Amakhosi Leave Striker Unregistered
Camaldine Abraw will play no part for Kaizer Chiefs this season due to injury, with the Amakhosi deciding not to even register him with the league.
Abraw, 26, faces around eight more months on the sidelines after undergoing surgery on his knee, an injury that will see him only back in contention once again when the 2017/18 season gets underway.
After Willard Katsande managed to get his Permanent Residence Permit for South Africa, Chiefs have registered just the three foreigners for this season, leaving space for two more should they look to bolster their side at some stage.
Michelle Katsvairo, Edmore Chirambadare and Lewis Macha are the three players registered as foreigners for the Amakhosi this season, with Zimbabwe and Zambia the only two nationalities represented in their side this season.
While Abraw will no doubt be upset by the fact that he cannot play for nearly a year, he will take heart from the fact that he does have a long-term contract at Naturena and can work towards the next campaign.
