Chabalala: It Would Be Good To Have Another Captain Like Tyson

The news of Thulani ‘Tyson’ Hlatshwayo possibly joining Orlando Pirates excites the club’s former defender Tonic Chabalala.

During his four years at the Soweto giants, Chabalala played with Happy ‘Magents’ Jele at some point, when the current captain of the side started out as a youngster.

Chabalala believes that Jele would grow his game further with playing alongside the captain of both Bidvest Wits and Bafana Bafana. 

“We’ve always wanted Tyson as the Buccaneers and it would be great if we finally get to sign him, especially considering that Happy Jele could soon retire. It would be good for us to have another captain like Tyson. He would be a good signing,” said Chabalala.

“I am not saying that Happy is not good but I am worried that maybe he is left with only one season in him. It’s maybe one or two seasons remaining for him. I believe in matured players at the back for the team and Tyson would be a good addition,” the former centre-back told the Siya crew.
