Ekstein Can't Replace Yeye

Following a 2-1 defeat to Bidvest Wits, Amakhosi proved that, going forward, they lack a playmaker. They have failed to replace Reneilwe Letsholonyane, who was invincible in the final third.

Truth be told, ‘Pule’ Ekstein's engine won't win Chiefs any trophies. He may have played well in preseason matches, but there are doubts that he will do so in official matches, as we saw him struggle to make passes yesterday. A playmaker needs to be more untouchable, and give hope to the other players who lack confidence. But 'Pule' himself lacks self-confidence, so how can he win matches?

This will alert Bobby and show that there are no shortcuts in football. In other words, he is supposed to buy a prominent playmaker like Siphelele Ntshangase or May Mahlangu to try and resolve the problem. Maluleka and Ekstein lack character, and that may end up being the coach’s problem, while we know very well that Chiefs weren't even bothered to sign quality players.

Do you think Ekstein is mature enough to lead the Chiefs midfield? Who do you think he can be the solution between May Mahlangu and Siphelele Ntshangase?
