Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs legend Linda Buthelezi believes George Lebese lacks ambition and has allowed his career to stagnate at the club.
Lebese has been with Amakhosi since turning professional in 2008, but only started to establish himself in the first team last season under former head coach Stuart Baxter.
Since Baxter departed the club for Turkish side Genclerbirligi, the midfielder has again seemed to go off the boil and has failed to impress under new head coach Steve Komphela.
Buthelezi says, at 26-years-old, Lebese should be reaching the summit of his potential and become a real leader for the club, but is disappointed with what he has seen from the winger.
"I like this boy but, I must admit, I have been disappointed by his football career so far. I expected a lot from George. I even thought he would be a regular Bafana Bafana player by now," he told Soccer Laduma.
"A player's behaviour and body language on the field tells you a lot about him. The boy is in a comfort zone and lacks ambition.
"You know, people look at how you dress and it influences their minds. If you have sagging shorts, for instance, not many people will take you seriously."
