French-based star spotted at Kaizer Chiefs Naturena – report

A French-based was spotted at Kaizer Chiefs Naturena sending the PSL fraternity into overdrive, according to FARPost. What was the experienced forward doing there? Let’s find out. 

Mothiba’s mysterious visit sparks transfer speculation

In a shocking turn of events, out-of-contract Bafana Bafana international striker, Lebogang Mothiba, was spotted at the Kaizer Chiefs village in Naturena on Friday afternoon. This surprise visit has set tongues wagging and raised questions about a potential move to the Soweto giants.

Chiefs’ rebuilding efforts

Kaizer Chiefs are looking to bounce back from a disappointing 2023/24 DStv Premiership campaign. So Mothiba’s visit may be a sign of things to come. With a new coach at the helm, Chiefs are keen to reinforce their strikeforce and left-back positions. The club’s poor performance last season saw them finish in 10th place. So they are eager to strengthen their squad for the upcoming season.

Mothiba’s current situation

The 27-year-old striker is a free agent after his contract with French side Racing Strasbourg expired. Mothiba is currently nursing a knee injury but expects to return to full fitness in “three or four weeks”. Before his injury, Mothiba started five matches and made 10 substitute appearances, scoring three goals. His impressive record in Ligue 1, with 26 goals and seven assists in 118 outings, makes him a valuable asset for any team.

A potential move to Chiefs?

Speculation is rife that Mothiba may have engaged in discussions with Chiefs’ leadership about a potential move. With his injury set to heal and his sights set on returning to international football. A move to Chiefs could be the perfect opportunity for Mothiba to revive his career. Chiefs’ fans are eagerly waiting to see if the club will secure Mothiba’s signature and bolster their attack for the upcoming season. Is Mothiba the man that Kaizer Chiefs need? Can the family hierarchy convince him to ditch Europe and come back home? Only time will tell.
