In anticipation of this week’s 1200th edition of Soccer Laduma, we preview some of the features included. The latest edition will be available at your nearest outlet tomorrow, Wednesday, November 18.
Siphelele Mkhulise Feature
The Mamelodi Sundowns attacker has shown great progress, not to mention maturity beyond his years, since breaking through in the team. According to many observers, Mkhulise looks set to follow in the footsteps of Percy Tau, who is also of humble beginning and had to first go out on loan in the lower ranks before securing a spot in the star-studded side. What makes him stand out from most of his peers? What are some of the attributes of his game that make him a dangerous player going forward? Most importantly, has he got the right attitude, which would see him becoming a success in a top European league in future? Find out the answers to all these questions as the likes of Hlompho Kekana, David Notoane and Khabo Zondo speak about Mkhulise in this Soccer Laduma feature.
Kaizer Chiefs Transfers Feature
Since inception, Kaizer Chiefs have always been known to sign top-quality players to enhance the club’s reputation as one of the best not only in South Africa, but in Africa at large. However, in recent seasons, the Soweto giants have made a host of signings that just didn’t make it, which left the club’s supporters asking some questions about their transfer policy. As a matter of fact, Amakhosi have signed 23 players across the seven transfer windows prior to their ban by FIFA. Having been barred by the world football governing body from registering new players, it gives Soccer Laduma a chance to look at exactly how many of those players have met expectations and proven to a success, how many turned out to be surplus to requirements and how many are still trying to prove themselves. This is a quite revealing, if not shocking, review of Kaizer Chiefs’ recent transfer activity – don’t miss it!
Orlando Pirates Feature
At a club as big as Orlando Pirates, winning is a non-negotiable, be it a friendly game or a competitive outing or a championship race. However, the Soweto giants will be the first to admit that, by their very high standards, they have underachieved in recent seasons. Bucs’ trophy drought has extended to six years now, it’s not a laughing matter to the Ghost and this season’s squad is expected to deliver. Josef Zinnbauer’s men have started the campaign on a high note, reaching the final of the MTN8 and remaining unbeaten in the league after three rounds of action. So, is this the season where Pirates will shake off the pain, heartbreak and disappointment of the past and bring back glory to an institution that won the CAF Champions League back in 1995? Soccer Laduma seeks the comments of some of the club’s most famous legends, as well as analysts, to find out how they see Bucs faring this season.
