Kaizer Chiefs finally got back to winning ways after a 2-0 victory over Royal AM.

Chiefs' new foreign star, Christian Saile Basomboli made quite the impact off the bench, assisting Ashley Du Preez for Amakhosi's second goal.

Ex-Chiefs player and football analyst Junior Khanye praised Saile for his impressive debut but admitted that he still wants to see if the DRC star can meet the standards of Collins Mbesuma.

Here's what the fans had to say on the "Junior Khanye praises Chiefs' latest signing" story:

"I will judge Saile after 5 games and I hope he won't be given penalties to boost his confidence," says user853624. 

"Chill Junior and let the man play his game. He seems eager to do well which is good to see. If they pass the ball early to him, he has pace and physical presence to do damage. Hopefully, he can score many goals," says Khothakhosi. 

"He is a very good player. If you know football, you can have impact immediately without this nonsense of acclimatisation processes. I once saw raw talent in Old John and Etienne Nsunda in their first 5 minutes and said these are great players and they both moved abroad. This Saile guy is passing by. He is the real deal," says skepmaswikaneng.

Orlando Pirates are set to unveil their new signing, Makhehlene Makhaula, before the transfer deadline today. 

The AmaZulu playmaker reportedly signed a two-year deal with the Sea Robbers, which was meant to be in effect from July. Now Makhaula is set to move six months before his contract agreement. 

On the "Pirates set to sensationally unveil blockbuster new signing" story, a reader felt that the Buccaneers should have opted for one of Cape Town City's midfield talents: 

"Should have signed Nodada instead of Makhaula," says Madumane_Escobar 

"If it were Sundowns that signed this player, we would have heard endless cries from all corners," says makhause2.
