In other news, we have discussed what former Stellenbosch FC midfielder brings to Kaizer Chiefs FC football club with our analyser Senzo Sambo.
“Kaizer Chiefs FC have Ox Mthethwa in their six role yet his work all goes to waste. The way. Kaizer Chiefs setup in that Central Midfield role is so disappointing. Ox Mthethwa does hos primarily duties very well his role is to win back ball possession and set up the ball for a no.8, but who is a the no.8? The number 8 is Yusuf Maart or Edson Castillo two players who are not supposed to be even playing that role, they are both modern no 6 that is why when Kaizer Chiefs get the ball in tight areas they cannot get out of such conundrum, because the no.8 cannot play in tight angles.
“While you have to praise Edson Castillo’s ability to progress the ball better and make later runs inside the box, his ability on the pockets is very poor that alone shows he can never play that 8 role. It’s so unfortunate somehow i blame our supporters Castillo was doing well as a 6 scoring goal giving us a little bit of ball playing capacity they said he must move to no.8 now we are struggling.
“A team without an original no.8 is bound to struggle and lose alot of balls some teams abroad like Arsenal use th Wingback(Zinchenko to drop into that midfield role add more ball playing capacity of an 8 especially when they start with two CDMs(Rice and Jorginho or Partey).
“Thina we lineup like this
A traditional Six, in Ox who by nature doesn’t need a CDM next to him because Ox gives you the whole midfield, in terms of breaking the lines. Now when you assign a more defensively aligned player what is he supposed to do that Ox can’t? When you start a defensively aligned player next to him the attack struggles. I really wish our coaching problems improve guys i really wish that happens.” – he said.
