In anticipation of this week’s edition of Soccer Laduma, issue 1091, we preview some of the features included. The latest edition will be available at your nearest outlet tomorrow, Wednesday, September 19.
Kaizer Chiefs feature
Last season, Kaizer Chiefs had the best record when looking at the number of goals conceded, however, this was due to the number of players that were kept behind the ball in their defensive style of play. Why have Amakhosi started to leak goals regularly? Do Erick Mathoho and Willard Katsande have a future in the starting line-up in a more attack-minded team? Soccer Laduma investigates.
Thamsanqa Sangweni interview
When Thamsanqa Sangweni made his move to Orlando Pirates it seemed like it was a move orchestrated by the football gods. At the time, it was a Pirates team that needed a wake-up call, while Sangweni needed a bigger platform to showcase his talents. After a good start, the Dondotha-born midfielder started regularly becoming a rare sight from the matchday squad, amongst ill-discipline off the field. Now, on his return to Chippa United, Thami shares his feelings to Soccer Laduma’s Celine Abrahams.
Also in issue 1091…
Peter Leeuwenburgh interview
It’s not every day that a player arrives a few weeks before the start of the season as a completely new package at a club and in the country and makes it as a first-choice option. But, for Peter Leeuwenburgh it was no tall order for him to win over Benni McCarthy as they have him to thank for reaching the MTN8 final. Soccer Laduma’s Baver Nazo caught up with the Dutch shot-stopper about his interesting football career.
Bonginkosi Ntuli interview
Bonginkosi Ntuli’s move to Mamelodi Sundowns, whom he signed from Golden Arrows in 2014, could be compared to money in the hands of a loan shark – always on the move. So much so, that his goalscoring exploits for Abafana Bes’thende are becoming a distant memory. And, with everyone thinking that he will finally get a chance to showcase his talents this season, he has been sent on loan yet again to AmaZulu. The 27-year-old tells Soccer Laduma’s Beaver Nazo about how it feels to be home.
Kylian Mbappe feature
At 19-years-old, Kylian Mbappe has lifted the one trophy that has even evaded the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, the FIFA World Cup, while his breathtaking numbers suggest he could be on course to outscore them too. Soccer Laduma’s international team analyses the giant steps that the teenager has already taken since bursting onto the scene.
Soccer Laduma’s Peter Raath chats to Witbank Spurs’ assistant and goalkeeper coach, Eugene Etame Soppo about the club’s early season form.
This week, we hear from Banyana Banyana head coach, Desiree Ellis on the COSAFA Cup and AFCON preparations.
In this week’s edition of our beloved Siyagobhoza, the crew reveals that Mamelodi Sundowns are gearing up to decide on the future of one of their attackers, a Kaizer Chiefs defender has been targeted by SuperSport United, and Chippa United are said to be chasing a new signing, as well as much, much more!
