Judas return could strike fear into Chiefs


Cup tormentor Judas Moseamedi is set to return in time for Maritzburg United's league match against Kaizer Chiefs at FNB Stadium on Saturday.

Moseamedi missed the 1-0 league win over Bidvest Wits at Bidvest Stadium on Wednesday night after picking up a knock at training this week.

The Team of Choice beat the Students in Johannesburg courtesy of a goal by Thabiso Kutumela to strengthen their position in the top six on the Absa Premiership log.

Moseamedi posted on Instagram that he 'fixed the country' the last time his side beat Chiefs in the Telkom Knockout semi-final last year, and it remains to be seen if the Limpopo-born striker will do to again.

For a player that was deemed to have failed to make the grade at Cape Town City before being sent to Free State Stars, it is very interesting how Moseamedi has risen to one of the most feared strikers in the country at the moment.

"Judas is not a quitter. He is a team player and first and foremost Judas plays for the team," says United coach Eric Tinkler.

"Judas doesn't play for Judas. That's one of the biggest problems in the world with strikers. They first play for themselves and then play for the team.

"Judas plays for the team first and foremost."
