Jabu for Chiefs?

Posted: 7 November 2008 Time: 12:27

Jabu Mahlangu is back in town – and the rumour is that he is set to re-sign for Kaizer Chiefs.

Earlier this week word on the street was that Moroka Swallows were poised to sign him on his return from Sweden, where his club Oesters just missed out on promotion to the second tier.

But Swallows management moved quickly to douse those rumours. Now it is to Naturena that all eyes are turning.

Mahlangu made his name at Chiefs, as Jabu Pule, before following Muhsin Ertugral to Austria where they teamed up at SV Mattersburg in 2004.

After a promising beginning, it all turned sour, and after Ertugral lost his job as head coach, Pule went off the rails.

He has since made a series of failed attempts to reboot his career, but the theory on the street is that Chiefs mght be tempted to reunite him with Ertugral, if only to keep him away from opposing teams.

May 2002: Selected to represent South Africa in the 2002 World Cup finals in Korea/Japan.

This is another stunt pulled at Chiefs not by Jabu but by Journalists who knows that they will be selling Newspapers by following Jabu's life and starting their headlines with Chiefs name. He can't be pure and good this instant. He needs to prove to us that he won't leave us in the state he left us "The state where i hated him like hell" and i still do. We made him and he shamed us.

I am individual but i think he's gonna derail our plan to win the league this season as the headlines will be written Kaizer Chiefs star this & that. But i still remember the days of "Ngwana wa tshwenya" ask Alex "Besoek" Shakoane if he is unavailable.
