Cape Town - Former Kaizer Chiefs defender Dominic Isaacs claims Eric Mathoho should have left Kaizer Chiefs after winning the Premiership last season.

Isaacs cites the progression of Tefu Mashamaite, Mandla Masango and Knowledge Musona in Europe as his reasoning for the statement, as Mathoho and Amakhosi suffered a season of mediocrity by their high standards.

The Royal Eagles player feels 'Tower' needed a new challenge in order to progress as a footballer, and his decision to stay put at Naturena harmed his reputation and possibly put off potential suitors in signing the South Africa international.

"For me, 'Tower' should have gone overseas last season after having had a great campaign with Chiefs," Isaacs told Goal website.

"He's dropping standards because he needed a new challenge. He should have followed Tefu Mashamaite because they were on top of their game and achieved a lot with Chiefs last season.

"If I were 'Tower', I would have gone overseas at the end of the season and I think it is time that our players overcame the fear of going to Europe."
