Mark Mayambela, the former Orlando Pirates star, hopes he will be able to secure his move to Amakhosi. He grew up supporting this club so this will be a dream come true.
The former winger is looking forward to the opportunity to play with his favourite team from childhood. At this moment, the experienced player is a free agent after leaving Cape Town City in the middle of this season.
Mayambela added that some of his favourite players are Doctor Khumalo, Thabo Mooki, Emmanuel ‘Scara’ Ngobese and Arthur Zwane… He appreciates every member of the Kaizer Chiefs team and believes that they are all highly capable players.
Mark Mayambela could fulfil his childhood dream
“To play for Kaizer Chiefs, it is not just a desire but a dream. It was my dream from the moment I turned to professional soccer. Chiefs are the team I grew up watching and supporting. I used to like the legends like Jabu Pule Mahlangu, Scara Ngobese, Thabang Lebese, Doctor Khumalo, Arthur Zwane and Thabo Tsiki Tsiki Mooki. It was always the team in which I could see myself play.” – Mayambela added.
Mark Mayambela had a successful career with the Chiefs main opponents – Orlando Pirates. During his time with the club, they won six major trophies, the two of them being PSL titles. Before joining the Buccaneers, he was playing for Bloemfontein Celtic until 2010. At that point, he was also linked with a move to the Glamour Boys. However, he, unfortunately, didn’t make it – but he did join the Orlando Pirates.
“I always had more motivation when I’d play against Kaizer Chiefs. They were my favourite team but that is why I had to show off my skills. While playing for Bloemfontein Celtic, I was in contact with many clubs who had an interest in me. Some of them were teams from Europe and some were big teams in South Africa. So, in the end, I joined the Pirates and I only came close to joining the Chiefs.” – Mark said.
“At that time, we spoke to Bobby Motaung but after that, nothing happened.” Maybe now, the experienced player has more chances to join the current PSL champions. Check out the latest PSL results log and be ready when the season continues.
