The Kaizer Chiefs Burundian trialist has gone down as the most famous trialist in the PSL. The player has now reportedly looked elsewhere after he was put on what we can call ‘a waiting list.’
As we previously reported, Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana spent around a month on trial at Chiefs where he apparently impressed but failed to prove as a perfect fit for the team’s upcoming new playing style.
According to this new report, coach Arthur Zwane had decided Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana needs to wait while Amakhosi take an extended time to decide on his future.
“Burundian striker Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana who had been under assessment at Kaizer Chiefs is already pursuing a move to Canada following an unsuccessful trial at Naturena,” Kick Off reported.
“He was told the club will revert to him after they have decided but there has been no word,” the report added.
“With Amakhosi noncommittal, Bimenyimana is already pursuing other options in the next chapter of a career that has already taken him to Rwanda, Slovakia, Lithuania, Latvia, and Kazakhstan.
“He has returned to his family residence in Canada and has already been in touch with other contacts with regards to finding a new club with the possibility of returning to Europe in line,” the outlet added.
Following the departures of Samir Nurkovic and Leonardo Castro, coach Zwane has remained with what are essentially forwards rather than the traditional number nine.
The likes of Ashley Du Preez and Khama Billiat are the only options we can refer to as strikers but are essentially ‘fasle nines’ who play outside of the box without any outstanding physical qualities.
Meanwhile, the new PSL season gets underway this weekend. Amakhosi take on Royal AM at the Chatsworth Stadium on Saturday at 17:30.
