New signing Caleb Bimenyimana has expressed his delight at securing his dream move to Kaizer Chiefs.
The lanky Burundian striker, who joined Amakhosi on a free transfer, made his debut as a substitute when Chiefs drew 0-0 against AmaZulu last weekend.
“I knew of Kaizer Chiefs before. It was my dream to play here because you had Valery Nahayo, the defender, who was captain of our national team so when, at training, I saw videos of him at Chiefs I said I want to go play in those full stadiums,” Bimenyimana told the Chiefs website.
“I was excited to find out I’d be in the squad (for the AmaZulu game) and when I got to the game I could see how excited the fans were to see me. It made me feel good about the Club and its supporters,” he said. “Together with all the staff I hope we can do something good like we said during the camp.
“There was a lot of excitement from my family and the fans so on the way to the stadium I was just focused on wanting to bring something more to the team to help us win the game, but we were unlucky, somehow.”
Bimenyimana will be oping to get his first start for Chiefs when Amakhosi play Marumo Gallants in a DStv Premiership clash at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium on Sunday.
