Bobby Motaung: Manger Happy with Khama Billiat and Company

Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs club manager Bobby Motaung is happy that new recruits Khama Billiat, Virgil Vries, Kabelo Mahlasela and Letlhogonolo Mirwa have blended with the rest of the squad having made their debut in the Maize Cup.

“I am happy with the players we signed. We didn’t only sign for the sake of it, but we were strategic as we wanted players who fit well in the club’s structure.”

Motaung said that new manager that Giovanni Solinas would need to hit the ground running to appease Amakhosi fans who are starved for trophies.

Motaung told SunSport yesterday that the Italian had yet to start his job in Naturena as he didn’t have a permit to work in South Africa.

This means Patrick Mabedi will continue to be in charge as he guided Amakhosi to successfully defend the Bokone Bophirima Maize Cup in Orkney at the weekend.

Motaung added, “We are in the process of applying for Solinas’ work permit. He is not conducting training sessions at the moment, but we hope he will obtain the permit soon.”

He hopes the new Chiefs jersey launched yesterday would inspire players to restore their glory days. Chiefs failed to win a single trophy in the past three years under coach Steve Komphela.
