Chabangu - All He Needs Is Love

In a league where football fans are not spread somewhat evenly across teams, as is the case in the leagues abroad, but are rather concentrated on the 'Big Three', it is easy to lose focus on other teams' virtues.

Much clamour has been made about players from the big three since the league commenced. Your Majoros, Masangos, and Tekos of this world.

This, however, serves to diminish the contributions of players from other teams. Lerato Chabangu is one such player. After scoring winners against Orlando Pirates & Amazulu, albeit coming off the bench, no one took time and effort to extrapolate on the player's progress this season. As has been done with 'big three' players.

'All You Need Is Love', as the Moroka Swallows player is fondly known around football circles, is now on four goals this season, after his brace on Tuesday night, which ensured the Dube Birds edged Polokwane City out, in a 3-2 victory.

A complete player, Chabangu can fill in multiple positions with aplomb. His intelligence on and off the ball, his street-wise skill and style of play encapsulates a typical Mzansi footballer who is in touch with his identity.

The 29-year old is also a constant threat in front of goal, clinical tap-ins, headers, long range efforts, and dead-balls, are all within his capabilities.

It is without doubt the Tembisa-born ace, who is bound to have another stellar season, is greatly valued by coach Zeca Marques and the Moroka Swallows team, but is he by Mzansi?
