With the 2013 edition of the Carling Black Label Cup just around the corner, Soccer-Laduma takes a closer look at the players you can vote for to represent your team in the competition.
Everyday leading up to the big game on 27 July, Soccer-Laduma will be profiling one Orlando Pirates player and one Kaizer Chiefs player daily, with career backgrounds on display so you can make your voting choice.
Soccer-Laduma will also be running user polls to gauge the popularity of the players profiled every week.
Orlando Pirates Profile:
Name: Thandani Ntshumayelo
Team: Orlando Pirates
CBL last Year: N/A
2012/2013 PSL Stats: Played 11, Scored 1
Thandani Ntshumayelo’s inclusion in the Bafana Bafana squad is confirmation that the player has fully recovered from the injuries that troubled him last season.
The Orlando Pirates midfielder will hope to get game time in Gordon Igesund’s side for a chance to convince fans to include him in the starting 11 in this year’s Carling Black Label Cup, while helping the national team to qualify for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
Ntshumayelo missed out in last year’s competition. The 23-year-old needs more votes to stand a chance to be in this year’s team, as he is currently not in the starting 11.
Ntshumayelo’s big game temperament and ability to attack and defend on the field could boost his chances for inclusion in the team for the game on July 27.
