Interim Kaizer Chiefs coach Cavin Johnson recently provided candid advice to Happy Mashiane and Sabelo Radebe, two players grappling with limited game time at the club. Both Mashiane and Radebe have found themselves on the sidelines for the Soweto giants, raising concerns about their future with the team.
The duo, particularly Happy Mashiane, has faced a significant reduction in playing time, with Mashiane even expressing a desire to leave the club in the upcoming January transfer window. The frustration among these youthful players is evident, and their struggle to secure a spot on the field has been linked to the presence of more experienced players.
In the recent 1-0 victory over Moroka Swallows in the DStv Premiership, Mashiane finally had an opportunity to showcase his skills in the second half. However, Sabelo Radebe remained an unused substitute, highlighting the ongoing challenges for both players.
Speculations Surrounding Mashiane’s Departure
Reports suggest that Happy Mashiane is actively preparing for a departure from Amakhosi in January. The 25-year-old defender had not featured in a single match this season before the Moroka Swallows encounter. The looming exit raises questions about the factors contributing to Mashiane’s decision and potential destinations.
Experienced Players Ahead in the Pecking Order
The struggles of Mashiane and Radebe to secure a spot in the starting lineup are attributed to the presence of seasoned players like Edmilson Dove and Sifiso Hlanti. Even during Molefi Ntseki’s tenure as head coach, these experienced players have been preferred, hindering the younger duo’s progress.
Coach Johnson’s Optimism for the Future
Despite the challenges, Interim Coach Cavin Johnson remains optimistic about the future of Mashiane and Radebe. Acknowledging their contribution during a crucial moment, he encourages them to assert themselves on the field and not be subservient to their more experienced counterparts.
Aside from their struggles at Kaizer Chiefs, there are reports that Chippa United is interested in securing Happy Mashiane’s services. His potential departure adds to the growing list of players linked with moves away from the Naturena. Furthermore, the club is actively considering refreshing its squad by parting ways with fringe players in the senior team.
As the January transfer window approaches, the fate of Mashiane and Radebe at Kaizer Chiefs remains uncertain, with their performances likely to influence their future with the club.
