Kaizer Chiefs new boy Adriamirado "Dax" Adrianarimanana recently received his clearance to play for the Glamour Boys, but where does the Madagascan fare in value compared to some of the other midfielders at Chiefs?
The long-named midfielder is currently valued at R2.5 million, according to Transfermarkt, which is a low figure in comparison to the most of the other Amakhosi midfielders.
The values of Chiefs central midfielders:
Siphelele Ntshangase – R4.2 million
The man who delivers the “champagne" passes, as dubbed by Chiefs fans, seems to have grown in stature at Naturena in recent times, and looks a proper fit in the current Chiefs midfield.
Hendrick Ekstein – R6.8 million
The diminutive midfielder is currently valued at R6.8 million, and is often first in line off the bench for coach Giovanni Solinas.
Willard Katsande – R12 million
As one of Chiefs' elder statesmen, "Salt 'n Vinegar" remains one of the higher valued midfielders in the league over the age of 30.
George Maluleka – R13.7 million
Amakhosi's most valuable midfielder currently, according to Transfermarkt, is "Mido", whose value has risen in the past couples of years after becoming a consistent feature for Chiefs.
In conclusion, Dax appears to be ranked considerably lower than his new counterparts. However, that could well change once he begins to puts in the minutes on the pitch.
Do you think Dax will be a hit at Naturena?
