Kaizer Chiefs coach Arthur Zwane was full of praise for striker Caleb Bimenyimana who netted a hat-trick against Stellenbosch FC on Sunday.
The Burundian striker scored three times from the penalty spot to help Amakhosi come back from a goal down to claim a 3-1 win over Stellies in Cape Town. By doing so, Bimenyimana became the first player to score a hat-trick from penalties in the Premier Soccer League.
“He simplifies things, you know, he keeps it simple as a striker, he just wants to play the ball outward, he wants to protect the ball, he wants to play those one-twos,” Zwane old SuperSport after the game.
“He is a tall boy and he’s quick for his frame and he’s got that balance as well. We always wanted a player that can release players like Ashley du Preez.
“He’s not just the striker that is waiting for the crosses. You know, we are not a team that will rely on high balls. We are a team that will want to penetrate through the middle,” added Zwane.
“I’m so happy for him and I’m very, very proud of him. He’s improving because he is coachable. He’s one player who always, you know, want to learn new things. He wants to know, ‘Coach, am I doing the right thing?’ You can see, his game is improving and he’s one of our key players for this season,” concluded the Chiefs coach.
Chiefs will next face Chippa United at home on Saturday and Zwane will be looking for Bimenyimana to continue his scoring form and help his team win their fourth match in a row.
