Chiefs wonderkid makes instant impact

Premiership

Kaizer Chiefs' 15-year-old wonderkid Mfundo Vilakazi made an instant impact on his debut for the club's reserve team over the weekend.

Vilakazi officially joined the Amakhosi on 14 January after starring for amateur outfit Doornkop Students at the 30th edition of the Philly's Games in Tembisa, Gauteng, earlier this month.

His performances at the televised tournament caught the attention of a host of DStv Premiership sides but it was Chiefs who won the race to secure his signature, and he has made an instant impact at the club.

Having initially teamed up with the club's U15 team, Obrigado, as he is affectionately known, was promoted for Sunday's DStv Diski Challenge clash against Chippa United and marked his debut with a goal in the dying seconds of the encounter.

His contribution at the Wolfson Stadium in Gqeberha rounded out a comprehensive 4-1 victory for Vela Khumalo's side, who have now scored four goals in three consecutive matches in the competition.

Khumalo previously suggested that the prodigious talent's introduction and game time with the reserves would be managed but fans will be hoping to see more of him when the team lines up against Sekhukhune United on Saturday, 29 January.
