'Buchanan was better than Mido for Chiefs'


Ex-Kaizer Chiefs striker Daniel Matsau believes the club made a huge mistake by releasing midfielder Keagan Buchanan without giving him a proper chance.

The talented Buchanan, who is now with Maritzburg United, has rediscovered the form that made the Phefeni Glamour Boys sign him from Celtic, and he has proven to be a menace every time the KwaZulu-Natal side comes up against Chiefs.

"At the moment the player that I think Chiefs made a mistake to lose and I'm still crying for is this Buchanan guy from Maritzburg, I like that boy," Matsau tells KickOff.com.

"You know that boy, he can play 30 metres, 40 metres away... because now you can see [George] Maluleka is trying to do that but you know he can play ten balls of that but four will go straight to a person, six he will waste it.

"But Buchanan, he plays eight right and wastes two. So they need that kind of a player. But I'm not at Chiefs, I don't know why they released him.

"But for me that's how I see it you know, they lack that kind of a player who can play quick counter-attacks... because you know [Lebogang] Manyama, [Khama] Billiat, [Dumisani] Zuma with counter-attacks they are good those boys.

"So they need someone who can do that. I know Maluleka is trying to do that but he is losing many of them. So Buchanan is good on that. But for Chiefs, what they looking for, I don't know. Maybe they've got their reasons."
