Ramahlwe Mphahlele is now waiting for an answer from his team, Kaizer Chiefs. He wants them to release him – as his strength is being wasted away by him warming up the bench in every match. Now, we are waiting on a response from the club’s administration as well as coach Ernst Middendorp. The current situation in Kaizer Chiefs could result in the need for all those players who are at this moment, trying to exit the team.
Rama has had a good start of career with Amakhosi. However, in recent times he is rarely touching the field. He is not alone in this story as Peter Matshitse, the former Kaizer Chiefs defender was in a situation just like this.
The 48-year-old player was once a member of Bafana Bafana and played CAF Champions League football. For that reason, he believes that his experience would give a massive contribution to their game. He believes that his place is not in the second fiddle to the likes of Kgotso Moleko and Reeve Frosler.
Ramahlwe Mphahlele is not young anymore – he needs to hurry up
“He will need to move if he wants to play, I mean, he is not young anymore. Sometimes this can be a player’s decision, some of them are just happy to get paid and not doing anything. I can only advise him to move forward because he is not getting any game time. So if that is what he wants, why is he still there? They will give game time to inexperienced young players but they leave him on the side. He has so much experience behind him, having played for the national team. That means he is no longer in the plan.” – the former Amakhosi defender stated about the case.
Ramahlwe Mphahlele has to move while he still has some time to perform. Football is a vicious sport and older players are easily tossed out. This national team player is paying the price by missing all that game time so if he doesn’t find his place soon – his career will come to an end.
However, not all the teams and coaches are the same, so he may be fitting into another club. What do you think, is it the time to go for Rama? Or should he keep playing?
