Doc: I Don’t Like To Single Out Any Individual, but…


By Soccer Laduma - Aug 09, 2018 10:00 AM

The start of the 2018/19 PSL season has seen some thrills and spills already and SportPesa ambassador, Doctor Khumalo is in the Clubhouse as he shares his views on what has taken place.

The highlight match from the past weekend’s fixtures was the opening encounter as current league title holders, Mamelodi Sundowns welcomed Kaizer Chiefs to Loftus Versfeld. The high-profile match ended in a 1-all draw and there were some individual brilliances on the pitch as Amakhosi’s Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya caught the attention of many, especially of the Bafana Bafana legend.

“This column is not about singling anyone out or discussing games that people have already seen. However, I feel I need to say something about the game between Mamelodi Sundowns v Kaizer Chiefs. I thought it was an unbelievable performance by both teams, giving it their all.

“However, I must commend Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya, who played out of his skin in such a big game. He grabbed the opportunity with both hands and gave as much as he got in that left back position. Like I said, I don’t like to single out any individual, but I think the boy deserves a mention after such an unbelievable performance.”

Last week, Khumalo emphasised on the fact that our local clubs should be fielding their development players and was excited to see that Ntiya-Ntiya was given the nod against the high-flying Masandawana.

“I spoke about development of players recently and here comes a Chiefs development product to make a name for himself in such a big stage to prove his quality.”

but MOTMA went to billiat, sir and besides, even sundowns had a debutant from their development or maybe you are trying to tell us that chiefs is the only meaningful team in psl! i see your comment as subjective and unfair to other players!

Chiefs should field the newly promoted youngsters including the keeper. Win or lose let them focuss on building for the future. Such games and friendlies should be for that purpose. Chiefs supporters must grow up and support instead of coaching. Let them take a leaf from Bloem Celtic supporters. No vuvuzela but go make the noise.
