Mphela – Former Killer?

There was all sorts of hype surrounding Katlego Mphela when he finally secured his move to Kaizer Chiefs, but has anyone been impressed just yet?

‘Killer’ has featured in five league games for us since his move and has played 127 minutes of football. He is yet to register his first goal and looked massively out of sorts in the game against lower league opposition, FC Buffalo, too.

Mphela’s best performance up until now was the 2-0 win over Ajax Cape Town in which he played a role in both goals, grabbing a direct assist along the way. However, other than that you’d be pushed to build a highlight reel for him at Naturena.

The striker’s ability is not in question. It’s just a matter of whether he will be able to find his feet again soon, or whether he’s too far gone.

Spending a full pre-season with Coach Baxter and his technical team will hopefully have a massive effect on him and help him get down to his target weight as well as increasing his sharpness, though it is going to take a lot of hard work from him.

Do you think Killer can get back to his best at Chiefs?
