With the second half of the Absa Premiership now in full swing, there are many players expected to prove themselves.
Today the Fan Park crew will take a look at four players who could confirm their authenticity as stars of the Premier Soccer League in the second half of the season.
David Zulu – Kaizer Chiefs
Having arrived at Naturena last month from Chippa United, Zulu will have the opportunity to write his name in Chiefs folklore - as it is the first high profile move in his career. It remains to be seen what impact he will have at the club, as he now has to compete with many proven footballers.
Tshepo Gumede – Orlando Pirates
As Bucs were looking to strengthen their quality in depth, they signed Gumede from Platinum Stars in the January transfer window. Also, with Siyabonga Sangweni and Rooi Mahamutsa to compete with, the second half of the season is sure to prove whether Gumede is Pirates material or not.
Bongani Zungu – Mamelodi Sundowns
Ben 10 is one of the rising talents in South African football, and competing at Chloorkop for a spot in the team is no easy task. However, he may ultimately smear his name all over the local scene in the new deep lying playmaker role that he was assigned to.
Ayabulela Magqwaka – SuperSport United
Signed by SuperSport United last month from Ajax Cape Town, the U20 South Africa international may feel that he needs to prove his worth, after being suspended by the Urban Warriors for comments in a Soccer Laduma interview and other grievances last year. The talented centre-back has been out of action for quite some time now, however, with Matsatsantsa throwing a rope for him, he now has the chance to prove his worth.
Who else do you think will burst onto the scene in the second half of the season?
