Lazarous Kambole of Kaizer Chiefs against Primeiro de Agosto, December 2020
GOAL chooses a best XI combined side of players from Amakhosi, Bucs and Masandawana who could perhaps do with a permanent or loan switch

With big squads at Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns, there are a bunch of players struggling for game-time who may want to consider moving on.

  • Ricardo Goss, Mamelodi Sundowns, January 2021,

    GOALKEEPER: Ricardo Goss (Mamelodi Sundowns)

    Goss was in the Bafana Bafana squad during his time at Bidvest Wits, but is now behind Denis Onyango and probably also Kennedy Mweene in the pecking order. Onyango and Mweene are nearing the end of their careers, so perhaps a loan move would suit Goss.

  • Siphesihle Ndlovu of Orlando Pirates shields Nkosingiphile Ngcobo of Kaizer Chiefs.

    RIGHT-BACK: Siphesihle Ndlovu (Orlando Pirates)

    The former Maritzburg man is more of a central midfielder, but has also performed admirably at right-back. He's struggled for game-time though (three league appearances) at an age - 25 - when he should be playing regularly.

  • Bangaly Soumahoro of Mamelodi Sundowns vs AS Vita Club

    CENTRE-BACK: Bangaly Soumahoro (Mamelodi Sundowns)

    Soumahoro is yet to play in the league this term has been languishing outside of the Brazilians' squad for a number of years now - at 30-years-old he could do with a new challenge.

  • Ramahlwe Mphahlele Daniel Akpeyi Kaizer Chiefs Champions League final

    CENTRE-BACK: Ramahlwe Mphahlele (Kaizer Chiefs)

    The veteran has given Chiefs great service but is behind Eric Mathoho and Daniel Cardoso in the pecking order and also has to compete with the up-and-coming Siyabonga Ngezana as well as new signings Austin Dube and Njabulo Ngcobo.

  • Sibusiso Mabiliso, Kaizer Chiefs, September 2021

    LEFT-BACK: Sibusiso Mabiliso (Kaizer Chiefs)

    After a bright start following his move from AmaZulu, Mabiliso has fallen down the pecking order and has barely been seen in the last couple of months as Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya has revived his career.

  • Ben Motshwari, Orlando Pirates & Dumisani Zuma, Kaizer Chiefs, October 2018

    RIGHT WING: Dumisani Zuma (Kaizer Chiefs)

    Disciplinary issues have seen Zuma shut out the action, which is a pity, because on his day he can be a match winner.

  • George Maluleka Sundowns

    CENTRE-MID: George Maluleka (Mamelodi Sundowns)

    The experienced campaigner's career has been on pause since leaving Kaizer Chiefs for Sundowns, but he surely still has a lot to offer in the PSL.

  • Nkanyiso Zungu, Orlando Pirates, August 2021

    CENTRE-MID: Nkanyiso Zungu (Orlando Pirates)

    Broke into the team last season under previous coach Josef Zinnbauer, but the former Stellenbosch FC midfield schemer has been an outsider this term and has played only once in the Premiership.

  • Tebogo Tlolane, Orlando Pirates, October 2020

    LEFT WING: Tebogo Tlolane (Orlando Pirates)

    Enjoyed an excellent loan spell at Maritzburg United, but has barely made an impact since returning to the Buccaneers and had played in only two league games this season.

  • Lindokuhle Mtshali, Golden Arrows & Gaston Sirino, Mamelodi Sundowns, August 2021

    STRIKER: Gaston Sirino (Mamelodi Sundowns)

    A real match winner, Sirino has enjoyed some stellar seasons with Masandawana, but is currently battling to get any game-time. He was linked previously to Egyptian against Al Ahly although the talk on that front has gone quiet.

  • Lazarous Kambole of Kaizer Chiefs challenged by Ntsikelelo Nyauza of Orlando Pirates.

    STRIKER: Lazarous Kambole (Kaizer Chiefs)

    The Zambian international''s career has hit the skids with Amakhosi – he’s barely played in three seasons and he badly needs to reignite his career.
