However, there have been delays in his paperwork, leaving fans wondering when they will see him on the pitch.
The Wait for Paperwork
According to Chiefs coach Molefi Ntseki, the primary reason for Gonzalez’s delayed debut is the pending paperwork.

This administrative process is crucial to ensure that Gonzalez is eligible to play for the team and comply with league regulations.
“When it comes to Gonzalez playing this week or any other time, I think we are still waiting for the paperwork to be finalized,” said Ntseki. “But, if ever everything is done on time, I think he’ll be able to play for us when we come back from the national break,” he added.
Familiarising with the Kaizer Chiefs Team
While waiting for his paperwork to be sorted, Gonzalez has been using this time to familiarise himself with Chiefs’ style of play and to get to know his new teammates.
