Ex-Mamelodi Sundowns star Lungisani Ndlela says new Kaizer Chiefs striker Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana will present a problem for PSL defenders.

The lanky forward stands 1.94m tall and has been likened to Ndlela who used to bang in goals utilising his 1.98m height advantage during his playing days.

Bimenyimana and the other Kaizer Chiefs new signing Dove Edmilson are believed to have received their long-awaited work permits and might be available for selection when the Soweto giants take on AmaZulu on Saturday.

“I’m 1.98m tall, almost 2m, a full door,” Ndlela tells KickOff.

“Bimenyimana will be a big threat if he really uses his height to his advantage.

“Defenders are going to struggle against him during set-plays, even to the goalkeepers because sometimes they leave too much gap behind them.

“As long as he stays alert inside the box he will be difficult to stop, especially with players like Keagan Dolly supplying him.

“Dolly is very good at free-kicks.

“As long as he knows how to control his head during headers he is going to be a problem.

“He must also be a good jumper though they are going to push him, kick him and even insult him but he must remain focused.

“As a tall striker you don’t attack the first pole, you always target the last pole and the middle of the box.

“He must just set himself a target of two goals in every game.”

Amakhosi have been desperate for the out-and-out striker following the exits of Leonardo Castro and Samir Nurkovic in June.

The Burundian forward earned himself a contract after impressing during his three-week trial at Naturena and all eyes are on him as he carries a heavy yoke to solve Amakhosi’s goalscoring problems.
