Despite recent struggles in front of goal Kaizer Chiefs’ Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana remains the best striker in the DStv Premiership according to key statistics.
Bimenyimana has regularly frustrated Chiefs fans with his series of misses including a failed penalty attempt in Friday’s humiliating defeat to AmaZulu.
Despite his recent struggles in front of goal, Bimenyimana remains the deadliest striker in the DStv Premiership in terms of goals-to-minutes ratio.
The Burundian has scored seven league goals in 613 minutes played over nine appearances.
This means the lanky striker has averaged a goal in every 87 minutes that he has been on the pitch for Amakhosi.
The 25-year-old has played 90 minutes in the league just twice and in both games (Chippa United and Sekhukhune United) he didn’t score.
The Chiefs target man’s return for Chiefs means he has done better than everyone else in the league including Peter Shalulile and Bradley Grobler.
Sitting second behind Bimenyimana of all players with at least five goals in the league is Cassius Mailula.
His five goals have come in 466 minutes (seven appearances) of league football giving him an average of a goal in every 93 minutes.
Namibian hitman Peter Shalulile has scored a goal in every 120 minutes.
He has seven goals in 844 minutes spread over 10 league appearances.
Yet another Sundowns forward – Etiosa Ighodaro – who is currently out on loan at Chippa United follows behind in fourth with a goal in every 144 minutes.
He has five goals in 723 minutes spread over 12 appearances which have come with only one full shift.
Bradley Grobler’s seven goals have come in 1178 minutes of football across 15 league appearances giving an average of a goal in 168 minutes.
Stellenbosch kingpin Junior Mendieta has five goals to his name in 1256 minutes spread over 16 appearances.
This gives the Argentine a return of a goal in every 251 minutes that he plays.
