Kaizer Chiefs pushing for Anthony Akumu's debut this weekend

After officially joining the club this week, Kaizer Chiefs are pushing for Anthony 'Teddy' Akumu's paperwork to be ready in time for their away fixture against Black Leopards.

The former Gor Mahia midfielder became the first Kenyan to join Chiefs, signing a three-and-a-half-year deal from Zambian outfit Zesco United.

Akumu was signed as a replacement for Ghanaian star James Kotei, who failed to live up to expectations at the Glamour Boys following his move from Simba.

In an interview with KickOff, Chiefs Communications manager, Vina Maphosa revealed that they are pushing for Akumu's paperwork to be ready before facing Leopards.

"If he's playing we will know today. If he doesn't play, what we are confirming is that he's a Kaizer Chiefs player, he's right with the club.

"As for playing, we will not even tell you if Khama Billiat will play. We will not even tell you if Itumeleng Khune will play. So we don't inform anybody about who's going to play until we finish all our preparations.

"So it's neither here nor there at the moment. Yes, he has arrived, he's playing for Kaizer Chiefs, and the process of finalizing the paperwork is ongoing as well. The paperwork hadn't finished yesterday at the office.

"So it's a process that is undergoing, so if it's finished today the coach will still have to decide whether he plays or not, so my answer to you about playing is we will not tell if he's going to play."
