Kaizer Chiefs defender Tsepo Masilela believes he remains at his best as he grinds down to dealing with the competition that has been brought by the arrival of Sibusiso Khumalo at the club.
Since joining Chiefs in June 2012, Masilela has found himself having to deal with waiting in the queue for the first time behind Khumalo.
Yet the experienced left-back feels he is still has it in him.
“I think I am still at my best,” says Masilela, who has nine league appearances this season while Khumalo has 11.
“I am still at Kaizer Chiefs, a big team, and competition is tough. I am still okay, I am happy to be still at Kaizer Chiefs and representing the team. For the past four seasons I was playing regularly under Stuart [Baxter] and also last season, so it is the first time in a long time that the coach has decided to change.
“You have to understand as a professional that the team comes first and if the coach feels that S’bu [Khumalo] should start, I have to understand and support S’bu in the team. But it has been an unfamiliar one,” he explains.
Masilela was recently handed a one-year contract extension with an option to renew for another year.
