Cape Town - Kaizer
Chiefs defender Tsepo Masilela says the form of Innocent Maela at
Orlando Pirates is encouraging and believes big things lie
ahead for the defender.
Maela, who is Masilela's brother, has become a mainstay at left-back
for the Sea Robbers and his form has even earned him selection to Bafana
Bafana for the upcoming Four Nations tournament involving Zimbabwe,
Angola and Zambia.
Speaking to the media, the injured Chiefs left-back, who has been out
for the majority of the campaign, said: "Firstly, I am happy for him
and congrats to him and he has really done well, he is a decent left
back, he is strong, he has got the pace and can deliver.
"I am really happy for him, he must just keep working hard and remain
humble. I am quite impressed, he has done well, if you check the number
of games he has played and he must not forget that he’s at Pirates
(and) there is also competition.
"To be at Pirates and to be a regular in your first season, it is not
easy so he has done well, he must just keep on working hard, he has
still got a bright future ahead."
