I was disappointed when I didn’t join Amakhosi earlier, but I told myself that one day I will play for Chiefs.”
Manqele played under coach Komphela at Free State Stars during the 2011/12 season. He reacted as follows about the new signing: “I think that, first of all, we have to compliment the Chiefs management. We are trying to present the best ever product for Amakhosi supporters, that’s also why we strengthened our striking position. Maybe Edward is here to dust the contract he was supposed to have with Chiefs back in 2012.”
He netted 11 times in that 2011/2012.
Manqele will don jersey number 22. “I just hope to score goals and be a team player as well as help others in the team to score,” concludes a visibly excited striker.
