Pollen Ndlanya urges Kaizer Chiefs to open cheque book

Posted: 14 May 2016 Time: 08:43

Former Kaizer Chiefs striker Pollen Ndlanya believes the club need to strengthen their attack by signing Bidvest Wits duo Phakamani Mahlambi and Sibusiso Vilakazi.

Chiefs have already lost the services of Reneilwe Letsholonyane and Reyaad Pieterse, whilst Morgan Gould and Siphelele Mthembu looks likely to follow through Naturena exit door.

Amakhosi are also set to finish the current campaign without any silverware after a disappointing first season under coach Steve Komphela.

Ndlanya says Chiefs need to delve into the market and focus on bringing in "deadly" attackers in order to put up a better challenge next season.

"Chiefs need to go and buy players. They need to sign deadly strikers. They can create chances but the only problem is to bury those chances," Ndlanya tells

"The club need to open their cheque book and go and sign quality players.

"Players like [Phakamani] Mahlambi and Sbusiso Vilakazi are the kind of players that Chiefs need to sign."

'Trompies' adds that he would have loved to see 'Yeye' staying at the club but respects the 33-year-old's decision to leave the club, after not being able to reach an agreement on a contract extension.

"It happens in football [where players leave top clubs]. It happened with Christiono Ronaldo when he left Manchester United," he added.

"We dont know what happened with the agreement [renewal offer]. Football is business, and his decision might have been based on seeking greener pastures.

"He [Letsholonyane] is a good player. The club will miss him and I hope they will get someone to replace him."
