Kaizer Chiefs’ Bhongolwethu Jayiya: I’m getting used to Chiefs’ style

Amakhosi’s attacker, Bhongolethu Jayiya, says he’s still conditioning his game to Chiefs’ different way of playing that is different from his past experience.

Jayiya, who joined Chiefs from Cape Town City FC in July 2017, is still struggling to find his feet at the club and has revealed that he is facing a different system of play.

Since joining the club at the start of last season, the speedy winger has only started a total of seven games.


“The main thing is Chiefs have got a different style of play that I’m getting used to, you know what I mean?” Jayiya said.

“I’m a person who likes to be on the line but now I have to play inside, play more as a number 10 and everything. So that is another interesting fact that I need to bring to my game, which is coming [along] very nicely. As time goes, it’s going to keep on going [better].”

Asked if he fancied a loan move to acquire more minutes on the field, he said:

“It is still early for loans, I still want to push myself in this club and do my best.”

The Johannesburg-born player, who is also a qualified Accountant, faces tough competition for playing as Chiefs has plenty of attacking options. Jayiya competes with the likes of Lebogang Manyama, Hendrick Ekstein, Kabelo Mahlasela, Khama Billiat and Gustavo Paez.

Chiefs coach, Giovanni Solinas could be inspired to play Jayiya when Amakhosi battle the player’s former employers Cape Town City FC on Saturday, 15 September 2018.
