Mahlangu: My Best Game For Chiefs!

Jabu Mahlangu has enjoyed many a sublime displays in a Kaizer Chiefs jersey and now ‘Shuffle’ has revealed what he feels was his best-ever match for Amakhosi.

Mahlangu spent five glorious years at Naturena, winning a host of trophies including the Vodacom Challenge, the BP Top Eight, the Coca-Cola Cup as well as the African Cup Winners' Cup in what was dubbed ‘Operation Vat Alles’ by then club PRO Putco Mafani. 

The fan favourite mesmerized opponents at will and a large faction of fans are of the opinion that Mahlangu’s best game in the famous gold and black was against Jomo Cosmos in the Coca Cola Cup final, where he netted a brace and was rightfully crowned Man of the Match; however, there is another match that stands out for Shuffle.

“Whenever I am out and about fans talk to me about that match against Cosmos. Although they remember the game well, I don’t think it was a defining game during my time at Chiefs – or my best performance,” Mahlangu told Chiefs’ official website.

“The Coca Cola Cup Final will always dominate, because I scored two goals and I was man of the match, but for me that game against Rangers will always be one of my best games.”

Instead, it was the match against legendary Clive Barkers Manning Rangers that truly stands out for the 41-year-old, where his brilliant individual performance sparked Chiefs back into life, coming from behind to win the match 3-1.

“For me the quarter-final in the 2001 Coca Cola Cup was my best game. We started out on the back foot. I had to take charge. Such was my style of play, if the team was down, God gave me the talent to rise to the occasion and lift the whole team up,” he added.
