Kaizer Chiefs star landed an international deal.
Kaizer Chiefs Young Talent Mfundo Vilakazi Secures Major Puma Sponsorship?
In the world of South African football, one name has been on everyone’s lips since the beginning of 2022 – Mfundo Vilakazi.
The 17-year-old starlet, who joined the Kaizer Chiefs reserve team in January 2022, is making waves both on and off the pitch.
Mfundo Vilakazi Lands A New Sponsorship And His Journey
One of the most recent headlines surrounding Vilakazi is his impressive sponsorship deal with sports giant Puma.
Vilakazi’s journey to stardom began with his outstanding performances during the December 2021 Philly’s Games, a showcase of young talent in South African football.
His exceptional skills and promise caught the eye of many, leaving fans and pundits eager to see when he would make the leap to the Chiefs.
Joining Puma Family
A notable aspect of Vilakazi’s sponsorship deal with Puma is his switch from Nike, a brand he had previously been associated with due to Chiefs’ partnership with the sportswear giant.
However, since the club’s transition to Kappa, Vilakazi has embraced Puma, a testament to the player’s growing reputation and appeal in the sports industry.
Kaizer Chiefs Fans Worried
While Vilakazi’s sponsorship deal is undoubtedly a significant milestone in his young career, it’s essential to address the concerns of Chiefs’ fans.
Despite his undeniable talent, the wonderkid has yet to make an appearance for the club’s DStv Diski Challenge side this season.
This has left fans wondering when they will witness his skills in action on the pitch.
