Parker, Zulu And Yeye – Chiefs' No.10 Conundrum

Kaizer Chiefs may have a dilemma when it comes to their number nines, with the likes of Siphelele Mthembu, Katlego Mphela, Bernard Parker and David Zulu all in line to spearhead the Chiefs attack. Just behind the hit men lies another dilemma, so to say.

Today the Fan Park crew will take a look at Chiefs' number 10 selection headaches and how coach Stuart Baxter could address this issue.

Yeye has been used predominantly as a number 10 this season, to great effect. Currently Chiefs' top goal scorer in the Absa Premiership, Baxter may pen Yeye back into a much deeper role following Barnard Parker’s return to form, and David Zulu arriving at the club.

David Zulu

Zulu is a striker who could play alone upfront or just behind a number nine, this because of his creativity and ability to pick a pass. Zulu and Parker may fight for this positio,n unless of course Baxter decided to use one of them as a lone striker.

 Bernard Parker

Parker is Chiefs first choice playmaker in this position, however, his eye for goal often gets him the nod as a lone striker. As a player who thrives on the half turn, Hond is able turn defences inside and out, as well as get into the box - but there is no denying that his eye for the pass is also second to none.

Having said that, who do you think Baxter should utilise as a number 10?
