Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Mothobi Mvala is a player that divides opinions among supporters however, a particular fan feels that he has been unfairly criticized and that he could well ply his trade abroad one day.
What’s the story?
Whenever players sign for Sundowns, they know the going will get tough one way or the other. Whether it be a packed schedule for regular players or footballer’s trying to break into the starting XI, the grade at Chloorkop is known to be a cut above the rest.
In making his way from Highlands Park, the pressure was on for Mvala from the word ‘go’. However, the Downs coaches have been convinced by his displays and he continues to be a regular for the club and also, recently featured for Bafana Bafana.
The talk among fans is that Mvala does not possess the qualities of a typical midfielder, who plays with style and finesse. Known for being a hard grafter in the middle of the park, a local football fan mentioned that Mvala has proven himself and that he has what it takes to play in Europe.
The Boy Can Play
Thandeka Mhlungu, commented under a Soccer Laduma facebook post by saying, “It’s not like the boy cant play. The problem is South African supporters and so called analyzers who dont know football.
“The guy proved himself in his previous team. Sundowns bought him and he is playing regularly, and the national team coach is playing the guy.
“Then you ask yourself who is who. I can tell you now Mvala will go overseas before your favorites.”
Have your say…
Do you think Mvala has what it takes to make it abroad?
