Zuma, Maluleka among Kaizer Chiefs old boys who can come back to haunt Amakhosi

The two sides are also set to meet each other in the two-legged MTN8 semi-finals, which take place on October 10 and 22

There are a handful of Kaizer Chiefs players at AmaZulu who may have a point to prove in Saturday's league clash at the FNB Stadium.

AmaZulu are a club on the up and they go into this game in third position, six places above Chiefs in ninth.

There has been a lot of player transfers between the two sides, with Siyethemba Sithebe the most recent player to move from AmaZulu to Amakhosi, doing well so far.

In the other direction, there are six former Chiefs stars, deemed surplus to requirements at Naturena, who could come back to haunt their old club - not only on Saturday, but potentially in the MTN8 as well.

  • George Maluleka AmaZulu

    George Maluleka

    Maluleka spent six fruitful seasons with the Glamour Boys and was a fans' favourite. After two frustrating seasons with Mamelodi Sundowns, the 33-year-old seems to have a new lease on life down in Durban.

  • Dumisani Zuma AmaZulu

    Dumisani Zuma

    AmaZulu took a chance on Zuma after his discipline problems at Chiefs. Still 27, the speedy right-winger has loads of talent and could prove to be an excellent signing for the KZN side if he stays focused and fit.

  • Ramahlwe Mphahlele, AmaZulu, August 2022

    Ramahlwe Mphahlele

    Ramahlwe Mphahlele spent six seasons at Kaizer Chiefs, as well as four years with both Mamelodi Sundowns and Swallows. Still only 32, he's won everything in the game and is a reliable and versatile defender. So far he's played four matches for Usuthu.

  • Sibusiso Mabiliso AmaZulu

    Sibusiso Mabiliso

    Arrived with high expectations at Chiefs from AmaZulu, but never got much of a chance, making just one start and five substitute appearances. Prior to leaving Usuthu, he'd been in contention for the national team and will now be eager to show the Soweto side what he's really capable of.

  • Keagan Buchanan and Ethan Brooks, AmaZulu vs TS Galaxy, February 2022

    Keagan Buchanan

    Buchanan never got to show his full potential at Chiefs as injury problems held him back. The 31-year-old former Maritzburg United midfield schemer is the kind of player who could open up the Amakhosi defence with his incisive passing game.

  • Lehlohonolo Majoro

    Majoro comes into the match high on confidence after netting the winner vs former side Cape Town City and remains a threat at the age of 36.
