Former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder, Linda Buthelezi, has been impressed by his former club’s new-look midfield.
Amakhosi have brought in three highly rated midfielders in the form of former Bloemfontein Celtic and Amajita playmaker, Keagan Buchanan, former SuperSport United man, Enocent Mkhabela, and Zimbabwean star, Edmore Chirambadare - and Buthelezi has emphasised the importance of midfielders in any team.
“You know many people just talk about strikers not scoring or defence allowing goals and they forget that the midfield is the engine for any team” he told the Siya crew.
The 47-year-old went on to say that Chiefs’ midfield looks capable of bringing balance to the team.
“If you have a good defence then your team is well balanced. Chiefs midfield looks good and that is important for the team," the 1996 Afcon-winning midfielder concluded.
