New Kaizer Chiefs recruit Godfrey Walusimbi has spoken about what he hopes to achieve with the historic and glamorous PSL side. Walusimbi was unveiled by Kaizer Chiefs on Thursday.
Walusimbi joins the club from Kenyan side Gor Mahia. His transfer to Kaizer Chiefs has been painful and at times incredibly controversial. Gor claimed Kaizer Chiefs tried to poach Walusimbi without following the proper process.
Both clubs eventually settled their differences and agreed on a transfer deal. Kaizer Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung implied that Walusimbi would be available to play immediately because the protracted nature of the negotiations had allowed the club to get all his paperwork.
Briefly.co.za gathered that the club’s coach Giovanni Solinas will hope that Walusimbi will help to strengthen his side’s defensive ability. Solinas has already identified the defence as his side’s weakest department.
Kickoff.co.za reported that Walusimbi said he viewed the move to Kaizer Chiefs as the next logical step in his career. He said the club was renowned throughout Africa as one of the top side’s to play for and had a reputation of always playing to win.
Walusimbi said the move to Kaizer Chiefs was a definitive step up for him. He added that he had been training with the club for a while and said he had already adapted and integrated to his new surroundings.
He said he looked forward to making valuable contributions to his new club and hoped he could help the club bring home some silverware.
Motaung said he was glad the process was finally completed and wished Walusimbi all the best as he embarked on his new role at the club.
