Nkosi back with Kaizer Chiefs
SIYABONGA Nkosi has revealed that he returned to Kaizer Chiefs because of their burning desire to win trophies next season.
Nkosi has signed a two-year deal with Chiefs from Lamontville Golden Arrows, ending speculation that he was heading to Orlando Pirates.
"When Chiefs announced that they were building a solid team to win trophies in the new season, I immediately told myself I'm going back home," Nkosi said yesterday.
"It's a great feeling to be back at Chiefs, who are one of the best clubs on the continent. I grew up supporting Chiefs."
Nkosi will be reunited with coach Stuart Baxter, who handed the 30-year-old his first Bafana Bafana cap in 2005.
"He's a great coach and I'm looking forward to being part of his soldiers who will contribute to the success of Chiefs in the new season," he said.
Amakhosi general manager Bobby Motaung told the club's website: "Siyabonga has a lot to offer and he is going to add to the depth in the team."
The midfielder started his professional career at Pirates in 2003-04 season.
He later went to Free State to play for Bloemfontein Celtic where he became one of the top midfielders before joining Amakhosi in 2006.
Nkosi spent only one season at Chiefs after impressing Bundesliga side Arminia Bielefeld. He also played for Israel's Maccabi Netanya before returning home to join SuperSport United.
He is one of the big names recruited by Chiefs in the past four weeks. Others are Siboniso Gaxa, Morgan Gould, Kingston Nkhatha and Brilliant Khuzwayo.
Motaung is still fishing in Free State for talented defender Mulomowandau Mathoho, who is also wanted by Mamelodi Sundowns.
"We mean business and we will keep on checking with Celtic because we want the player to come to Naturena," said Motaung.
Meanwhile, Moroka Swallows have signed Nigerian striker Felix Obada from Maritzburg United.
The biggest move of the weekend is that of former Bafana Bafana captain Aaron Mokoena, who will be playing for BidVest Wits after signing a two-year deal with the club.
