You wouldn't believe it if I told you but the re-born and on-fire Mandla Masango has better numbers than some top established wide midfielders in 2014/15. Three goals in three games has got our pulses racing!
Masango is averaging a superb 85% passer rating – an indication he’s using the ball extremely well in the tight wide areas. The likes of Daine Klate, Khama Billiat and Siphiwe Tshabalala only average 83%.
The ‘Bullet’ also eclipses his big name rivals in the shooting department as well – the lightning right winger is attempting four shots-a-game. This is above Billiat and Tshabalala who averaged just under three shots per game last season.
Our hot-shot on the right also has an unbelievable shooting accuracy of 67%. The league average for wide midfielders is normally just above 30% in the same category.
All these stats provide conclusive proof that that Masango is in the form of his life for the Glamour Boys, and this will come as a huge boost as our beloved club are currently missing key performers like Bernard Parker, Tshabalala as well as the returning Knowledge Musona.
Big ups to the Speeding Bullet - keep on killing them boy!
