Kaizer Chiefs, a renowned football club, has recently signed Sibongiseni Mthethwa, a 29-year-old player from Stellenbosch FC. The club’s coach, Molefi Ntseki, expressed his optimism about the new addition, stating that Mthethwa, a utility player, will bring stability to the team.
Recent Match: A Disappointing Loss
However, the news of the signing came on the heels of a disappointing 1-0 defeat against SuperSport United at Peter Mokaba Stadium. The defeat led to an outpouring of frustration from the club’s supporters, who expressed their dissatisfaction with the mixed results under Ntseki’s leadership.

Despite the challenging circumstances, Ntseki remains hopeful. He views Mthethwa’s signing as a consolation and a strategic move to strengthen his team’s midfield or defence and overall squad depth. “He will bring stability, he is a quality player and good quality players always come into the team to add value,” Ntseki said in his post-match press conference.
Official Announcement: Warm Welcome
The official Twitter account of Kaizer Chiefs confirmed Mthethwa’s arrival and extended a warm welcome to him. Sporting director Kaizer Motaung Jr echoed this sentiment, praising Mthethwa’s skills and experience. He expressed confidence in Mthethwa’s ability to contribute immediately and uphold the expectations associated with wearing the gold and black jersey of Amakhosi.
The road ahead for Amakhosi doesn’t get any easier as they prepare for their upcoming match against Mamelodi Sundowns in the MTN8 semifinal second leg at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday. The first leg ended in a 1-1 draw.
