Mashamaite – The Perfect Replacement For Schut?

With our captain, Alje Schut, having confirmed that he will be leaving Chloorkop at the end of the season, the search could be on to replace the influential Dutchman. He has been one of, if not the most important players at the club in the last two years and slotting in for Schut will, by no means, be an easy ask.

I believe we should only look to sign one of the best defenders in the country if we stand any chance of fully replacing our captain.

One of those players is indeed Kaizer Chiefs centre-back Tefu Mashamaite. Should we have a look at his contract situation at Naturena?

As it stands, he is yet to extend his deal at the club and the delay in putting pen to paper may be down to a combination of factors. One, he may not be satisfied with the amount of money being offered; and two, a move abroad could be slowing down the process.

At the age of 31, a move abroad might not be a benefit in this late stage in his career. Should he want more money, I’m pretty sure the big bosses at Mamelodi Sundowns can work something out in that regard, as we have been able to afford some of the most expensive players in the country.

Like Schut, Masha is a natural born leader and if Schut leaves, that quality will surely be missed in the team. So for that reason too, I feel Masha will be a perfect fit at Downs.

Do you think we should so our best to sign Mashamaite?
