Lebese vows to work hard and help Kaizer Chiefs win

The skilful winger was relegated to the bench against Maritzburg United on Saturday, but came in later to score AmaKhosi’s second goal on the same night

Following Kaizer Chiefs’ 2-0 win over Maritzburg United last Saturday, midfielder George Lebese believes they have a squad that can compete at any given time.

Lebese, who has been a regular starter under Stuart Baxter since last season, came off the bench to put the final nail in the Maritzburg United coffin, says everyone is fighting to be in the starting line-up.

“We have a competitive squad and we are all fighting for a place in the team,” Lebese told the Chiefs website.

The 24-year-old attacking winger expressed his delight at registering his name on the score sheet this season, and he has also vowed to keep working hard.

“I was glad to be given an opportunity and that I was able to score my first goal this season. I am going to continue to work hard to improve my game,” he said.

Lebese says his objective is to always contribute positively towards Chiefs’ success, and he wants to give more than he did in their previous season.

“My objective is to always help the team and on a personal level, I want to continue to improve and give more to the team than I did last season,” he said.

AmaKhosi are in Bloemfontein to face Celtic tonight [Tuesday], and they are buoyed by the return of Eric Mathoho who missed their previous encounter due to injury. Knowledge Musona has also been declared fit to face Siwelele after some concerns over his health.
