Cape Town - Steve Komphela believes that the foreign contingent of Edmore Chirambadare, Mitchell Katsvairo and Lewis Macha will deliver the goods at Kaizer Chiefs.

Komphela added Zimbabwean attacking midfielders Chirambadare and Katsvairo, in addition to Zambian forward Macha to the current Amakhosi roster, following their arrivals during the off-season transfer window.

"They have only played two matches. One would have hoped that they would be given a bit of a chance," Komphela told Mzansi Football.

Much is expected of Chiefs' new acquisitions, especially Macha - who netted in the 2-0 victory against arch-rivals Orlando Pirates in the 2016 Carling Black Label Champion Cup.

"Adaptation is not easy for foreign players. The culture and the way of playing the game is very different here," added the coach.

"From a technical point of view, in terms of their finishing, their technique, it's tops. I think strikers are born with that natural instinct, but it takes time."
