Kaizer Chiefs signed new wonderkid talent that is set to impact the club in future. The renowned South African football club, has announced the signing of a promising young talent from the unknown Tika Taka Sports Academy. This move marks a significant addition to the club’s youth development program and has sparked excitement among the Khosination and football enthusiasts alike.


In a statement released by Tika Taka Sports Academy recently. They expressed their delight in announcing the official joining of Kamogelo Malefo to the Kaizer Chiefs Under 19 Development. Malefo’s exceptional skills and talent stood out during the assessment process. Earning him recognition as a true standout among his peers. The academy extends its gratitude to the management team at Chiefs for recognizing Malefo’s potential. Providing him with this remarkable opportunity to showcase his abilities at their home of Naturena. 


Malefo, the 18-year-old prodigy, impressed with an impressive record of 16 goals and 18 assists in just 18 games last season. His remarkable performance caught the attention of Chiefs’ scouts. Leading to his inclusion in the club’s U19 structures. While the transition to senior football poses a challenge. Malefo’s name is one to watch in the coming months and years.


With Kaizer Chiefs’ wage bill imbalance, focusing on youth products like Malefo could prove to be a savvy business strategy. Players like Mfundo Vilakazi and Wandile Duba setting examples by gaining valuable game time serve as inspiration for academy talents like Malefo that Kaizer Chiefs signed. A player who is eager to break into the first team and make an impact. 


Despite rumours linking Kaizer Chiefs with several players during the January transfer window, the club opted not to make any signings. Players like Khanyisa Mayo and Fawaaz Basadien were speculated to join Amakhosi, but ultimately, no deals materialised.

Kaizer Chiefs signed Malefo and his arrival has raised hopes within the Chiefs’ camp. Particularly in addressing the team’s attacking prowess right now. With just 17 goals scored in 19 league games, the club is eager for Malefo to develop into a potent attacker for the senior team. The statistics reveal a pressing need for improved goal-scoring efficiency, with striker Ashley Du Preez notably missing several key opportunities this season.
