In anticipation of this week’s edition of Soccer Laduma, issue 1092, we preview some of the features included. The latest edition will be available at your nearest outlet tomorrow, Wednesday, September 26.
MTN8 final preview
Then there were two! The MTN8 final is upon us as SuperSport United look to defend their title, while Cape Town City seek their first top 8 gold medal. Soccer Laduma’s Vuyani Joni caught up with a few role players in this much-anticipated spectacle.
Kaizer Chiefs feature
In late August, Kaizer Chiefs made a surprise announcement as the Naturena-based side secured the services of Lebogang Manyama as a replacement for the outgoing Siphiwe Tshabalala, therefore leaving big shoes to fill for ‘Kaka’. With his failed move to Turkey, Manyama will be looking to regain the form that he once enjoyed at Cape Town City. However, will he be able to do so at Amakhosi? Soccer Laduma analyses…
Orlando Pirates feature
Last season, Orlando Pirates scored the second most goals in the PSL, however despite the attacking brand of football and having the most possession per game in the league, their genuine strikers struggled to score goals on a regular basis. Soccer Laduma takes a look at the Soweto giants’ issues with converting chances, and whether or not having a prolific frontman will cost them.
Also in issue 1092…
Tebogo Potsane interview
For a team that has had its fair share of troubles on and off the pitch, Bloemfontein Celtic have managed to turn their performances on the field into a talking point. One of their players who has also resurrected his career is Tebogo Potsane. Soccer Laduma’s Beaver Nazo chatted to the 25-year-old as he hopes to keep up the consistency.
Puleng Tlolane interview
How is it possible that one of a club’s most recognisable names goes from being a hero to a zero and no one seems to bat an eyelid? Polokwane City’s forgotten man Puleng Tlolane, once reportedly on the wanted list of Mamelodi Sundowns, now ‘plies’ his ‘trade’ at the club’s MultiChoice Diski Challenge side, after his inexplicable fall from grace. Soccer Laduma’s Beaver Nazo speaks to an emotionally broken Tlolane.
FIFA The Best Awards feature
Soccer Laduma’s David Kappel dissects Monday evening’s FIFA The Best Awards ceremony as Real Madrid’s Luka Modric beat both Cristiano Ronaldo and Mohamed Salah to the prestigious prize.
Soccer Laduma’s Peter Raath chats to TS Galaxy’s physiotherapist, Lauren Tate about her career, players, nutrition and life under Dan Malesela.
This week, we hear from Banyana Banyana’s Thembi Kgatlana on winning the COSAFA Cup and AFCON preparations.
In this week’s edition of our beloved Siyagobhoza, the crew reveals that one of Mamelodi Sundowns’ out-of-favour players could be pushing for a loan move come January next year, Kaizer Chiefs are yet to open talks with one of their key players, and ex-Ajax Cape Town captain eyes an overseas move, as well as much, much more!
