Cape Town - Kaizer
Chiefs coach Steve Komphela has confirmed that defenders Kgotso Moleko
and Ramahlwe Mphahlele will only return to Absa Premiership action next year.
Despite the pair recently returning to full training following their
long-term injuries, Komphela takes the view that they haven't reached
the right level of fitness to come back into his first-team plans.
He also hinted that when they do come back, he may switch to a
back-four following the recent usage of three in defence with Joseph
Molangoane and Philani Zulu operating regularly as wing-backs.
"We will have to have a think about what we are going to do‚ but we
will have a plan. Moleko has started to come back‚ Rama (Mphahlele) as
well is gaining fitness‚ we are just at the final stages of their
protocols," Komphela told reporters.
"January we should have them. Then it will be the headache of what do
you do with Philani‚ what do you do with Rama‚ what do you do with
Moleko‚ Molangoane‚ it's a nice one."
