Kaizer Chiefs 'rare breed' Dube in mould of Orlando Pirates defender Maela - Mashamaite

The 2014/15 PSL Footballer of the Season described the new Amakhosi signing as a solid defender, who will improve the Soweto giants' defence

Former Kaizer Chiefs defender Tefu Mashamaite says the club's new signing Austin Dube is in the mould of Orlando Pirates star Innocent Maela.

The lanky defender, who can operate as a centre back and left-back, was snapped up by Amakhosi from National First Division side Richards Bays in the current transfer window.

Mashamaite, who captained Chiefs to the 2014/15 PSL title, believes the Soweto giants will benefit from having a left-footed centre back like Dube, aged 28.
