If you've watched Katlego Mphela play for Kaizer Chiefs in recent times, you'll have noticed something very quickly.
He's picked up too much weight from all the time spent rotting on the sidelines at Mamelodi Sundowns. It's concerning because at the age of 29, he's not going to get any faster.
I'm as passionate a Chiefs supporters as they come, but to see 'Killer's' lack of speed in a recent cameo was distressing. How is he going to score goals if he is so out of shape?
Yes, we realize Chiefs haven't been training much because of all the games coming thick and fast. But, for goodness sake, surely Stuart Baxter must put him on a special training programme and diet.
We don't want 'Killer' consuming pies, hot chips and sweet fizzy drinks. We want him consuming salad, vegetables and cold water. We don't want 'Killer' dancing in nightclubs flashing the cash. We want 'Killer' doing sprints and long distance runs to burn off the fat.
It's like Shoes Moshoeu said the other day, if you can't run then you can't play! That's why it's so important that Mphela has a good pre-season before our next campaign.
He has to get back to the kind of body that once made him the deadliest striker in the country. It's is crucial because his belly is beginning to show through his skin-tight shirt.
Let's hope Baxter realizes this and sorts it out. For Amakhosi's sake, we hope he can get 'Killer' slimmer!
After all, we are playing a lot of money for his services. And, in this game, reputation counts for nothing.
