Daniel Akpeyi
Fans in South Africa have some contrasting views regarding the Nigerian shot-stopper, who is currently a free agent

A section of Kaizer Chiefs fans believe releasing Daniel Akpeyi was a mistake and it has contributed to the struggles the team is facing in the goalkeeping department.

The Nigerian is a free agent and the discussion on whether he should be signed has been brought about after coach Arthur Zwane dropped veteran Itumeleng Khune - in favour of Brandon Peterson, from the side that defeated Royal AM 2-0 on Sunday in the Premier Soccer League game.

Orlando Pirates fans are not interested in the experienced goalkeeper and have suggested other options who they believe are better.
