Zwane says it’s ‘key’ for Amakhosi to ‘get the number nine’ when the season opener comes to an end

Kaizer Chiefs coach Arthur Zwane said they were still looking to sign another striker but admitted that the right options would not be presented.

Amakhosi’s attacking force suffered a major blow at the end of the season when Leonardo Castro, Bernard Parker and Samir Nurkovic left the Soweto giants.

In their forward division, the Chiefs only added Stellenbosch’s Ashley Du Preez, and Zwane is concerned about the lack of depth.

“It was key for us to get a number nine, but unfortunately, it’s very difficult at the moment to get the type of striker we’re looking for,” Zwane is quoted by KickOff.

“The guys we’ve identified aren’t on the market, and their team doesn’t want to sell.

“We attended the pre-season tournaments and watched the CHAN Tournament), and watched all the matches that took place in KZN.

“We also watched the qualifying matches, the World Cup and the Cup of African Nations. So it’s difficult, people that we care about, like Musa Kamara, we still find it difficult to bring him in.”

Amakhosi kicks off their 2022/23 campaign on Saturday against Royal AM in KwaZulu Natal.

Starts at 17:30.
