Chiefs Found A Rough Diamond In Wiseman - Reader’s Voice
The inclusion of MDC or development players will come handy to Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphlela only if he is brave enough to play them.
The performance of Meyiwa proved vital for Chiefs, the young man had to put his body on the line on a number of occasions to block Cape Town City players from taking long range shots. The display was further complimented by a second half goal that sealed the victory for Kaizer Chiefs.
The belief that Komphela had on Wiseman should now be extended to the MDC midfielder maestro, jersey number 12, Ngcobo. The young man is far better than George Maluleka, Chirambadare, and Buchanan.
Steve has enough players to succeed only if he puts trust on the youngsters, there is also Zuma, Moon, Letlotlo, Hadebe, Malope and Ekstein. Although the coach believes bravery can render you stupid, at times it pays and now he has been paid for his bravery to play Meyiwa.
Taking a leaf from the tactics of Mushin, Ted and De Haan former Ajax coach, Komphela can build a strong team. The character to play young players can only be found in a man who does not think about himself rather the man who can think about giving back to the game itself.
Wiseman Meyiwa has paved the way for young Chiefs players to fight hard and put more pressure on the club to play them. It is only in the interest of the game and the team itself.
Be brave, the future looks bright with youngsters, not Parker, Maluleka, Chirambadare and other self-proclaimed superstars.
