'Chiefs have enough fire-power'

Former Kaizer Chiefs striker Lucky Maselesele feels Amakhosi have enough fire-power going into the new season, especially after bringing in Khama Billiat from Mamelodi Sundowns.
One of Chiefs’ main concerns last season was the number of opportunities they were wasting in front of goal. They finished the campaign with 27 goals in 30 matches and supporters will no doubt be expecting improvements in the coming campaign.
Billiat has the ability to score and create, but he will definitely need support from the likes of Leonardo Castro, Ryan Moon and Bernard Parker if Chiefs are to get back to their glory days.
“The acquisition of Billiat was a good move from Chiefs, in terms of the quality that he has. He is a well established player and he will add a lot of value there. With the experience of guys like Castro and Parker, as well as the presence of Moon, I think Chiefs will have enough fire-power. Those are quality players we are talking about,” Maselesele says.
Maselesele reckons Amakhosi need a few more signings before the season gets underway.
“My main worry is the left side. That’s where I feel they need to add. Also I feel they need someone at the back and in midfield since they missed out on signing Andile Jali. Had they signed Jali, I feel he was going to push the rest of the guys.”
