Kaizer Chiefs striker Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana’s national team coach has provided the major highlights that will set the Burundian towards success at his new club.

Bimenyimana broke the ice with his first two goals for AmaKhosi this past weekend in the 2-1 win over SuperSport United becoming the first Chiefs player to score a brace this year.

The last player to score a double was Khama Billiat in November last year when the Zimbabwean smashed two against Swallows FC at Dobsonville Stadium as Chiefs ran riot to win 3-1.

"He has the mentality of a beast of a striker which is what you need in a striker at this level in this game," Jimmy Ndayizeye, the Burundi national team coach tells KickOff.

Ndayizeye doubles up as coach of Burundi Ligue A leaders Le Messager Ngozi FC. 

"Caleb will show that he is hungry which is the character that you need in a good striker because you want them to score goals.

"That is the kind of mentality is what you need in a good player and now that he scored those two goals his confidence will grow. 

"This will all benefit us in the national team because Caleb can now start games just like Saido Berahino and Sudi Abdallah.   

"With his mentality, he is a player whose confidence will only grow from here as time goes on at his new club in South Africa.

"I think he can score a minimum of 10 goals in his first season playing in South Africa if he maintains his cool. 

"All they need to do is give him the chance to play because that will be the only to determine what he can offer his club.

"Now that he has been given a chance to start and scored two goals, I think the club will now have more reasons to start him again.

"Let him start games so that he grows into biting even more and having the aggression that his club requires of him," says Ndayizeye.
