New Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Sibongiseni Mthethwa brings a unique skill set to the party at Naturena. Let’s take a closer look.
MTHETHWA IS A SPECIALIST 6
Sibongiseni Mthethwa does his best work at the base of midfield, breaking up attacks and distributing the ball over short distances to spring his team’s own passing sequences. Right now, Kaizer Chiefs are using hybrid players in the shape of Edson Castillo and Yusuf Maart. Maart is naturally more inclined to go forward but is currently performing more of a box-to-box role. Similarly, Castillo is a complete package player who can do a bit of everything. If Mthethwa were to arrive at Naturena, it would free Venezuelan star Castillo up to bomb forward with more regularity.

Meanwhile, Mthethwa is in line to make his Glamour Boys debut after being cup-tied for their MTN8 clash with Sundowns. The former Stellies man could be drafted into the starting XI at the expense of either George Matlou or Yusuf Maart. Chiefs face Babina Noko on Wednesday 27 September at 19:30.
