As a loyal and long Khosi supporter I pride myself in understanding all the strengths and qualities that players bring to our beloved club Kaizer Chiefs.
The two players I would like to compare,with your help my fellow Khosi followers are two exciting midfielders in George Lebese and Matthew Rusike. There is no doubt that both these players provide Chiefs with the fantasy element that only skilful players can produce.
So let’s begin the comparison starting with Lebese, what does he bring to the Amakhosi that is unique? Lebese is the more creative of the two, meaning he has more versatility in his game which allows him to play through the centre as well. Another positive is, Lebese is also the better passer of the football making him a an ideal distributor.
Now let’s divert our focus on Rusike. The Zimbabwean is definitely the more direct of the two players. The edge Rusike has over Lebese is, he possesses more explosiveness and power, and that’s the foundation of his game. Matthew also possesses speed and energy making him the more classic winger out the two. Aerially the points will have to go to Rusike as his physical stature allows him to compete in the air.
So who wins the verdict? Currently the only reason why Lebese would win this challenge is because he has enjoyed more game time and therefore is slightly sharper, but personally I would go for Rusike. Who do you vote for?
