In-form Lebese gives Chiefs hope

By Tshepang Mailwane | Oct 19, 2016 | COMMENTS [ 1 ]

There is no doubting the quality of George Lebese, but he has often been let down by a lack of consistency and, at times, injury.

Having found his form for Kaizer Chiefs in recent weeks, the left winger would like to get to a level where he performs weekly and possibly even win some of the big individual awards come the end of the season. He's bagged two goals in the last four matches and he's crossing fingers that there's lots more to come.

"It's every players' wish to be consistent. I am looking to be consistent," he said.

"I am working hard with the new fitness coach (Marco Munhoz) to strengthen every part of my body which was my main set back last season. I want to try to avoid, as much as possible, injuries such as groin and muscle tears. I am working hard on them so that they do not return because last season they slowed down my momentum. I am wiser this season and I am more careful."

Amakhosi need Lebese to be on form again when they face Maritzburg United in the Telkom Knockout last 16 at FNB Stadium on Saturday [8.15pm]. Chiefs have already beaten Maritzburg 2-0 last month at the same venue.

That victory is part of Amakhosi's four-match winning streak and they are keen to transfer that form into the knockout competition.

"It's going to be a difficult match. We have already played them, so they are going to come hungrier and we have to match them.

"The results were not coming in the first few games, but we are winning games now and we are scoring goals. We want to continue winning games," said Lebese.

Chiefs coach Steve Komphela is hoping Lebese can stay injury free this season because they need his goals and assists.

"We know that with George, at any given time, we can get goals," said Komphela.

The Knockout kicks off tonight with Cape Town City taking on Bloemfontein Celtic (Cape Town Stadium, 7.30pm)
