Versatile Amakhosi Defender’s Vow: ‘Put Me Anywhere!’

Daniel Cardoso has played centre back, defensive midfield, left back and right back during his time with Kaizer Chiefs and Free State Stars, and he’s not letting the pressure get to him.
 
 
The 29-year-old, who was dropped for the MTN8 semi-final defeat to SuperSport United, has come under fire this season as the Amakhosi continue their search for a first league victory, and he will now be using the international break to try and get himself back on track in Giovanni Solinas’ plans. Maybe he could be used in a different position?
 
According to transfermarkt.com, in 127 matches across the Absa Premiership, MTN8, Telkom Knockout and Nedbank Cup, Cardoso has played 110 games as a CB, 13 as a LB, two as a RB and once as a DM. He’s played in all four positions at least once during his time at Naturena.
 
Despite a handful of errors, which have cost his team points, the defender is doing relatively well in the duels department on the field, winning 71.4% of all his duels so far – aerial and ground – a percentage only bettered by six players in the league.
 
Speaking in this week’s issue of Soccer Laduma, the former Ea Lla Koto star said, “Put me anywhere on the field and I will do the job. You can put me at left back, right back, centre-back or central midfield and I will always try to do my best to help the team. This game is my bread and butter, this puts a roof over my head and I don’t want to let anyone down.”
