THE MOST INFLUENTIAL DEFENSIVE PAIR SINCE 2008 AT CHIEFS
It is very interesting to watch the games on Supersport that were played over a decade ago. And obviously, I spent a lot of time watching games involving my favourite team – Chiefs. The games televised so far are 2008 -2009 to the current season. I was wondering which central defensive pair was the most solid that is before the legends such as Mabedi, Hadebe, Tovey and others donned the black and gold. Some I took note of are Nahayo/Issacs, Rooi/ Nahayo, Mashamaite/ Mathoho, Mathoho/Cardoso. Great defenders! Gingerly, I choose, though I believe they are let down by the fullbacks who overlap and neglect their defensive duties in the process expose them and the midfield that tends to lose the ball rather cheaply, the current one.
