Kaitano Happy With Gifted Midfielder
Posted: 18 January 2021
SuperSport United head coach Kaitano Tembo was visibly happy with a point against nemesis Mamelodi Sundowns FC over the weekend after their goalless draw.
Nonetheless, he was more happier with the performance of gifted midfielder Sipho Mbule, telling The Beautiful Game when asked about the Free State-born star, saying;
“Coming to Sipho Mbule I think he could’ve completed the game but because we just needed to try and manage the game right at the end there, at the death. So, he was the only one we could think of…you know to take off.
“We want to have more numbers in defence and that’s why we made that decision to take Sipho off but it has nothing to do with his fitness. I think he has been doing well, and he is playing consistently in terms of defending and attacking so I’m happy with him,” he concluded.
Kaitano also explained that he is seeing some form of consistency from Mbule in terms of his defensive and attacking play, which can only improve the 22-year-old mercurial attacker.
