Cape Town - Former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Junior Khanye feels the team would play better if the coach plays George Maluleka in the central-midfield position instead of Willard Katsande.

Maluleka has been forced to play up-front alongside Camaldine Abraw for the better part of the season, as coach Steve Komphela continues to try various combinations in all departments of the team.

The former Chiefs winger believes Maluleka would do a better job as the anchorman than what he's offered the team in the striking department so far this campaign, before adding that Abraw should partner with Edward Manqele if the team wants to be effective in front of goal.

"For me, I will never play George there [behind Abraw]," Khanye told Goal website. "George, I will play him as an anchor, I don't prefer Katsande.

"I will play Maluleka as an anchor and then play Reneilwe Letsholonyane too, both of them in the midfield. Both can defend and attack, they also have creativity and strength."

"I will also play Manqele with Abraw because when he played with George it didn't work let us be honest.

"So, Manqele can play with Abraw only as a second striker because he is more mobile and can make more chances for Abraw than Maluleka does."
