Langerman: Mashaba Competition Is Good

Mamelodi Sundowns defender, Tebogo Langerman, has indicated that competition for the left-back spot with Mzikayise Mashaba makes him a better player.

Downs are blessed with two quality left-backs, meaning coach Pitso Mosimane often has to rotate the likes of Langerman and Mashaba.

As of late, Mashaba seems to be the more preferred of the two but has also been used further up the pitch at times with Langerman slotting in behind him.

Langerman has indicated that the stiff competition for places only serves to make him a better player.

“It’s always challenging to have another player who is pushing you. But you know competition is good in this game because we help each other and also the team. The competition has made me a better player,” he told Soccer Laduma.

“It’s hard (to hold down a regular starting place), but at the same time it’s easy too, as long as I work hard and do what the coach wants me to do. I will do what the coach asks of me and then the rest is up to him to select which player he wants to use."

Langerman: Sundowns Will Recover From This

Who is your preferred option at left back? Do you like seeing Mashaba in a more advanced role?
