Kaizer Chiefs left back Tsepo Masilela has admitted his biggest worry at the club.
The 32-year-old is currently on the road to full fitness, after being sidelined by an ankle injury since August last year and says that the team’s trophy drought has been his biggest worry.
In the player’s absence, left back Philani Zulu has seemed to cement his place in Head Coach Steve Komphela’s starting line-up, with the club still having Sibusiso Khumalo and Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya in that position.
Speaking to the media at the Nedbank Cup quarter-final draw, Masilela admitted that, the competition in the left back position does not bother him but his biggest concern is the fact that the team hasn’t been doing well enough to win trophies.
“Competition has always been there throughout my career, it is not something new, he (Zulu) has done well and obviously you still have Sibusiso Khumalo who can play that position and he has been fit, it isn’t only about Zulu, it’s Khumalo and the young boy, Ntiya-Ntiya. So, competition has always been there. I just want to be fit and available for selection and we will see from there,” Masilela told the media.
“It doesn’t worry me at all, what worries me is that we haven’t won a trophy for the past two seasons, I am one person (where) I am at the age where I put the team first, if Zulu does well and we win trophies, we are all happy, the fans are happy. So, I am not really worried about (that),” he added.
