MTHETHWA AND MAART ARE DIFFERENT FOOTBALLERS
Sibongiseni Mthethwa isn’t a direct rival for Yusuf Maart’s place in the Chiefs XI. However, his arrival gives coach Molefi Ntseki a number of intriguing new tactical options. Mthethwa is a specialist 6 which might facilitate a switch to a 4-2-3-1. That might be bad news for Maart, who then has to contend with Edson Castillo for a place alongside The Ox. Of course, seasons are long and games are plenty, but Maart will be fretting about his status in the setup at Naturena and how many minutes he’ll actually play.
Meanwhile, hit up James Freemantle for more insights, analysis and love for the beautiful game of football.
