Maluleka on his Chiefs debut

Posted: 24 January 2014 Time: 03:24 pm

George Maluleka says it was an "indescribable feeling" to make his Kaizer Chiefs debut in the 1-0 win over Mamelodi Sundowns at Loftus Versveld last night.

Maluleka, who started the top-of-the table clash, joined Amakhosi in a high-profile move from SuperSport United at the beginning of the month.

"I felt very good and it's an indescribable feeling," Maluleka said of his Chiefs bow to the club's official website.

"I think I did well in the preparations after joining the club a few weeks ago but I didn't expect to start last night."

Maluleka revealed Glamour Boys assistant coach Doctor Khumalo and fellow midfielder Reneilwe Letsholonyane gave him helpful advice ahead of the showdown.

"My teammates have been supportive since I arrived here," Maluleka said. "Before the game, Doctor gave me a few supportive tips. I think his influence played a big role in my performance last night.

"'Yeye' (Letsholonyane) also told me to relax and enjoy my game.

"I expected to be nervous but at least I didn't get as nervous as I thought. My first touch was good but it all went horrible as I was disposed and Sundowns almost benefited by nearly scoring a goal as a result of that. From there on I built up confidence and started to play well." 

The 25-year-old added: "It was tough and tackles were flying as you would expect in a clash of two teams gunning for the league. We competed well against a tough side and that must have confirmed our intention of what we want to achieve this season."

I was impressed with you dude on your debut, unlike most debutantes, you were visible and your contribution was noted. You kept it simple, bar that mistake, you did very well for yourself. Very soon you will shine again!

Stepping onto the Loftus Stadium pitch in front of a capacity crowd:

"I expected to be nervous but at least I didn't get as nervous as I thought. My first touch was good but it all went horrible as I was disposed and Sundowns almost benefited by nearly scoring a goal as a result of that. From thereon I built up confidence and started to play well," said the player known as 'Y-Tjukutja' in soccer circles.

Copy and Pasted from Kaizer chiefs webside.... I have called you a legend before and It's not rocket science to know you are.  I mean you are WELL KNOWN in Orlando. so I repeat you are legend Nkosi.... #Respect

Mamelodi Sundowns PRO Kabelo Mosito has told Goalthat striker Katlego Mphela will only join Kaizer Chiefs at the end of his contract.

AmaKhosi were engaged in talks with the Brazilians for Mphela’s early release after the 29-year-old had signed a pre-contract with the PSL champions.

However, it seems like the Naturena-based outfit has failed to reach an agreement with the Tshwane giants, and Mphela will only complete his move to Chiefs next season.    

“The two teams were negotiating, but let me assure you now that Mphela will only join Chiefs at the end of his contract with us,” Mosito told Goal.

The South African international missed Sundowns’ mid-season tour to Zambia, and the club later confirmed that Mphela disappeared two days prior to their trip.

Nonetheless, ‘Killer’ is currently training with the rest of his teammates in Chloorkop although it remains to be seen if he will ever don the Sundowns shirt.  

“Mphela is training with the team, as he continues to honour his contract,” added Mosito.

Chiefs will pay no transfer fee for Mphela, who will fill the void left by Lehlohonolo Majoro. Majoro has since signed a pre-contract with arch-rivals Orlando Pirates

You did khosi. Again a bow in your direction from me for this perfect fit of a nickname. Last night i found myself screaming "Y-tjukutja" from the top of my lungs even when he didn't have the ball.

Never before have i been this excited about seeing a player wear the Chiefs jersey. Thank you again Phefeni boy for the Nickname, thank you again George Maluleka for joining this great team and thank you bobby. Love&Peace.
