Shongwe: Yeye needs a break

Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs legend William Shongwe says a spell on the sidelines would help to reinvigorate midfielder Reneilwe Letsholonyane.

The South Africa international has played in all but two of Chiefs' games this season, but was left out of the team's key Telkom Knockout clash against Orlando Pirates on November 7 in favour of Lucky Baloyi.

'Yeye' has been able to rest during the recently-concluded international break, but Shongwe believes he could do with more time off the field.

"As far as what Lucky Baloyi's form means for Reneilwe Letsholonyane's chances of regular game-time, I think it is a beautiful scenario for any coach to have," Shongwe told Soccer Laduma.

"While it might be viewed as bad for Letsholonyane, (but) you know what, it is a long season.

"This is where a whole lot of coaches are able to get the best out of their players by being able to rotate them without losing the intensity of the game.

"If Baloyi comes in and performs as well as he's done recently, that gives Letsholonyane - who has been flogged almost to death with so many games played - a chance to recharge his batteries."
