Thabiso Kutumela is flying for Maritzburg United at present as he repays the faith shown in him by Eric Tinkler, taking his opportunities on the field whether he’s handed a starting berth or not.

The 26-year-old got his latest goal as he helped his side get a big away win over title-chasing Bidvest Wits, scoring the only goal in a 1-0 win that saw them reach the vital 30-point mark, overtaking their tally from the 2018/19 season (27 points) with nine games left to go.

As quoted by the club’s official website, Tinkler said, “Kutu has been absolutely fantastic this season. And yet I used to start him on the bench… And that’s a positive, he’s become more of a team player, and because of that it’s made him a better player and I’m happy for him because he’s put in a lot of hard work.

“He continues to support the team even when he’s not in the starting line-up. He understands the reasons behind it and its been about him looking after himself and having a positive attitude. For that he then reaps these types of rewards.”
