wanderers, who campaign in the Vodacom League.

The trio starred for Chiefs during the club's friendly against Eleven Arrows in Namibia.

Benedict Jacobs, Tshegofatso Ramabu, Nelson Malula (all midfielders), Lucky Baloyi (defender) and Mpho Sitayitayi (striker) have been promoted from the development team.

Head coach Vladimir Vermezovic admitted at the press conference that he was looking for "Bafana Bafana players" and not the players at the same level as those currently in the team, telling the media that Ngcobo was not on the list of the players he had targeted to bolster the team. The Serb further said the team is still negotiating with Siyabonga Sangweni of Golden Arrows.

However, Vermezovic admitted it had proved difficult signing the Bafana players he had set his eyes on. "When Chiefs want to sign players the prices go sky high," he said.

New signings on joining Chiefs.

Ngcobo "I'm very happy to have joined Chiefs. It is a big team in South Africa… I don't have any promises to make. I can handle the pressure."

Songwiqi "I thank God for this opportunity."

Ncanana "I don't want to make promises to the Chiefs fans, but I'm ready."

Jacobs "All I can say is my dream has come true."

Sitayitayi "I'm ready to help the team in whichever way."

Ramabu, Malula and Baloyi were not available at the press briefing.

Stop been an a$$hole , kanti wena unjani , I mean we have promoted 5 youngsters to the 1st team.

At Naturena we have football knowledge and that's what is lacking @ Domkop, that's why your hopeless team keeps signing 16 player every season.

It is alleged that Ajax Cape Town striker Diyo Sibisi was on the Kaizer Chiefs wanted list & after publishing this article , Sundowns officials are in Cape Town at the moment and they're prepared to dig deeper and willing to pay R6 million for the service of the striker.

It looks like there's nothing worth knowing from what most people say on this forum. Most of you just want to be comedians, strive to make up corny stories hoping they ll entertain others. This is football, we are supposed to talk about that. Ignorance is such a deadly disease because it can leave you brainless. Congrats to my team for doing things like professionals, 5 new players from development in almost every department on the field will surely anchor the team. This season is gonna be interesting, not only for KC but since every team has made strategic moves
