And while his form may not see him feature regularly under Arthur Zwane, his role at the Glamour Boys according to Nhlanhla Kubheka.

Especially since the arrival of defender Zitha Kwinika, Mathoho may find little to no game-time under Arthur Zwane.

Despite this, Kaizer Chiefs will indeed have a fresh looking side next season. Meaning Mathoho looks set to play a vital ‘mentoring’ role to the club’s youngsters!

“You must keep those players who you think are influential in terms of guiding the youngsters and I think Mathoho fits that profile.” the former Kaizer Chiefs defender told Sowetan.

“Every team needs one or two senior players. Even though they might not play but their presence can do wonders in the camp.

“Mathoho is one of few senior guys left now. So maybe his role will be more of being a mentor to the young ones and the new ones.”
