  • Salim Magoola has impressed, attracting interest from Premier Soccer League giants, Kaizer Chiefs
  • The goalkeeper, however, made a costly error that saw Richards Bay crash out of the Nedbank Cup
  • Magoola went off his line against SuperSport United, who went on the counter to seal a 3-1 victory

Rumoured Kaizer Chiefs target, Salim Magoola, made a costly mistake in Richards Bay's 3-1 loss to SuperSport United in the Nedbank Cup.

The goalkeeper was not at his best during the encounter and has received a stern warning from his manager as a result.

Magoola's side were trailing 2-1 and as they chased the equaliser, the Natal Rich Boys keeper rushed forward when his side won a corner.

He was made to pay dearly for his attempt when SuperSport went on the counter to make it 3-1.

Coach, Vusumuzi Vilakazi, was captured venting his frustration on the sidelines as he demanded a better performance from the Ugandan international.

The tactician said, via The South African:

"This must be a lesson for him. I’ve had one where someone, I’m not going to mention the name and he said this thing does happen but once in a while. So, if he took a decision today, he must just make sure that next time he doesn’t [make] the very same mistake.
"Even as coaches sometimes we make decisions where we put a defender in front when it’s the last minutes of the game because you are hoping for something. So, I think it’s a decision that he took, he must just learn from it," Vilakazi added.

Despite Magoola's error, Kaizer Chiefs are reportedly still on the trail of the player as Cavin Johnson hopes to bolster his squad ahead of the coming season.

Nkuna denies possible Kaizer Chiefs takeover

Sports Brief also reported that after splashing R500 million on new players, fans have urged Mike Nkuna to take over Kaizer Chiefs from the Motaung family.

It has been nine years since the Glamour Boys last won a title and the club's fervent supporters are calling for an overhauling at the management level.

At the moment, four of Kaizer Motaung's children hold key positions at the highest levels of Kaizer Chiefs, with Bobby currently the club's football manager.
