Fitness first, Chabangu told

Moroka Swallows have Lerato 'Chabangu in their plans

Moroka Swallows still have errant striker Lerato 'Ace' Chabangu in their plans, on condition that he can get into the fitness levels that the club desires in their fight against relegation. 

Chabangu has been told that he will not be immediately signed due to the fact that he is unfit, having played just seven games in the last two years – making just two substitute appearances in the League last season.   According to influential authorities at the club, they are bargaining to have Chabangu ready to be involved in the last 10 League games of the season.   "When Chabangu gets fit after a month, we have plans to use him in the last 10 games of the season where we feel if he can play at least 30 minutes in each of those he will make a difference in our team. But right now he first needs to cross the hurdle of getting fit after which we will then bring him into the team," says the Swallows source.   Chabangu – who is currently under a strict fitness programme at the club – has also been made aware by coach Gordon Igesund of the fact that he first needs to work on his fitness for now after which he will then be offered a contract.   With Igesund having gotten the best out of the former AmaGlug-glug star during their days at Sundowns, the veteran coach still believes there is hope in Chabangu getting back to his best as long as he is fit.    The 25 year-old striker has battled with a series of demons while he has also been unfortunate with injuries along the way.

Players need to know that PSL teams now are more professional in their approach. A talent only won't help you in the PSL, you still need to be discipline,hard working , respect yourself ,respect the next person, your team and be a role model to the up coming youngsters, like abo Steven Pienaar,Bongani Khumalo, Teko Modise,Siphiwe Tshabalala..etc

If you think you're best "thing" in football then you're on the wrong avenue my boy.

Look at your yourself and your friend Masibusane Zongo,he's no longer warming the bench @ Vasco now BUT he's burning the bench

Maybe you'll remember these idiots Nuaghty Mokoena,Juniour Khanye,Skappie Malatsi,Jabu Pule, OJ Mabizela
