Cape Town - Former Kaizer Chiefs dribbling wizard Jabu Mahlangu has expressed his disappointment in the lack of progress made by midfielder George Lebese in the Premiership this season. 

The 26-year-old winger has increasingly fallen out of favour with the Soweto giants and has subsequently lost his starting berth in Steve Komphela's side, with his last start coming in the 1-1 draw against Cape Town City. 

The fan-favourite has registered 17 appearances in all competitions thus far netting three goals in the process, which is a stark contrast of his form last season which saw him form an integral part of the Chiefs side - ending the season with a career-best of eight goals.

"I am disappointed with the way Lebese has done this season," Mahlangu told Isolezwe.

"He should be the engine of Amakhosi right now but he can’t find or keep his rhythm. 

"Today he plays well, then the next match he is nowhere. I thought he would change.

"Time is running out for him and he will be slowing down soon (because of age). 

"I hope he can see his problem as well and will fix it soon because as it is now, he is no longer a dangerous player anymore. Whether he is there or not makes no difference in the team," he concluded.
