Hall of Fame - Maponyane vs Ndlanya

Gone are the glory days of the glorious strikers of our time. However, we have had a couple gems pass through our halls today we look at two of them. There isn’t space for everyone in our Hall of Fame, so if it came down to it: which would you choose?

Marks Maponyane

What more is there to say about “Go Man Go” other than he is the all-time top goal scorer of Kaizer Chiefs? His starting salary at Amakhosi was R600 a month. He is the only local player to win footballer of the year three times. Maponyane played for a whole host of clubs including Vitoria Setubal, Dynamos, Orlando Pirates and Wits University. He played 13 games for Bafana Bafana and scored two goals.

Pollen Ndlanya

Ndlanya only had to train for two hours with Kaizer Chiefs before then coach, Jeff Butler, decided he should be signed. He had two spells at Kaizer Chiefs, disrupted by a spell at Manning Rangers, in his second stint with Amakhosi he scored nine goals in two games (five against his old club Manning Rangers). He, like Marks Maponyane, would also do some floor crossing and eventually play for arch-rivals Orlando Pirates. He scored over 100 career goals making him (and Marks) part of an illustrious club. He also represented South Africa 29 times and scored five goals.

If it came down to it, which one of these players would you have in your Hall of Fame?
