Khanye Questions Manyama Approach After Chiefs Draw

Former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Junior Khanye feels that continuing to field Lebogang Manyama even when performances are poor could be sending the wrong message to young players.

The Amakhosi played out a goalless draw against TS Galaxy on Wednesday night, and according to OptaJabu, it was their ninth draw in 15 games against newly promoted sides.

Chiefs’ mixed star, which includes one win, one draw and one defeat in the DStv Premiership, has left them in 11th place on the league table after three games.

Due to Chiefs’ transfer ban, Hunt will need to depend on a number of youngsters throughout the season, and Khanye believes that field under-performing players could affect their mentality.

“I am very disappointed in Manyama… He plays crosses when people are not ready,” Khanye told iDiskiTV.

“I am surprised that they have given him the armband. He is a former Player of the Season, when he joined Kaizer Chiefs a lot was expected.

“If you play him every week without performing, what message does that send to the young players?”

Make sure you check out Khanye’s full analysis of the mid-week clash on YouTube, or on the iDiskiTV page of this website.
