Mduduzi Shabalala looks like a new player under Cavin Johnson and that can only be good news for Kaizer Chiefs fans around the land.
Shabalala is back in the fold
After falling out of favour under Molefi Ntseki, Mduduzi Shabalala has started both games under the tutelage of Cavin Johnson. It’s a promising sign for the teenager, who remains a firm favourite with Amakhosi faithful around South Africa. It’s highly likely he’ll keep his place in the Chiefs attack for their clash with Orlando Pirates this weekend. Big players love big occasions and tey don’t come much bigger than this in Mzansi.
