How Jele Upped His Game This Season

Silently going about his business for Orlando Pirates this season, Happy Jele has been one of our most consistent performers and can be deemed as one of the best defenders in the country at present.

Statistically, Magents has improved as the season developed and it is very much evident in the way he has been playing.

In the first 16 fixtures of the Premier Soccer League season, Jele made 40.5 passes per game whereas in the last nine fixtures, that tally has increased to 43.8 passes per game on average. This indicates that he has been more involved with play in terms making himself available.

Jele improved on his tackling as well, as in the first half of the season, Magents made 2.2 tackles per game and in the last nine fixtures, he managed 3.8 tackles on average per game.

He has also committed fewer fouls in recent times, with a rate of 1.1 fouls per game in the last nine fixtures, compared 1.5 made on average in the first 16 games of the season.

We also know that Jele loves to romp forward and make a nuisance of himself in the opposition area. Often linking up with Sifiso Myeni on the right flank, Jele has made 3.8 passes into the penalty area on average in the last nine fixtures, compared to only 2 passes into the box on average in the first half of the season.

Reflecting on the above mentioned statistics, we can see that Jele has been one of our best performers this season, and if he keeps going at this rate, he would be hard to ignore when I comes to national team selection.

Are you happy with Jele’s performances this season?
