'Maluleka's Position At Chiefs Is Big Shoes To Fill'

A former Kaizer Chiefs player has commented on how the team should move on after the departure of George ‘Mido’ Maluleka to Mamelodi Sundowns.

Maluleka has been hard at work with the Brazilians as coach Pitso Mosimane and the team prepare for the resumption of the 2019/20 season. The 31-year-old midfielder is not eligible to play for the Chloorkop outfit just yet, as he can only be registered after the transfer window has officially opened.

Speaking to the Siya crew, former Chiefs defender Tlou ‘Spanner’ Molekwane has given his views on the way forward for the Soweto giants after Maluleka’s exit.

“Players come and go and I am one person who doesn’t believe that a team is a one-man show. The coach believes in all the players he has. Obviously, Mido is a very good payer – quality! I don’t take anything away from him. He had an opportunity where he had to decide on where he wanted to be and Sundowns is where he wanted to be. It’s not good to lose such a quality player but life has to go on for the club and for him as a player at Sundowns,” said Molekwane.

“Whoever is going to take George’s position at Chiefs has big shoes to fill and he should be ready for the challenge. I believe they have such players at Chiefs and they can’t say they relied only on George. I believe that at big teams if you take one player out, the next one should be able to get in and maintain the standard. There mustn’t be a big difference between the players sharing the same position,” added the former defender.
