As the club lurches from crisis to crisis during one of its worst seasons since the inception of the Premier Soccer League, fans have questioned the team’s penchant for Zimbabwean players at the expense of ‘quality’ signings.

Chiefs Director of Marketing, Jessica Motaung, defended the policy.

“I believe the players we have from Zimbabwe are wonderful signings,” Motaung said. Chiefs have six Zimbabwean players in their books, filling up all the available berths for foreign signings.

These are Tinashe Nengomashe, who however is registered as a local player after attaining his permanent residence permit, Abas Amidu, Jimmy Jambo, Willard Katsande, Thomas Sweswe and Lincoln Zwasiya.

Zimbabwean-born players such as Cleopas Dlodlo (late), Ebson Muguyo, Rabson Muchichwa, Knowledge Musona, Luke Petros, Mike Maringa, Kelvin Mushangazhike and Claudius Zviripayi among others have previously donned the black-and-gold of Chiefs.
