Kaizer Chiefs, situated in Soweto, has signed a three-year contract with a striker.
The kid that agreed to terms with Amakhosi is so gifted that he can play in two different positions as a striker and a defensive midfielder, making him an ideal addition to their roster for the 2023/24 season.
Vicky Makhawana, a teenage striker, has signed a three-year professional contract with Kaizer Chiefs and will play in the first team next season.
Vicky is a Kaizer Chiefs development player, and his performances for one of the club’s development teams piqued the club’s interest, resulting in the deal.
Vicky has now followed in the footsteps of fellow development players Mduduzi Shabalala, Wandile Duba, and Samkelo Zwane, who have all progressed from the lower leagues to the top flight.
Makhawana will have a dual role next season, as he will be available for the club’s reserves as well as the senior team when needed or given the opportunity to form part of a first team roster.
For whatever reason, the young athlete is dubbed ‘Beast’ in football circles. The youthful Khosi star recently scored three goals for the national under-17 team in Algeria.
Not too good news for Kaizer Chiefs fans as the club set to offload players
Wandile Duba, who was on a scoring spree in the DStv Diski Challenge last season and this season, failed to make a mark in the Kaizer Chiefs first team this season, but let’s hope Makhawana does not fail to make an impression in the top flight next season.
Kaizer Chiefs are anticipated to make announcements in the days following the end of the season.
Mduduzi Mdantsane and Given Msimango, who were the first reported signings ahead of the 2023/24 season, are also likely to be unveiled and announced soon, but Makhawana are now the first official signing.
Not to mention Thatayaone Ditlhokwe, who signed a pre-contract with Amakhosi in January and is expected to join the club soon from SuperSport United.
