Masango An “Old” Youngster

Once upon a time a youngster by the name of Joseph 'Duku Duku' Makhanya burst into professional soccer playing for Pirates and tormenting defenders with blistering speed and trickery. Soon he was doing the same at international level for Amaglug-glug (our under 23 national side at the time). All of a sudden Makhanya was, for some reason, not favoured by the coaches and spent the bulk of his career as a bit part player for Pirates.

Sound familiar? This story should ring the alarm bells for one Mandla Masango. The Chiefs youngster  is heading in very much the same direction. Masango burst onto the professional ranks in a similar fashion as a fresh faced 18 year old mesmerising defenders with speed and trickery. Today he is nothing more than a bit part player for Chiefs at 24 years of age.

Should Masango leave Chiefs to revive his career elsewhere?
