Edward Manqele could get second chance at Kaizer Chiefs

Posted: 4 July 2016 Time: 16:28

Kaizer Chiefs striker Edward Manqele could be granted a second chance to prove himself again next season following a meeting with Bobby Motaung.

Manqele is amongst two other players including Siyanda Xulu and Siphelele Mthembu who have been put on the transfer-list at Naturena.

However, a source close to Amakhosi reveals that the former Free State Stars striker has gone back to Chiefs with his cap in hand to ask for another opportunity next season.

“Manqele had a meeting with Bobby Motaung. He has asked for another chance,” the source tells KickOff.com. “The club appears willing to grant him another opportunity.”

Manqele will not find things any easier at Chiefs next season as Motaung has already signed three foreign attackers to offset the intended exits of Manqele, Mthembu and Bongani Ndulula, who has already joined Chippa United.

Zambian striker Lewis Macha and former Chicken Inn duo Mitchell Katsvairo and Edmore Chirambadare will be fighting for starting places next season, with reserve team product Emmanuel Letlotlo also keen to impress.

Last season's first-choice striker Camaldine Abraw has been ruled out for nine months with an Achilles injury – the only thing working in Manqele's favour.

The 29-year-old did not make coach Steve Komphela’s matchday squads last season despite playing under him previously at Ea Lla Koto, and the chance that he could still be sold to the highest bidder before the end of August remains.
