Former Kaizer Chiefs defender Fabian McCarthy reckons former Bidvest Wits left-back Sifiso Hlanti will fit in well at Amakhosi.

Chiefs confirmed that Hlanti has started training with them, as they await the go-ahead from FIFA to start signing players again.

The 30-year-old South African international is currently a free agent after the sale of Wits to Tshakhuma Tsha Madzhivhandila.

“I think he’s one of the best left-backs in the country right now, but it also depends on what the club wants and if he is available,” McCarthy told Goal.

“I think the advantage at this moment is that the coach knows him very well. There are no doubts he will add something to the team.

“Definitely, there is a perfect opportunity for the club to sign him as he is not attached. I believe he will fit in very well at the club.

“He’s a disciplined individual, on and off the field, he has done well, and he is one of the most experienced players. He plays for Bafana and he can add value at Chiefs – there’s no doubt about that.”
