‘Shuffle’ Offers Hard Hitting Chiefs Assessment

Jabu Mahlangu was a Kaizer Chiefs player during the glory days, which have been scarce over the last four seasons.

But the former midfield maestro turned TV pundit has given a sobering, but yet hard hitting assessment, of the Glamour Boys as they look to end their trophy drought under coach Ernst Middendorp this season.

“We know Chiefs have been struggling for the past four years. But it is always fair to give them another opportunity because it’s a new season,” said Mahlangu, who was speaking to the Siya crew at the launch of the MTN8 this week.  

It’s a competition Amakhosi will be missing from when it kicks off next weekend having finished outside the Top Eight for the first time since 2007.

‘Shuffle’ said Amakhosi started strong with three points in their 3-2 win away to Highlands Park on Sunday, though there were plenty question marks.

“In the first game of the season, if Highlands Park were clever enough, they should have killed Chiefs,” argued Mahlangu.  

“In defence, (Erick) Mathoho and (Daniel) Cardoso were nowhere to be found, making a lot of mistakes. If they played SuperSport, Pirates or Sundowns they would have been hammered. But they got the crucial three points. I will judge them after eight or 10 games. Then we can say if they have a plan and if it is working out. Right now I just want to be realistic and give them a chance to fix things.”
