Kaizer Chiefs sends four players to train with Fulham

Chiefs confirmed that part of the quartet’s trip is to build relationships with more teams in England

Kaizer Chiefs have announced that four of their first team players in Lorenzo Gordinho, Emmanuel Letlotlo, Siyabonga Ngezana and Ryan Moon will spend some time with English Championship side Fulham FC.

The quartet left South Africa on Monday to start training with Fulham, the club confirmed.

Football manager Bobby Motaung said sending the four players to England was part of the development plan to expose their players to advanced European set-ups.

“This is part of the development plan to expose our players in the advanced European set-ups,” Motaung told the Amakhosi website.

“Part of the trip is to explore future possibilities and forge ties with other clubs. It is important for benchmarking and exchange programs to do so,” said Motaung.

“For the youngsters, this is a lifetime opportunity to have a look and feel of the European set-up. We are confident that they will return with a broader view and mindset, which will contribute massively in their growth and development path,” he concluded.

Gordinho, Letlotlo and Ngezana came through Amakhosi’s youth structures, while Moon was recruited from Martizburg United at the beginning of the season.

Chiefs didn’t reveal the length of the quartet’s trip, but the four youngsters are expected to be back in the country before the league resumes in February.
