In anticipation of this week’s 1064th edition of Soccer Laduma, we preview some of the features included. The latest edition will be available at your nearest outlet tomorrow, Wednesday, 14 March.
Rhulani Mokwena interview
It’s no secret that Orlando Pirates have been undergoing a revolution this season. Bucs head coach has often spoken about healing the souls of the club’s fanatics. In Rhulani Mokwena, he has an assistant that shares the same passion as him for the Soweto giants. In a wide-ranging face-to-face interview with Soccer Laduma’s Joe Crann, Mokwena lays bare the pair’s plans for the team going forward and talks tactics in a manner than only Rhulani Mokwena can articulate!
Brighton Mhlongo interview (Part 2)
The Chippa United goalkeeper’s first part of his interview in Soccer Laduma last week had tongues wagging. If you thought that was enough passion and emotion for a single interview, then you have another thing coming. Soccer Laduma editor Vuyani Joni gets him to open up about how he managed to beat his demons, as well as the Foundation he’s set up to help those who could be going through a similar experience.
Itumeleng Khune feature
The Bafana Bafana number one has just played his 300th game for Kaizer Chiefs and is revered right across the continent for his distribution. We had a look at what the numbers say regarding his contribution to Amakhosi, as well as comment from someone who wore the jersey between the sticks for the club in the past. It’s a fascinating read!
