In the latest KICK OFF magazine: Jali – is he arrogant or just misunderstood? Why is Itu stuck in SA? Phala says he wasn't a failure at Chiefs & Downs ... and how did Benjani sign for Chippa?

A bumper 100-page April edition of KICK OFF magazine is on sale now – and answers all the questions you have been asking!

Is ANDILE JALI arrogant, or is he just misunderstood?

The Orlando Pirates man says it is not his job to make people understand him, while coaches and friends paint a complex picture of football’s most complicated character.

All the national team talk has been around the midfielder’s recent Bafana Bafana exclusions, but in reality he had only played one game – as a late sub – in the six matches before Gordon Igesund became head coach.

Still, his views on the tactician pull no punches.

 

Why is ITU KHUNE still stuck in SA?

You’ve probably wondered on countless occasions why Itumeleng Khune is not playing in Europe yet.

The Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper – and new Bafana Bafana captain – is definitely good enough, so what is stopping him? High price tag?

Too comfortable at Kaizer Chiefs?

We speak to the experts who give us the answers.

 

Will Amakhosi finally get their hands on the Premiership trophy?

It looks likely, and there are at least three very good reasons why that could happen, which you can tell just by looking at Chiefs’ defence.

The Glamour Boys have a treble of the country’s best centre-backs and that could prevent Pirates from running rampant again.

Tefu Mashamaite dishes the details on why their defence is the best form of attack.

 

PHALA: I was not a failure at Chiefs and Downs!

Thuso Phala will be a SuperSport United player at the start of next season.

He tells us how he dealt with disappointment at Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns, and how he learned to ignore people who labeled him a “failure.”

How the hell did Chippa United secure Benjani’s signature?

The former Portsmouth attacker reveals all.

 

How did SUNDOWNS sign 6 foreigners?

Mamelodi Sundowns have six foreigners in their team, despite the League only allowing five players from outside the borders per club. How did they manage to do it? We let you in on their dirty little secret.

 

We have unfortunately been forced, by rising costs, to increase the cover price to R14 – but we are sure that once you have your hands on a copy you will agree it is worth every cent.

It is ONLY the best Players who make Cover Pages of Kick Off

Jali has made the Highest Cover Page stories in his 4 years as a Professional more than Yeye,Nyawana,Gould,Parker and many others

Lebese has been in PSL for 8 years . . . . . . . never made a cover page of any Magazine NOT even the Chiefs one same as Masango who is almost a decade on the bench

I think there more to it as to why GI doesnt select this brilliant young player. Arrogant? Many player who play in foreign countries are arrogant and yet the do well for their countries...like abooBalotelli, Rooney, Cristiano, etc...so to me I think its not about Jali being arrogant...
We all know what a gem he is...GI needs to clear the air once and for all to the public

Khune don't huv what it take to go to Europe because he lack maturity and he also short while at Euro height count most maybe Spain but wonder if they rate our players there so I don't expect any player from this country to go straight to big team or play for Barqa, Real Madrid, Chelsea, Arsenal and Man utd

As for Andile only Gordon know and he think he kill the young king but destroy South Africa progress at international level and if you want to be best at Central Mid you must be arrogant look at Gattuso then who will understand what I mean. If Bafana don't qualify for Brazil under this group who will huv last laugh Gordon or AJ 15?

My fear is that eventually GI will call this man up but then Jali will be under immense pressure to prove to everyone that he deserved to be in BB all along

The other situation is that if called his every step in camp and on the pitch will be watched and Gordon may set him up for failure so that the next time he is not called up nobody will dare question him (GI)

My wish is for the Media not to try pull a Malema(Jali) and Zuma (GI) situation out of this

Jali never requested to be in BB
It is the outside observers who are pushing the Agenda for him
If GI feels Jali is not in his Plans FINE perhaps the next Coach will like Jali . . . . . . . .REMEMBER:NO COACH IS PERMANENT!!

GI wont be in the BB set up for long, he will fail to qualify for Brasil and he has he has already failed in AFCON at home.

AJ15 The Lion KING will have the last laugh, In Lusaka the fear him, In Egypt they know him very well and in Niger he fought like The Lion of the jungle.

Kick Off please promulgate how PSL coaches have responded to Jali's inclusion, i want to read what Pitso,Barker n RDS in particular maybe Steve Kompela.
