"Meaning This Season Might Start next Game For Chiefs, KAIZER CHIEFS IS BACK IN TRAINING."

@NnaModisi said:

"Good news but he must not be rushed this is going to be a long season for us so he must be fully fit before he can play."

@cymontaneous advised:

"Don't rush him Khosi. We saw what happened last night when Arsenal rushed Partey. Let's not rush him Khosi the season is long. Our neighbours are dropping points so we don't have to panic yet."

@MboniseniShange added:

"Welcome back to our lethal striker, he is the only one we've got. I hope, he is fit for a game-time soon. But they must not rush him because it might be worse than if we had let him recover well. I hope he gains his form as well to hit the ground running."

In other Kaizer Chiefs news, Briefly.co.za recently reported that Gavin Hunt wants his team to up their game. Hunt was heard saying this after Chiefs scored a 1-0 victory against Cameroonian side PWD Bamenda in Limbe.

Hunt does not seem to think Chiefs are doing enough in terms of scoring goals. Speaking to the team's media team after the match, Hunt said that he had thought it was important for the strikers to attempt to score more goals than they currently are.

He did, however, mention that he thought they were physically fit and quite capable of a more pleasing performance.
