Maluleka Would Like To Be More Attacking: It’s The Coach’s Decision

George Maluleka Would Prefer To Be More Attacking At Kaizer Chiefs

By Soccer Laduma - Dec 14, 2017 08:29 PM

George Maluleka has admitted that he would like to be playing in a more attacking position for Kaizer Chiefs, but is happy to play the role that Steve Komphela has given him.

The midfielder has been one of Chiefs’ most regular players this season as the Amakhosi keep up their hopes of challenging for the Absa Premiership title, although he has often been utilised in a more defensive role.

On Saturday, in Chiefs’ last game of the year, the 28-year-old will come up against his former employers, Ajax Cape Town, where he played as an attacking-minded midfielder under Foppe de Haan.

He admitted to Chiefs’ official website, “I like to play a little bit more forward as I have, in my present position, less opportunities to attack, however it’s the coach’s decision. Besides that, I am enjoying this role as well.”

But Maluleka is eager to keep up his form in KwaZulu Natal, with his only two goals this season having been scored there at Moses Mabhida Stadium.

He said, “The Ajax Cape Town match is our last in 2017… Supporters usually attend our home games in Durban in great numbers. If that happens again on Saturday, we will reward them – we want to make our fans happy… I love to play in Durban. I also scored both my goals there this season.

“Durban is usually a good hunting ground for us. Ajax won’t be an easy opponent, but we are ready. We are in the thick of things when it comes to the log, being in third position and we definitely look at finishing the year on a high note.”

On the topic of facing Ajax, a club with whom he spent some successful years, ‘Mido’ says that he’s looking forward to it.

He said, “I had a good time with them and I revived my career at Ajax under coach Foppe de Haan. That’s why the club will always be close to my heart.”

The clash with Ajax is due to get underway at Moses Mabhida Stadium at 20h15.

@Dave1992 Correct,and the problem with this coaching approach is that the players feel the coach has no faith in them.

Steve Komphela is more worried about losing rather than proactively trying to win matches..Kgoloko Thobejane is way better than him truth be told

Yerrrrrr, if the coach is giving you the role to hold then what should be Katsande's role? How can we play with 2 holding mids? No wonder Paez is running headless upfront coz no one is feeding him killer passes... And we wonder why so many losses and draws... Mxm clueless coach

Attacking Mid, Dats Gud, I Like That Spirit... This poi can do things easier for our strikers and our opponents will focus on him and forgetting that there are other players in the field of play. Take a game to your opponents if you still want to continue winning rather than waiting and defending something you don't have. Go Boys and Make us Proud

@morinho, very correct, lately, fau have been defending well, as you correctly mentioned, they are not winning games. The problem is complex. Prof Komphela is unable to balance the two, i.e, defending well while scoring goals to win games. I think he is not entirely at fault, in my view, he doesn't have quality at his disposal to execute his duties to a maximum level.
