Former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Jabu 'Pule' Mahlangu has expressed his disappointment at George Lebese, whom he feels hasn't improved over the past few seasons. 

The 28-year-old has been blowing hot and cold under Steve Komphela, and Shuffle believes Lebese should be the engine of the team by now given his experience. 

“I am disappointed with the way Lebese has done this season. He should be the engine of Amakhosi right now but he can’t find or keep his rhythm. Today he plays well, then the next match he is nowhere. I thought he would change,” Mahlangu told Isolezwe.

Mahlangu however, said all is not lost for Lebese, and he hopes the left-footed player can redeem himself and pull up his socks before it's too late. 

“Time is running out for him and he will be slowing down soon (because of age). I hope he can see his problem as well and will fix it soon because as it is now, he is no longer a dangerous player anymore. Whether he is there or not makes no difference in the team,” said the Amakhosi legend.

The Mamelodi-born player has managed three goals and two assists in the 17 matches he has featured in for Amakhosi this season.
