Jimmy Jambo’s future at Kaizer Chiefs uncertain

The Zimbawean-born left-back hasn’t played a competitive game since breaking his leg against Bidvest Wits last season

Kaizer Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung has told Goal that they won’t be reinforcing their goalkeeping department during the current transfer window.

Captain Itumeleng Khune remains the only experienced shot-stopper at Naturena with Brilliant Khuzwayo and Reyaad Pieterse his understudies, but Motaung said that department is covered.

“We are not going to sign an experienced goalkeeper. We have three quality goalkeepers at the moment. Khuzwayo and Reyaad are young and quality goalkeepers.

“We are going to add one more, probably from development, because our goalkeeper coach wants a young keeper,” Motaung told Goal.

Meanwhile, Motaung confirmed that they will be assessing Ugandan centre-back in the next few days as they continue to search for a quality central defender.

“We are having [Anthony] Manison from Ghana, but he will be going back and we will have a defender from Uganda to assess in the next few days. I cannot reveal the name at the moment,” he said.

Bobby Motaung also confirmed that Jimmy Jambo’s future at Chiefs will be determined by whether he recovers in time for the new season or not.

Jambo broke his leg early last season when Chiefs played against Bidvest Wits, and the Zimbabwean hasn’t played until today.

“We are still monitoring his injury. It will determine whether we keep him or let him go. If he doesn’t recover in time then we will have to let him go,” added Motaung.

Amakhosi have added another left-back Simphiwe Mtsweni to their first team, bringing the number of left-backs to four including Jambo.
