Happy Mashiane says that he’s delighted to have made the step up into the Kaizer Chiefs first team, giving some detail on what he hopes to bring to the side.

The youngster, nicknamed ‘Vavo’, gave some insight into his family life this week, telling the club’s official website, “She (his mother, Mable) ran a daycare from home to get an income. She’s simply amazing. She did everything for me.

“My dad (Emmanuel) has always been a huge Kaizer Chiefs supporter, my big hero was Thabo Mooki. I loved watching him play.

“I want to make my family proud and to make my mother happy. As they say, ‘If a mother is happy everything will fall into place’.”

The 20-year-old, who joined Chiefs’ academy four years ago, was converted from a left winger to a left back by Arther Zwane following his move from the Future Through Football Academy and likens himself to Chelsea man, Marcos Alonso.

He said, “I have some of his characteristics. Alonso is also a very good crosser of the ball… I don’t like to get favours for scoring a goal, I find it much more rewarding to give an assist.”

Mashiane could potentially make his debut for Chiefs in the Nedbank Cup this weekend when they take on Tornado FC.
