Kaizer Chiefs coach Komphela says the club has identified another striker who played at the recently concluded West African Football Union (Wafu) Nations Cup but declined to name the player.

However, according to Ghanasoccernet, the said player could either be Winnful Kwaku Cobbinah or Stephen Sarfo.

Chiefs may have to wait until January to sign either striker, as they are currently contracted to their respective teams.

Cobbinah is contracted to Accra Hearts of Oak, while Sarfo is on the books of Berekum Chelsea.

“There is one player within the best eleven players at Wafu and I wish I could mention his name but I know people will jump up and go and get him,” Komphela told the media.

“We are already on top of that. You got to be on top of your game and sometimes in football it is unfortunate that we cannot disclose everything.

“There are certain things that we do which we wish we could share with people, but you cannot share because you know how it is,” added the Chiefs coach.

“If you are selling fish and chips and you telling people that the best potato comes from Zuurbekom everybody will go and buy that potato from there.

“So you don’t tell them where the potato comes from but you keep telling them there are potatoes coming in for quality chips,” concluded Komphela.
