CHIEFS’ CLEAR-OUT

CityPress - - Sport -

Mor­gan Gould (33): In­juries were his Achilles heel dur­ing his four-year stay. He strug­gled with pace. Si­bon­iso Gaxa (32): His three-year stay was er­ratic. He could use ex­pe­ri­ence else­where. Siyanda Xulu (24): Failed to live up to ex­pec­ta­tions since he joined be­fore the start of last sea­son.

Siphelele Mthembu (28): Only two goals to show for the sea­son is not a good re­turn on in­vest­ment. He won’t be missed.

Ivan Bukenya (24): He was used spar­ingly dur­ing Stu­art Bax­ter’s time but failed to grab the op­por­tu­ni­ties given to him.

Kee­gan Ritchie (25): Brought in as a left-back cover but could not de­throne Tsepo Masilela. He has joined Su­perS­port United.

Levy Mok­gothu (26): He wasted his two years at Chiefs as he was never given the chance to show­case his tal­ent. Ed­ward Man­qele (28): Did noth­ing to prove him­self, though was never given enough time. Bon­gani Ndu­l­ula (26): ‘Drogba’ flopped. David Zulu (30): A loan move back to Chippa helped to re­vive him, but he never sparked. Ovidy Karuru (27): The winger fea­tured only five times at the be­gin­ning of the sea­son and spent the rest of the time in the stands. Sula Ma­tovu (23): An­other who failed dis­mally, as he never used his pace to good ef­fect dur­ing the seven games he fea­tured un­der Kom­phela. Reyaad Pi­eterse (24): Was called on when­ever Itume­leng Khune was in­jured and he did not dis­ap­point. He will be missed.

Reneilwe Let­sholonyane (33): It is sur­pris­ing the club could let Yeye go as he was their best player of late. He still has a lot to of­fer. His new club, Su­perS­port, will ben­e­fit from hav­ing him.

Zitha Macheke (22): A loan move to Chippa United did not im­prove his chances of mak­ing it in the se­nior Amakhosi team.

Phi­lani Cele (24): He never got to show what he is made of and a move to an­other club should give him a fresh start.

Chris Matombo (22): His loan move to Chippa United did not yield pos­i­tive re­sults, as he only fea­tured twice for the Chilli Boys.

Sim­phiwe Mtsweni (21): He was set to be Masilela’s un­der­study, but did not re­ally com­pete for the left-back po­si­tion.

Shan­dukani Mulovhedzi (22): The young goal­keeper had no chance of fea­tur­ing ahead of Khune, Pi­eterse and Bril­liant Khuzwayo, but should have learnt a lot from his se­niors.

Andisiwe Mt­sila (21): An­other young­ster who never got to shine on the big­ger stage and strug­gled for game time. At his age, he should go where he can play reg­u­larly.
