A new STAR is born at Kaizer Chiefs!

Kaizer Chiefs left it late, but they’ve booked their place in this season’s MTN8 semi-finals. Fans are singing the praises of new boy Edson Castillo.

New Venezuelan midfielder Edson Castillo was on hand to snatch a dramatic late winner for the Glamour Boys in Athlone. It could be just the thing Molefi Ntseki needs to turn things around. Next up for Chiefs is a semi-final clash with Sundowns, which is a daunting proposition, but you need to beat the best to be the best.

Castillo steals the show

In a relatively indifferent campaign for Chiefs so far, Edson Castillo has been one of the bright sparks. A winner in an MTN8 quarter-final clash is the perfect way to properly announce himself on this stage, and he’ll no doubt be eager to produce more eye-catching displays. Aside from the goal, fans and pundits have been impressed by the calm, composed midfield play he’s brought to the party. Is he the long-term solution to their problems in the heart of the battle? At 29, he’s hardly a spring chicken, but there are surely at least a handful of years left in the tank at the highest level.
