Jabu: Lebese Plays Like A Remote Control

Kaizer Chiefs legend, Jabu Mahlangu, believes that attacking midfielder, George Lebese, needs to be given more freedom on the field.

The 26-year-old scored more goals in the 2014/15 season (seven) than he has in any of his previous PSL campaigns, proving himself to be a vital cog in the Chiefs machine that romped to the PSL title last season.

Speaking ahead of the CBL Cup this Saturday, Mahlangu believes that the Amakhosi fans are yet to see the best of Lebese and that his attacking talent is being restricted.

“George Lebese needs to be given freedom. He has that flair and skill to win games and take responsibility. Unfortunately, the coaches who worked with him in the last few years maybe didn’t see it properly,“ Mahlangu told Soccer Laduma.

“There was no one who said, “George, you can be the playmaker of Chiefs. You’ve got that talent!” He has that extra gear.”

“He is someone who is supposed to be like Jabu Pule! But he plays like a remote control with one two touch passing because of his previous coaches. When George is in space he always creates something for the fans. Remember, football is entertainment,” he added.
