Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs midfielder George Maluleka says that he has had to work incredibly hard to breakthrough into the Glamour Boys' starting line-up following his move from SuperSport United in 2013.The 25-year-old initially struggled to make his mark with the Soweto giants, but having started six of Chiefs' first seven league matches this season, he is very much at the forefront of coach Stuart Baxter's thinking."It’s been difficult but I think I’m playing because I’ve worked hard throughout and I never gave up," Maluleka told Football411 of his rise to prominence at Chiefs."The guys [teammates] also played a huge part, they kept supporting me which am grateful for."I’m not where I want to be yet but I’ll work even harder to get there."Next on the agenda for the unbeaten Chiefs is a clash with one of Maluleka's former teams, Ajax Cape Town."The mood is good in camp," the midfielder commented ahead of the game."We know it’s not going to be a walk in the park, they are second on the log. I’m a former Ajax player and it is always exciting playing your former team."We’ve been doing well but we want to do better. Like I said it won’t be an essay game but hopefully on the day we will be at our best."
