Kaizer Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung believes Gordinho is ready to play for Amakhosi after spending one year on loan with Celtic.

Gordinho is a product of the Chiefs youth development and played 66 games for the Soweto giants’ first team before he was loaned out to Celtic.

The centre-back started training with Chiefs on Friday after the Premier Soccer League closed the curtains on 2018 and the first half of the 2018/2019 season.

“Lorenzo comes back at the right time,” Motaung told Chiefs’ website. “because we have a few injuries. He got a lot of game time at Bloemfontein Celtic and, because of that, gained a lot of experience.

“It was a well spend year and we also thank Celtic for giving him the opportunity to play. Lorenzo learnt a lot during the past 12 months, which will help him on his return to the club.”
