There are additional Kaizer Chiefs players, according to Siya sources, who are only planning to go back to action within roughly 6 weeks.
Just in November, after the Knee Operation disclosed last Sunday by the club, did strike Samir Nurkovic hope to return, his colleague, Leonardo Castro, might come back only at that time, it is thought.
The Colombian has spent several months restoring his glute tears in his homeland, and the Siya team said that the Chiefs medical department expected Castro to return to Naturena at the beginning of this month.
In the early days, it was reported that the Glamor Boys would return eventually sometime in November, given the recent setback in relation to their possibilities in the final third.
Now that Castro and Nurkovic are on the move, the leaders go to AmaZulu on Saturday with just Khama Billiat, Lebo Manyama and Lazarous Kambole to whom Stuart Baxter, three players’ coach, may look.
However, the difficulty, though he had been put on the transfer list by the club in the July, is the only one among the trio who is considered a natural striker.
In fact, during its goalless draw versus Marumo Gallants last Saturday, Baxter suggested utilizing Nkosingiphile Ngcobo as the false No.9.
Leaders can bring in strikers, but they are restricted to freelancers, who must also be South Africans because their foreign quota has been exhausted.
