Mlambo made his second appearance for Bucs, as a substitute during the 2-0 win over Ajax Cape Town in the Nedbank Cup, on Saturday evening. 

The central midfielder’s first official match in Bucs’ colours, since his January move from Bidvest Wits, was against Maritzburg United in the league on February 03.

Following the win for Bucs against Ajax, Sredojevic likened Mlambo to Alonso – the retired Spaniard.

“Xola Mlambo is like Xabi Alonso. We have got a player who is going to add value to this team. And to think that he is still going to improve. We are privileged to have him,” the Serbian coach has been quoted as saying on Pirates’ official Twitter account.

Mlambo, 26, will be working on getting into Sredojevic’s starting line-ups at Bucs for their upcoming matches.

KHOSIVICHI........They talk about similarities in certain qualities and functionality of a player, not to say the amount of talent and quality is the same. As for Myessi, it was Messi fans being creative...I also heard some chiefs fans saying Komphela is like Pep (I assumed Pep the coach, and not Pep the low cheap quality clothing store)

Lol m not suprised, they started this idiotism long time ago. They had Casillas, Gattuso, even tried to change Myeni and call him Myessi and now this cow is like Xabi Alonso? Wow! Who's next? Maybe Ronaldo or Suarez.

but to compare to him to xabi no sir here is a style of xxabi alonso : he was a gifted with good technique, excellent vision, and varied passing range, he excels in the centre in a deep-lying playmaking role, where he can best use his accurate long passing ability to create goal scoring chances for teammates, he also possesses a powerful and accurate shot from distance, and he is an effective set-piece and penalty kick taker that is xabi alonso atleast compare him to Kekana
