Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela is excited about the potential of his new strike-force ahead of next campaign.

In his first season with Amakhosi, Komphela ended without any silverware due to the team's inefficiency in front of goal, and a proven goal-scorer was highlighted as a priority during their squad overhaul.

Their highest scoring striker in their faltering campaign was Togo international Camaldine Abraw, who found the back of the net four times in a 20 Premiership appearances.

With Abraw ruled out for nine months, the club's four new strikers Edmore Chirambadare, Michelle Katsvairo, Lewis Macha and Emmanuel Letlotlo will fight for a place in Komphela's traditional 4-4-2 system - something which excites the former Maritzburg United boss.

"We cast our eyes far and wide to ensure we brought the kind of players we believe will quickly adjust to our style of play. We truly believe in Lewis' talent," Komphela told the Sowetan Live.

"The players we have announced are very exciting. There are a number of changes in the team. We have to get the chemistry quickly so that we can get results.

"We are happy with the quality the new attackers will add to the team in the coming season. We will get to see them during pre-season."
