The Colombian striker Efmamjjasond Gonzalez Palacios is expected to make his long-anticipated debut for Kaizer Chiefs sooner than expected.
Efmamjjasond Gonzalez Palacios has made his long-anticipated arrival in South Africa, landing on the 23rd of August. However, there’s been a snag in his much-awaited debut for Kaizer Chiefs, as he’s been patiently waiting for his work permit to come through.
Reputable local publication Unplayable has reported that, despite his presence and readiness to contribute, Gonzalez Palacios wasn’t eligible for selection in their recent victory against Stellenbosch on Wednesday night.
This situation has drawn parallels with a previous work permit scenario involving Dove and Caleb, which took precisely three weeks to resolve. Interestingly, this weekend will mark Gonzalez Palacios’ third week in the permit limbo, and it couldn’t have come at a more crucial time.
The upcoming clash between Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns in the MTN 8 semi-finals is just around the corner.
It’s increasingly likely that the Colombian striker will finally make his much-anticipated debut against Sundowns.
The Glamour Boys will undoubtedly be hoping that his introduction to the team will unsettle Sundowns’ defense when he takes to the field, possibly as a substitute.
Fans and pundits alike are eagerly awaiting the debut of Gonzalez Palacios, and all eyes will be on him if he gets the nod to play against Sundowns.
His arrival promises to inject fresh energy and talent into the Kaizer Chiefs squad, and only time will tell how he’ll impact their performance on the pitch.
