Mpho Makola: Coming Of Age (Part Two)

The reason people should predict this year to be Makola’s career taking off point, and him ascending, is because last season he showed that weird thing called character. A player who always shows for the ball and never stops battling.

Mental toughness is often underestimated and can’t often be seen by the fans, but in his case it has been displayed for all to see. Watching him manipulate space in the midfield with his off-the-ball movement is to appreciate a really subtle work of art.

Makola is also capable of playing with a lot of intensity. He seems to have an abundance of energy when running. He is constantly in movement, with or without the ball, almost never waiting for the ball to come to him or taking a breather. And he can keep it up for 90 minutes.

He has incredible vision of what goes around him on the pitch. He reads his teammates' movements and, on most occasions, he seems to pick the best pass, even in situations where he is in a very tight area with little time. But to praise him even more, he rarely gets himself into a situation where he can be rushed into a pass.

For all his good intelligence, quick thinking and vision, it would be useless if he didn’t have a good technical side to gain the maximum from those qualities and, luckily, he does have a very good technical side paired with good confidence.

Makola is on a very good level right now.
