Kaizer Chiefs’ young sensation, Mfundo Vilakazi, is set to make his long-awaited return to action in the Dstv Diski Challenge (DDC) after missing the opening three matches of the season for an undisclosed reason.
As Chiefs prepare to face Stellenbosch FC at FNB Stadium, the return of the 17-year-old attacker has sparked excitement among fans and management alike.
Mfundo Vilakazi’s Absence
The talented attacker’s absence from the opening matches raised questions among fans and pundits, as no official reason was provided for his unavailability.
Despite his absence, Amakhosi’s youngsters demonstrated their depth and resilience by collecting seven points from their first three matches.
Chiefs’ DDC Performance
As things stand, Kaizer Chiefs sit fourth on the DDC log, trailing behind Orlando Pirates, Sekhukhune United, and Royal AM.
Royal AM and Sekhukhune have found themselves running in an unfamiliar territory in the early stages of the season.
After three matches, they are yet to drop points as they sit first and second in the log respectively.
