“Paez Has Turned Into Amakhosi’s Super Sub – Reader’s Voice

When Jose Torrealba first arrived in the country to play for Mamelodi Sundowns back in 2005, no one predicted how effective could he become.

When he adjusted and acclimatised well in the country's temperature, he became one of the most dangerous imports that the Absa Premiership has ever had, despite not scoring particularly much. he later joined Kaizer Chiefs and became an answer to their goal scoring problems and won the Amakhosi faithful’s hearts.

One can remember his dangerous combination with Gert Schalkwyk at the Naturena-based club, which is where he was really effective, rather than in his goalscoring figures. Now, almost 12 years down the line, his compatriot Gustavo Paez is in our league to remind us of the Venezuelan’s instinct in the final third. It's undeniable that the man is here to score goals and, it separates him from Torrealba, because he has the ability to do so.

With four goals to his name already, he has turned into Amakhosi’s super sub. he has pace, energy, technique and a great composure inside the box. For the first time under Steve Komphela, Chiefs have found a valuable signing and they're are very dangerous on attack.

He's also impressive with positional play and is not selfish with the ball as he can create chances. Playing him with the rejuvenated Bernard Parker upfront can hurt many opponents. Chiefs have to play Chippa United, Cape Town City, SuperSport United and Bidvest Wits, which will be a major test of their quality. This will be a good chance to see more of Paez’s qualities against the PSL’s best sides.

Will he will be chiefs goal provider?
