Turn Maluleka Into A Striker

Kaizer Chiefs are having a battle with themselves in trying to find the clinical finisher that they can rely on when it comes to goals. The current strikers not really convincing and Amakhosi are busy trying to find that suitable player who can lead the team forward.

With Amakhosi having a dry run of goals, this means a clinical finisher is what they require now, and looking at the current squad of players George Maluleka comes to mind. He has got power and his accuracy is good as he is also good on free kicks. This is a kind of player who only thinks about shooting when in the 18 area, and finishing is what comes to mind when he sees the ball and the goalkeeper.

Many might question this, but we’ve seen a lot of players being converted to different positions after certain attributes were discovered in their careers, like Gareth Bale who started as a Fullback but ended up being a striker, Javier Mascherano went from being a defensive midfielder to play as a centre back and Jordi Alba started as an attacker, before going on to be a full back. Maybe the time is now for Maluleka to start playing as a forward and bring Parker into the Midfield, as he is more creative in his playing style.

Do you think Maluleka should play as a striker and Parker should start playing in the midfield?
