Efmamjjasond Gonzales Palacios’ debut as a Kaizer Chiefs player might be delayed due to paper work.
The Colombian international was announced as a Kaizer Chiefs this week after joining from Bolivian side, Real Santa Cruz.
The 24-year-old started his career with Colombian side, Atletico Nacional before joining Argentinean side, San Lorenzo in February 2019. In November 2020 he was sent on loan All Boys in the Second Division.
“There is still an issue of paper work,” said Ntseki when asked about the player’s availability for the DStv Premiership match against Amazulu. We will be advised by the office when the player is ready and available for selection.
“But he is very tall and even bigger that myself which makes it very comfortable me for having him around. He is a young striker, he can play from central areas and wide.
“He is very quick for his height – we are looking for someone who can help us as a reference point. He can also help us with creativity in the last third [of the field] and hopefully getting us goals because that is what is missing in the team.
“But we are not putting pressure on him. We will work on creating chances, he’s welcomed and part of the Khosi nation. The only thing we can do is to do a proper induction in terms of the league.”
Amakhosi will host Amazulu at FNB Stadium today looking for the first win of the season. “Ja, it’s a home game and we must take advantage of it.
“We are looking forward it and the preparations are going well. What we can control is the good performance of the team and when we perform well as a team, we are obviously going to perform as a team.
“In terms of injuries, there are few players who are still out. There is Keagan Dolly who has just started training with the team and we have Edmilson Dove who has just started. And hopefully after the Fifa international break, they will all be available for selection.”
