As avid readers and supporters of Soccer Laduma, we've surely all been following the Team of the Season voting both in the paper and on the website.
As a passionate Kaizer Chiefs fan myself, it came as a surprise to see Tefu Mashamaite being so closely followed in the voting by Thulani Hlatshwayo.
Who are we kidding here?
Mashamaite plays for a team that are number one in the PSL. He is a regular in the backline of a side that is involved in continental African competition as well. Virtually every week he faces teams who treat the occasion as a cup final.
In other words, the pressure he's under is immense and yet he still delivers to a very high level. Factor in that Tefu is up against high calibre performers like Morgan Gould and Eric Mathoho, and it's easy to see why he should be miles ahead of Hlatshwayo in the voting.
Don't get it wrong, Tyson is a good player. But he plays for a small team away from the glare of the big spotlight. Ajax Cape Town are also having a poor season as well - 12th in the standings tells its own story.
So, Chiefs fans, let's put things right and start voting for Tefu. It's because the evidence is obvious - Mashamaite v Hlatshwayo - who'll win? Hands down, it's Tefu!
