What’s the story?

As mentioned, Amakhosi claimed the CBL Cup trophy this past weekend, with the showpiece returning to South African football for the first time since 2019.

The game itself proved to be an end-to-end encounter at times despite it being deemed a pre-season match ahead of the domestic season. Chiefs managed to overcome Pirates in a penalty shootout, while a number of players made lasting impressions in the tie.


New Kids On The Block

The likes of Brandon Peterson and Kgaogelo Sekgota showed much promise as they made their first appearances as Amakhosi players. For Radebe however, the 21-year-old put on a performance that made him a hot talking point on social media even hours after the game.

Radebe was voted in the starting XI by the supporters and was one of the top performers on the night. ‘Bibo’ as he is affectionately known, showed confidence, skill and good energy levels with many supporters believing that he deserved the Man of the Match award.

During the shootout, Rabebe missed a penalty for Chiefs however, the midfielder showed his positive side and continued to have a smile on his face. In fact, Radebe’s cool and collected persona is perhaps best demonstrated in some of his Instagram uploads where he often poses in a cheerful manner.

Who knows, perhaps Radebe could become the club’s new Smiling Assassin, a nickname given to former star striker, Knowledge Musona!
