Lebese On His Slow Chiefs Start

Kaizer Chiefs midfielder, George Lebese, talks about his slow start to life at Chiefs and why it took him a while to establish himself at the club.

The 26-year-old joined the Amakhosi from Arcadia Shepherds in 2008, but only really asserted his presence last season, - netting seven league goals and helping Chiefs win the league and cup double.

Many of the Amakhosi faithful wonder why it took Lebese nearly six seasons to find the kind of form his potential as a youngster clearly promised, and he has indicated that it was just a matter of the time being right.

“It wasn’t my time yet. When my time came and the coach gave me the chance, I played my game and my teammates helped me achieve what I have. When the time is right, everything falls in place,” Lebese told Soccer Laduma.

Lebese was unable to help Chiefs lift the MTN8 trophy, losing 1-0 to a determined Ajax Cape Town side in the final over the weekend. The Amakhosi will be looking to put that loss behind them when they play host to Tuks in the Absa Premiership on Wednesday, with proceedings scheduled to get underway at 19h30.
