PSL's Top Left-Backs Report Card

Recently, the local football family has been blessed with some of the best left-back the league has ever seen. Today the Fan Park crew will list some of the best left-backs in the country and give them a grading out of five, based on their performances.

Tsepo Masilela

Rating: 5/5

Masilela has not set a foot wrong this season and has been head and shoulders above the rest over any left-back in the country.

Patrick Phungwayo

Rating: 4/5

Phungwayo’s solid performances this season has led to the Orlando Pirates star man being called up by coach Shakes Mashaba for the national team. Being linked with Mamelodi Sundowns the last couple of months surely means he is hot property at the moment.

Thabo Matlaba

Rating: 3/5

We have not seen much of Matlaba this season as he had been struggling with injury for most of the campaign. We do know that he is a seasoned campaigner already, and when called upon he has been reliable.

Sibusiso Khumalo

Rating: 4/5

The strong and marauding left-back has been superb for SuperSport United this season, earning him a well-deserved Bafana Bafana call-up. He has no doubt been one of the best left-backs in the league, probably second behind Masilela.

What other left-backs do you think deserve a mentioned?
