Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana is now out of favour at Kaizer Chiefs despite still being the club’s top scorer in the league.
The evidence of how much Kaizer Chiefs have lost
faith in Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana has increasingly become obvious with
developments in recent weeks.
Bimenyimana has seven league goals from 16
appearances in the league and remains the club’s top goal scorer in the DStv
Premiership with two games to play.
He has also scored once in four cup games.
Though he is the league top scorer with a healthy
scoring return of a goal in every 133 minutes that he plays which keeps in the
top five ranks of the most productive strikers, he hasn’t convinced Arthur
Zwane has fielded the Burundian only once in the
last six league games which was when he gave him 28 minutes as a substitute
against Sekhukhune United.
Bimenyimana has only played 90 minutes only once
this year and is yet to score in the league in nine appearances.
Word coming out of Naturena is that Bimenyimana’s
confidence has dropped with the realisation that he no longer has the
confidence of Zwane.
The Chiefs coach was never keen on the Burundian
and once stated that he is not what they were looking after watching him in
action during pre-season.
AmaKhosi only signed him after they failed with
their other targets.
There are some suggestions that the towering
forward will be sacrificed should Chiefs get their transfer targets even though
he still has a running contract.
AmaKhosi are in the market for new
attackers and have cast their eyes on the Stellenbosch pair of Iqraam Rayners
and Junior Mendieta.
Mendieta will take over from Khama
Billiat while Rayners will be one of two new options further up the field along
with another new addition that the club is keen on making.
Cape Town City’s Khanyisa Mayo has been
mentioned as a target, but this will all depend on how far wide they are
willing to stretch their budget.
