Cape Town - Golden Arrows goalkeeper Maximilian Mbaeva has been one of the stars for the club this season, but his coach, Serame Letsoaka, insists he is not the number one gloveman in the squad.
The Namibian has kept two clean sheets in his five games to date, compared with the two in three games by Philani Zikalala.
Abafana Bes'thende have one of the better defences in the Absa Premiership altogether, and before losing 3-1 to Kaizer Chiefs in their last outing, had conceded a mere six goals in eight matches, the joint-best return.
They now have given away nine goals in nine games, putting them fifth in the best defensive list.
But Letsoaka revealed he does not have a specific number one, praising the others in his squad, including national under-23 goalkeeper Ricardo Goss and Nkosingiphile Gumede, a recent call-up to the Bafana Bafana squad that played in the CHAN qualifiers.
"I have four goalkeepers and in my opinion they are all number one," the Arrows coach said.
"Gumede, Goss and the two we have used so far, all four are the first choice in their positions.
"The competition is healthy between them. You will recall we played one game against Sundowns and we won, but the goalkeeper on the day made a lot of errors, so we changed them for the next game.
"This was done so the goalkeeper can go back and work with the technical staff on those errors.
But that's what it's all about - learning and improving. Any of the four goalkeepers can play on any given day."
Arrows are presently seventh in the Premiership table and have a game in hand.
