“I think Lebo [Manyama] has done well this season, and the goalkeeper of Chiefs [Daniel Akpeyi] as well. [Gaston] Sirino has also done well, and Denis Onyango and Hlompho Kekana," 'Mshishi' tells

“I think there are a couple of players who have done well so far this season, even the goalkeeper from Maritzburg [Richard Ofori] has done well, and their centre-back [Rushine De Reuck] I think has done well also.

“Obviously, I’ll put myself there also, but I think my injuries this season were a bit of a set-back for me.”
