RIGHT on the heels of learning that the Southern Gauteng High Court has dismissed an urgent application by Ajax Cape Town to set aside an Absa Premiership arbitration ruling to ban Zimbabwean international Tendai Ndoro from playing for the club, Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs are reportedly set to offload former Chicken Inn midfielder Edmore Chirambadare.
According to Kickoff website Chirambadare is among four players that are set to leave Amakhosi at the end of the season.
Other players reported as being on their way out are goalkeeper Brilliant Khuzwayo, Keagan Buchanan and Tsepo Masilela.
Chirambadare has struggled to get into the Chiefsa�� line-ups since his arrival at the club in 2016.
Mid last year Chiefs ditched ex-Chicken Inn forward Mitchell Katsvairo.
Their disappointing 2016 /17 campaign made it two successive seasons without a trophy for the countrya��s cup kings.
At the heart of that disappointment has been the cluba��s signing policy and it has come under scrutiny.
Chiefsa�� boss Kaizer Bobby Motaung even admitted that Amakhosi erred in some of the signings they made.
Amakhosi are home to ex-Gamecocks, Highlanders and Bantu Rovers defender Teenage Hadebe who commands a first team jersey.
Warriors duo of Kudakwashe a�?Nkembea�? Mahachi and Danny a�?Decoa�? Phiri, who turn out for Golden Arrows are sidelined by injuries while their fellow countrymen Knox Mutizwa and Thomas Chideu command starting places at Abafana Besithende.
a�?Ia��m just keeping my fingers crossed as I look forward to bounce back into action soon,a�? said Phiri who suffered an Achilles injury in September last year.
The 28-year-old, who featured in 24 Premiership games in his first season in Durban in 2016 /17, has reportedly already undergone surgery in an attempt to fix the problem and has begun his period of rehabilitation.
Arrows coach Clinton Larsen recently said: a�?He suffered an Achilles tendon (injury). It happened in training. He was just about to run and take off and he pulled his Achilles tendon. These things happen. Ita��s part of the game.
Normally, it could be six to eight months (out). It just depends on the player, depends on the recovery, depends on how the operation is done.a�?
