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 913.The latest edition will be out on the shelves tomorrow, Wednesday, March 18.
Tsepo Masilela - Kaizer Chiefs’ marauding left fullback has been outstanding for Chiefs over the last few seasons. A player with an interesting story to tell, Masilela started out his career at Benoni United in Johannesburg before making a dream move to Maccabi Haifa in Israel.
This was followed by a brief stint with Getafe in La Liga, shortly before he returned to SA to join the team he currently is with, Amakhosi.
In this interview, we chat to Masilela, who says his time at Chiefs has been a joy and a pleasure, about his impressive and varied career.
Happy Jele - One of the most experienced campaigners in Pirates’ squad, Happy Jele has seen a recent revival of form after experiencing the inevitable dip that, at times, is suffered by all professional sportspeople.
Jele, a mild-mannered and professional player, chats to Soccer Laduma about his time with Bucs, the roller-coaster season so far and challenging for titles in what remains of the season.
He also recalls the numerous coaches he has played under at Pirates, from Ruud Krol to Vladimir Vermezovic, and explains why he believes VV got a raw deal at Bucs.
Alje Schut - Inspirational, league-winning captain, Alje Schut, recently announced that he would not be extending his stay at Downs come the end of the season. The team leader explains why he has taken the decision to move back to Holland, but goes on to say that he still has ambitions with Sundowns.
What does he hope to achieve in the little time he has left at Chloorkop, and what would be his greatest achievement playing on the African continent? The forthright Dutchman chats about these and other issues in this honest interview.
Tlou Segolela - ‘Sox’ recently made the move to Platinum Stars after a frustrating season with hardly any game-time at Orlando Pirates.
In this interview, Segolela talks tactics with Soccer Laduma’s David Minchella. With a string of accolades to his name, he chats about his experience at Bucs and explains why the time was right for him to go. Although accepting of his lot at The Ghost, ‘Sox’ describes what he thinks his ideal role at Pirates would have been.
Bradley Ralani - Ralani recently made a move to Lyngby in Denmark. He talks about the time he has spent in Europe and explains the misfortune of his former club, Landskrona, in this interview.
The speedy midfield man, who has, as yet, never been called up to Bafana Bafana, goes on to say that he thinks that Shakes Mashaba doesn’t even know who he is. What would it take for Bradley Ralani to get a national team look-in? Lunga Adam chats to the Kimberley-born player to find out what he thinks the way forward is.
Nedbank Cup Preview - The Nedbank Cup round of 32 was brutal for the minnows, leaving many of them crushed by the wayside. Only six lower league sides remain in the tournament, and with four of them pitted against other non-PSL sides, the round of 16 could potentially see all but two of the second and third tier sides remaining.
Will the PSL clubs continue their demolition of the so-called small fry teams, or will Jomo Cosmos or Black Leopards pull something out of the bag? With the Nedbank Cup, one just never knows. Ke Yona – this is the one!
