As Amakhosi returned to winning ways with a 2-0 victory against Royal AM, Democratic Republic of the Congo international striker Christian Saile Basomboli was impressive for Arthur Zwane’s side after coming on in the second half for Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana for his first ever match in Mzansi.

“Based on what I saw, there is promise although I cannot say much as yet because I haven’t seen much of him. There is promise about the guy because I have seen some good touches from him and he looks like someone who can take players on, which is good for the calibre of a player needed to play for Chiefs,” said Khanye, speaking to the Siya crew.

“I saw his assist from which Ashley Du Preez scored and that was impressive. I saw him trying a shot at goal but it was off the target and that’s why I say there is promise about the guy. But the question to ask is, can the guy go on to rank among some of the best players to have been signed by Chiefs over the years? I’m talking about guys like Collins Mbesuma, Tinashe Nengomasha and Patrick Mabedi, among others. I’m asking this because we have seen Chiefs signing players like (Edmore) Chirambadare and (Michelle) Katsvairo, the likes of (Anthony Akumu) Agay and Samir Nurkovic just to name a few, as well as (Letlhogonolo) Mirwa and I was not pleased. But like I say, there is hope about this guy (Saile),” concluded Khanye.
