The supporters are keen to see the striker emulate the Amakhosi legends who donned the jersey before him

Kaizer Chiefs fans want to see new signing Christian Saile Basomboli produce the kind of magic witnessed during the times of Knowledge Musona and Thabang Lebese.

Basomboli was officially unveiled by the club on Wednesday and handed the No21 shirt which has been worn by legendary figures at the club such as Musona and Lebese.

While the supporters feel the club still needs to improve in other areas, especially in midfield, they want the striker to maintain the standards set by those who donned the jersey before him.

  • Arthur Zwane, Kaizer Chiefs

    Zwane doing a good job

    I pray every supporter can acknowledge the change he [Zwane] has made. For him to be in the top three at the end of the season will be an improvement to our team. If you know what the Motaung family and its management has done to the team, they destroyed the greatest team ever and this guy is trying. -@MG_FAYI

  • Arthur Zwane, Kaizer Chiefs

    Zwane should appreciate the support

    I hope Zwane sees how much faith the management has in him. No other coach has failed so much and still did things his way and got what he wanted. Being fully supported.

  • Knowledege Musona.

    Hope he does better than Musona

    The last time we had a deadly jersey number 21 was with this god [Knowledge Musona] the Smiling Assassin. Hope he [Basomboli] does better than him. Otherwise, welcome to the team sir. You're our last hope to this nation of lost souls. -@KillzShoddy

    Last amazing striker to wear 21 was Knowledge Musona. We need goals, that jersey number needs to be revived. -@Ntsika_17

    Better produce Knowledge Musona's magic and more. Welcome Saile. Let me give you the nickname of The Punisher. -@LesMvundlela

  • Christian Saile Basomboli of Nchanga Rangers.

    He shouldn’t care what fans say

    Happy with this acquisition. Hopefully he'll live up to expectations and not dwell much on what we supporters say whenever we lose. -@NgomaneHopewell

  • Kaizer Chiefs

    Chiefs yet to solve the problem

    Some decisions are questionable but what can we do or say? Our team is avoiding the real problem. Who will supply and who is our destroyer? -@FanzoMotau

    We need a holding midfielder and the transfer window is about to close. -@LehlohonoloSho8

  • Keagan Dolly, Kaizer Chiefs, January 2023

    Amakhosi need a winger

    We need a natural winger who is technically gifted and not afraid to challenge opponents.

  • Kaizer Chiefs striker Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana.

    Pressure off Bimenyimana now

    Our answer in front of goal. This will take pressure off [Bonfils-Caleb] Bimenyimana and we [Chiefs] will start banging in goals left and right. -@khayaworker

  • Arthur Zwane Kaizer Chiefs.

    Zwane should be backed

    Arthur Zwane [the] only coach who has a better direction and a fantastic philosophy. The club has been losing games but is playing sensational football compared with all those coaches in the past six years. They only need to be consistent let's support him patiently.
