In This Week's Edition Of Soccer Laduma
In anticipation of this week's edition of Soccer Laduma, we preview some of the features included in issue number 886. The latest edition will be out on the shelves tomorrow, Wednesday, August 27.
Thandani Ntshumayelo – Affectionately known as Bibo, Ntshumayelo has managed to force himself into Vladimir Vermezovic’s starting line-up so far in the new season, despite initially being linked with a loan move away from the club before the new campaign.
In this week’s edition of Soccer Laduma, Ntshumayelo looks at the team’s league performances so far and what they need to do to get things right. He also shares his views on the criticism levelled against the team’s striker, Kermit Erasmus before talking about the new-found midfield combination between him, Oupa Manyisa and Issa Sarr.
Max Tshabalala – The new owner of Bloemfontein Celtic sat down with Soccer Laduma in this week’s edition, to talk about his plans and vision for the club, after the sale of the club from Jimmy Augousti.
Tshabalala opens up about the sale and also clears the air about the rumours doing the rounds that a government official was involved in the purchase of the club. He also reveals the possible changes that will take place at Siwelele in the future.
Abia Nale – The former Kaizer Chiefs skilful winger has finally put pen-to-paper at Mpumalanga Black Aces on a permanent basis, following the expiry of his loan move from Chiefs.
Nale, in this week’s edition of Soccer Laduma, opens up about his situation as he missed out on the team’s pre-season due to a clause in his loan deal that barred Aces from signing him again without paying Chiefs.
Cavin Johnson – The under-fire SuperSport United coach reacts to rumours linking former Bafana Bafana coach, Gordon Igesund to his job at the Tshwane-based club in this week’s edition of Soccer Laduma.
Johnson also talks about his plans for Matsatsantsa a Pitori as well as how he is handling a young player like Morne Nel.
SuperSport United have, by their standards, not had a good start to the new season at all, but the former Platinum Stars mentor says he’s not panicking about the situation at all.
Kagisho Dikgacoi – One of the names missing in Shakes Mashaba’s first Bafana Bafana team, due to take on Sudan and Nigeria in the Afcon qualifiers, was that of the former Golden Arrows captain, Kagisho Dikgacoi.
Soccer Laduma caught up with the Cardiff City central midfielder about his omission from the squad, in this week’s edition of the paper. Dikgacoi also reveals why he left a Premiership side, Crystal Palace for their Championship League counterparts. He also talks about Arrows’ relegation.
Mandla Masango – Kaizer Chiefs coach, Stuart Baxter, was on the verge of either loaning out or transfer-listing Mandla Masango before the start of the season but, if the former Walter Stars player’s current form is anything to go by, getting rid of Masango is the last thing on Baxter’s mind.
In this week’s edition of Soccer Laduma, Masango talks about his situation at the club. He also reveals what motivated him to bounce back the way he has done so far, after almost being deemed surplus to requirements at the Naturena-based club.
Lovers Mohlala – The former Bafana Bafana and Mamelodi Sundowns left back takes a look at Sundowns’ start to the new season and reveals why he still believes the Chloorkop-based club will defend their league title.
There’s also a lot of Siyagobhoza stories to look forward to.
