Chiefs' new youngster 'talented', 'not flashy'

Solly Luvhengo has some concerns about Kaizer Chiefs defensive signing Lorenzo Gordinho

Posted: 6 February 2013 Time: 12:20 pm

Amajita coach Solly Luvhengo says Kaizer Chiefs' new defender Lorenzo Gordinho has a lot of talent, although he has some concerns.

Amakhosi have promoted the 18-year-old to the first team and Luvhengo, who coached Gordinho in the Under-20 national team, believes he has what it takes to crack it at Chiefs.

"He is a central defender, but he can also play right-back," Luvhengo says. "He is a decent player. Lorenzo is strong physically and goes about his job without being flashy."

Luvhengo adds: "My only worry is that he hasn't played football for a long time. He was here and there on trials and for a player of around 15 to 18 years old, that's the important years of football for him. So he hasn't done that.

"When I took him to Nigeria in October for the second leg of the 2013 African Youth Championship qualifiers, I said I was giving him a chance to revive his career.

"I think at the time he was playing for an academy at age 18 with that talent! He should have been playing top-flight football. He will struggle to crack the first XI at Chiefs because there is [Mulomowandau] Mathoho, Tefu Mashamaite, and Morgan Gould is back, but when he gets his chance he must use it.

"That's the same thing I said to Itumeleng Khune and Senzo Meyiwa years ago ... these boys have taken their chances and now it is up to Lorenzo," he adds.

This farmer will never play a single game at Chiefs

Another co-farmer of his, Keeagan Ritchie will be number 3 when Tinashe Negomasha's patient(Jambo) recovers...

Ask Brian Amidu, they said they same thing about him...he never even touch a ball in an official game or just being on the park

Some idiots will really judge him even before they see him in action... I'm not saying he is a good player I haven't seen him in action so all I can do is to give him the benefit of the doubt! U just hear that he is a chiefs player and suddenly he is a 'cow'? Wow...

==============================================================

'Decent' sound too mediocre to me. This coach meant that the boy can be compared with below average Bongani Khumalo.

You will never see him in action...

Mina i have seen him, and if you read this article Solly says he got his concerns, clearly that can not be a good sign for Chiefs...this boy is more of a farmer than a soccer player

Did you see Brian Amidu in action at Chiefs?
