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 938. The latest edition will be out on the shelves tomorrow, Wednesday, September 9.
Willard Katsande – Kaizer Chiefs’ midfield ball-winner, Willard Katsande, is one the most crucial players in Amakhosi’s team, with his dual role of killing off opposition offenses and kick-starting his team’s transitional attacks.
In this forthright interview, the 29-year-old Zimbabwean explains how his tough upbringing fetching fire wood barefoot made him the strong man he is today.
Make sure to read this compelling interview with the player affectionately called ‘Salt and Vinegar’ by the Amakhosi faithful.
Filipe Ovono – Orlando Pirates' new goalkeeper, Filipe Ovono, currently has an unexpected yet prime opportunity to become the club’s number one keeper following Brighton Mhlongo’s unfortunate injury.
Soccer Laduma brings you the very first, exclusive interview with the 22-year-old shot-stopper from Equatorial Guinea.
Ovono tells Soccer Laduma why he chose Orlando Pirates over other European teams that wanted his services, and shares the special manner in which Irvin Khoza spoke to him.
Surprise Moriri – Mamelodi Sundowns have been noted for not keeping players for particularly lengthy durations at Chloorkop. It takes a player as special as Surprise Moriri to break that trend.
The Mpumalanga-born player, once described by Gordon Igesund as one of the most talented players he ever coached, explains his current player-coach role at the club.
The 35-year-old Moriri, also known as ‘Masterpieces’, discusses how younger players always keep their watchful eyes on him and how this makes his role in the team vital.
ALSO… we have part one of a two-part interview with former Amakhosi coach Stuart Baxter, to find out what on earth happened in Turkey and whether he regrets leaving South Africa; we interview Bafana Bafana head coach Ephraim ‘Shakes’ Mashaba, to talk about his puzzling team selections, the Mauritania disaster and consistently overlooking Kermit Erasmus for selection.
We also have all the latest news, gossip and skinner in this week’s always controversial Siyagobhoza. It’s an exciting Soccer Laduma edition!
