New Kaizer Chiefs star could dribble up his own backside – Former coach


Kaizer Chiefs fans might need to be a bit patient with the new signings, especially Kamohelo Mahlatsi.


As The South African website previously reported, the 24-year-old Kamohelo Mahlatsi is among Amakhosi’s seven new signings.

The SuperSport United academy graduate from Sebokeng, Gauteng is nicknamed “Nyaope” for a reason. 

The attacking midfielder is capable of making his opponents look like they’re on Nyaope when he dribbles past them.

But it can be too much sometimes.

“I gave him the freedom because of his ability to go out and play,” his former Swallows FC coach Dylan Kerr said via Goal.

“He overcomplicates things and I used to say he could dribble up his own backside if he could.”

Kerr added to reveal where Mahlatsi needs to improve to become a top player: scoring goals, which is almost the same challenge facing nearly every attacking midfielder in Mzansi.

“Potentially he is a game-changer, [but] he needs to get better in the final third, especially in and around the box with his decision making,” the Englishman concluded.
