AT THE PHILLY’S GAMES, MFUNDO CAUGHT THE EYE.
With performances at Philly’s games for Doornkop Students, Vilakazi earned the moniker “the problem child” and immediately became a social media sensation.
Former Chiefs players Reneilwe Letsholonyane and Joseph Molangoane praised the young man with a lovely left foot for his efforts.
Indeed, Molangoane went so far as to provide Vilakazi with his own football boots, which he used during his time with the Chiefs, as a motivating element for Vilakazi, who, like the now-Marumo Gallants star, aspired to play for the club as a professional player.
Vilakazi, on the other hand, might now make his professional debut somewhere else.
Although he was playing for Chiefs development this season, Soccer-Laduma reports that there are no promises that he will be back to play for the club in 2022.
This is due to the fact that development contracts are only for one season. However, it has been discovered that Chiefs are not resting on their laurels and are working on a solution to keep Vilakazi at the club, despite the fact that the player is rumored to be considering alternative options.
“He was registered with Kaizer Chiefs as an under 17 player around November last season, but now that the league is over, the player is no longer with Chiefs, since an amateur footballer is only allowed to one season with a team, especially in development, and the player has the right to go elsewhere.”
His heart is set on something else, but he is keeping it a secret for the time being. Mfundo, on the other hand, is now not with Kaizer Chiefs pending a decision,” the source said.
The Chiefs have offered him a deal as a DDC (DStv Diski Challenge) player, and there is another contract that cannot be publicized, but everything is still being discussed with his family and father.”
It’s still unclear where he’ll be next season.
