Former Kaizer Chiefs striker Siyabonga Nomvethe says that Amakhosi fans are still desperate for him to return to the club.

The former Bafana Bafana star enjoyed a glorious spell for Chiefs between 1998 and 2002, as he plundered 48 goals.

At the age of 41, Nomvethe claims that Chiefs supporters are still keen for him to return and retire at the club.

Nomvethe has been sitting at home and feels his fitness makes him eligible for a swift return to action.

He said, "With the body I have I can still play another two to three years, I'm telling you."

Briefly.co.za understands that AmaZulu plan to utilise Nomvethe in a PR role, such as an ambassador.

However, it seems the former Premier Soccer League player of the season is chomping at the bit to make use of his skills.
