Chiefs Wonder Kid Scores On Debut

Kaizer Chiefs new 15-year-old signing Mfundo Vilakazi has scored on his debut after joining the club following his fine performances at the Philly’s Games.

The youngster moved to Amakhosi from amateur team Doornkop Students earlier in January and he immediately featured for the club’s Diski Challenge side on the weekend, coming off the bench for the final 20 minutes.

On top of that, Vilakazi scored his side’s fourth goal in the 4-1 win over Chippa United on Sunday, which impressed his coach Vela Khumalo. 

“It was a good game, although we did not play according to our style of play. We got the result and continued scoring. It’s still a work in progress,” he told the club’s media department.

“One of the highlights of the game was 15-year-old Vilakazi scoring the goal at the end of the game. 

“Another highlight of the game was us also getting our defending on point. We defended properly today.”

Chiefs’ Reserves have now scored four goals in three consecutive games and the coach wants him team to remain focussed.

“We are playing Sekhukhune at home next, with young players 17-18 years old. They must not get carried away. We want to continue with the run, let’s see how it goes,” Khumalo added.
