Now in what has been a protracted transfer saga involving the two Soweto giants, Chiefs have finally beaten Pirates to the signature of Chivaviro. After a stellar season which saw him score 17 goals in all competitions for the now relegated side, Chivaviro was initially linked with a move to Amakhosi, before that quietened down and it was then Sea Robbers who were starting to make ground on getting his signature towards the end of the season.
