OPINION: Time for Lebese to shine

OPINION: Time for Lebese to shine
There’s something I don’t quite understand about George Lebese. He’s one of the most talented players in the PSL, but he has somehow not reached his full potential and he is in his ninth year with Kaizer Chiefs. Like Themba Zwane of Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates’ Mpho Makola, Lebese can sometimes be casual on the pitch and that has played a part in them making it even further than they already are in their careers. By now, Lebese should be a star and a player considered for big individual awards such as the footballer of the season. There is no denying he has the skill, the eye for goal and the ability to take on the responsbility of being a match-winner for Amakhosi. But it’s time he reached his full potential, and the coming season provides an opportunity for him to finally make the mark he should be making in domestic football. Granted, there have been some injuries over the last two seasons that have hampered his progress, which has led to him losing his place in the starting line-up. Lebese should fight for his place in the team because he won’t just walk into the starting line-up. He has made a good start during pre-season, scoring in the Maize Cup final against Free State Stars recently, as well as in a friendly against Township Rollers at the weekend in Botswana. These are promising signs ahead of the 2017/18 campaign, but he has to consistently perform to earn his place in the starting line-up.  Chiefs coach Steve Komphela often used Edmore Chirambadare on the left-wing last season but Lebese is more creative than the Zimbabwean, and gets more goals, which is what any coach wants from their wingers. There have been talks of a possible departure for Lebese because he wants more game-time. However, with such a promising pre-season, Lebese could feel that this is the season he finally fulfils his potential. Let the breaking news come to you! Sign up for KICK OFF... Learn more
Masilela hopes to hit ground running

Masilela hopes to hit ground running
Amakhosi, who played to a 1-1 draw with Township Rollers of Botswana at the weekend, were guilty of dropping points in matches they would have otherwise been expected to win and, towards the end of the season, their chances of clinching the Absa Premiership title decreased. The Glamour Boys, though, had no one to blame but themselves, but this season they want to take charge of their destiny and starting the new campaign strong is crucial. “The stronger you start, the better. We don’t want to be in a situation where we are playing catch up. Once you start strong, it gives you that cushion, even throughout the season where you hit a slump. You know that you have started strong, that you have enough points or you have already won a [knockout competition] trophy. That extra cushion is important,” says Masilela. "There’s always pressure, but you play with less pressure [when you have points in the bag]. But if you are playing catch up, if you lose a game, the gap becomes eight [points], if you lose the gap becomes 11 [points]. [So] We would love to start strong." Even though the Amakhosi players want to win a trophy for Steve Komphela, Masilela says their coach has told them to win silverware for the brand and the supporters. “It’s the coach’s third season and we have to deliver. As players we know coaches and players go and some get transferred and others don’t get their contracts renewed, but we are just focused on the job at hand,” says Masilela. “The coach has said that we should never worry about putting him there. Obviously, we want to win something for him, but we should do it for the brand and the Kaizer Chiefs fans. We should do it for people.” Amakhosi will take on Soweto rivals Orlando Pirates in the Carling Black Label Champion Cup at FNB Stadium on Saturday. Let the breaking news come to you!

Cardoso: We have to step up
Cardoso, who is still trying to find his feet since joining the club in 2015, says they haven’t yet met with Amakhosi chairman Kaizer Motaung to discuss this season’s goals for the club, but reveals the players have already had their meeting discussing what they want to achieve with the club. “We haven’t had a meeting with the management. That is still going to come,” Cardoso tells KickOff.com. “But for us as players, we had a meeting and we said we have to step up to the plate.” READ: Police warning for Carling Cup fans Cardoso acknowledged it’s been two hard-hitting seasons for management, players and supporters, and again insisted silverware is a must for the Naturena side in the 2017/18 campaign. “Two seasons without a trophy is very bad for Chiefs and for our fans,” he says. “Chiefs is a team that wins trophies every season.
