Chiefs Coach: The Problem With Manyama Is...

Giovanni Solinas has commented on Lebogang Manyama’s first performance for Kaizer Chiefs.

The 28-year-old joined up with the Soweto giants on August 22 this year, after his stint with Atiker Konyaspor in Turkey came to an end sooner than expected. 

The midfielder made his debut for Amakhosi on Saturday, where he assisted one of the goals that saw the Soweto giants clinch a 4-1 victory over Cape Town City.

Speaking to the media after the game, Head Coach Solinas revealed that the only problem with Manyama is his fitness level, however, is confident that the player will be very key in their attack once he is 100% fit.

“Lebo, it is the first game, the problem (with) Lebo is the fitness, he’s come to Kaizer Chiefs with no pre-season, we started the job with the fitness coach to get the fitness up,” Solinas said after the game. 

“Lebo is a top player for me, this is a player to score more goals. Yes, in my opinion, he is not 100% fit, but when Lebo’s fitness is top, Lebo is an unbelievable player that can help us score goals, this is our player for Bafana Bafana. He is a top scorer when his fitness is okay, Khama is Okay, Castro is Okay, me, I enjoy,” he added.
