Mangena: There Are More Meyiwas In Chiefs’ Development

Mike Mangena Wants Chiefs To Focus On Development

By Soccer Laduma - Sep 24, 2017 11:55 AM

Former Kaizer Chiefs striker Mike Mangena has discussed the progress of Kaizer Chiefs’ youth academy, after the rise to prominence of the 17-year-old, Wiseman Meyiwa. 

Benni Reveals What Chiefs’ Komphela Said To Him After The Match

Meyiwa seems to have established a first team role at Amakhosi after netting his first goal for the club against Cape Town City in a 2-0 victory on matchday three of the current Absa Premiership season and subsequently handed a starting role against reigning league champions Bidvest Wits, as well as against Maritzburg United on Wednesday. Following this, Mangena has said that he believes there could be more gems emerging from Amakhosi’s development ranks and that PSL teams should start putting more focus into uncovering homegrown talent.

“Meyiwa comes from the development, and, if the development produces that kind of quality, then it means that it’s working,” he told Soccer Laduma. “It means there are more Meyiwas in the development ranks. We all know that the future of every PSL team or professional outfit lies in their development of young players.”

Chiefs To Swoop In For Musona?

The former Watford frontman went on to say that players who have grown up at the club don’t need to adjust to the club’s culture and that the Soweto giants should therefore consistently rely on their youngsters to add quality to the team.

"Chiefs deal with a lot of things, but when you develop your players, you are in control of those players. When you buy, the player coming to the team doesn’t know the culture of the club; he doesn’t understand the philosophy of the team,” he continued. “When you develop a player, he already knows the culture of the team. I’m hoping to see more players coming out of Chiefs’ development, it mustn’t be just one player coming up once every 10 years. We want to see more of those players coming to the fore.”

Is Meyiwa 17? We know that Chief's development has age cheats & we know that when Senzo passed on (RIP), he's twin had a different age.

@Danko : Relax there is a possibility that the team will be disqualified because of so many lasers on the field. Your goalkeeper was affected so they wrote. Its unfair. We treat them nicely and they do this to us.
