Alexander Proving He Is Chiefs Quality

There is no doubt that the Polokwane City number 11, Cole Alexander, surprised many this season. Yes at first it was quiet astonishing that he left home at Ajax Cape Town and joined a less popular team in Polokwane City.

The move was probably the best decision in his young career, because he even earned a Bafana Bafana call-up due to his rise in form. After shining for Polokwane City last night despite their 4-1 loss at the hands of newly crowned Absa Premiership champions Kaizer Chiefs, is he proving that he could make the cut at Naturena?

Yes, Alexander is doing that, and even though we may not need players in that central midfield position, Alexander may even be better than some of the current players at the club.

He looked lively, he made darting runs and his ability to hold the team together by dictating the tempo of the Rise and Shines game did not go unnoticed.

There was no Chiefs player on the night that could contain the playmaker, as he constantly found space to beat a man and get thunderous shots away. This is what the likes of Bernard Parker and George Maluleka have been tasked to do over this season.

Alexander also played with a mind-set like no other player on the Polokwane City team, because at 4-1 up he still felt the need to attack and this rubbed off on the rest of his teammates.

One of the most memorable moments of the game for Alexander was when he shuffled the ball in front of Reneilwe Letsholonyane and completely unbalanced Yeye, which created space to right. He then got the shot away only for goalkeeper Reyaad Pieterse to pull off a great save.

Alexander is Polokwane City’s Andres Iniesta, do you think he could become Chiefs' Iniesta?
