AmaZulu hijack deal for Kaizer Chiefs target?

Not what the Soweto giants had in mind.

Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates might lose out on a reported transfer target with rumours that AmaZulu are making strides to sign the player.

KAIZER CHIEFS, ORLANDO PIRATES PIRATES FACE COMPETITION FOR MOGAILA

According to SoccerLaduma, AmaZulu is closing in on the signing of reported K.Chiefs target Shaune Mogaila. The Royal AM man has made 15 appearances in the league this season with two assists. In February, we reported interest from Orlando Pirates:

“Versatile former Royal AM wide player Shaune Mogaila is now available on a free transfer, and he’s been a target for the Buccaneers for some time. According to FARPost, Pirates aren’t the only side showing an interest. Mogaila can operate on either flank of attack or defence, making him a priceless option. Although not a direct replacement, he’d be a great squad player,”

PIRATES BOSS IS SPOILED FOR CHOICE

Jose Riveiro has a clear bill of health with competition in all departments of the pitch. Against Cape Town City, the Sea Robbers were without Patrick Maswanganyi so they recalled Lesedi Kapinga in the number 10 role. Tshegofatso Mabasa continued his rich vein of goal-scoring form with another brace, taking him to 13 league strikes this term. Riveiro has the luxury of bringing Nkosinathi Sibisi, Katlego Otladisa, Ndabayithethwa Ndlondlo, Evidence Makgopa and Karim Kimvudi off the bench in the Mother City. If that’s not an illustration of the riches at his disposal, nothing is. Innocent Maela and Siphelo Baloni were unused subs, and Monnapule Saleng wasn’t even in the matchday squad. The Buccaneers have safely made their way into the Nedbank Cup final, awaiting the winner of Stellies vs Sundowns on Sunday.

THE RACE FOR SECOND PLACE HEATS UP

Stellies forward Iqraam Rayners has 14 goals in the DStv Premiership this season, putting him in pole position for the Golden Boot. Pirates star striker Mabasa is his nearest challenger with 13 strikes. Stellenbosch lead Pirates by three points in the race for second place with four matches to play. Pirates host Chippa next in the league, the same team they beat to reach the Nedbank Cup final, while Stellenbosch welcome Usuthu to the Winelands. Both of those matches take place on Wednesday 8 May.
