Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela reveals that he has been following William Twala’s career since 2011.

Sport24 reported the signing of the winger which came as a surprise too many after Komphela clearly stated that Amakhosi would not be making any signings during the January transfer window.

According to Kaizer Chiefs website, Komphela says that the 25-year-olds addition would add some healthy competition to his side.

“It adds quality to our wingers,” Komphela said.

“His addition will create a healthy competition in the middle of the park. He has great qualities, speed and technical abilities are his trademarks.”

Twala also had a stint at FC AK in the National First Division and Komphela admits to first seeing the winger in South Africa’s lower tier competition.

“I started following him back in 2011 when he played for FC AK. We welcome him, but then this is Chiefs.

“It is important for him to get support, start well and hit the ground running. He will need to align with the Chiefs way.

“Hard work, humility and dedication will fit him perfectly in Chiefs culture.”

Twala penned a two year deal with the Glamour Boys.
