Matuludi Names Chiefs Star Among Toughest Attackers He’s Faced

Polokwane City defender Thabang Matuludi has named Kaizer Chiefs winger Pule Mmodi as one of the toughest PSL attackers he’s faced.

The 25-year-old towering defender, who can also play as a winger, joined Rise and Shine from the Dolphins FC in 2021/22, and did not disappoint in his topflight season, featuring 33 times for the Orange Army. He scored two goals and provided a single assist in all competitions as they finished in eighth spot, to set up an MTN8 quarter-final clash against Mamelodi Sundowns.

Speaking to iDiski Times writer Lethabo Kganyago in edition 161 of the newspaper, Matuludi also touched on which position he prefers playing between right-back and being a winger.

“I think [Pule] Mmodi and the TS Galaxy winger [Sphiwe] Mahlangu, who wears jersey number 11,” he told iDiski Times.

“Those are the attackers I really felt this season, they weren’t easy to deal with but they were seriously tough.

“Right now, I’m enjoying playing at right-back more than on the wing because I don’t think I still have that winger thing. But I really enjoy playing at right-back.”
