Mapeza ready to unleash new signing

FC Platinum coach Norman Mapeza is likely to field his new signing Thomas Chideu for the first time, when the play Yadah on Saturday.

Chideu missed the 1-2 home defeat against ZPC Kariba last weekend. The defeat was the defending champions’ second this season, and first since June 2016.

Speaking at a press conference on Thursday ahead of their Match-day 19 clash, Mapeza said: “I think Thomas’ papers are here, so it is just up to us coaches if we want him to start against Yadah.”

Chideu was still to get his international clearance from the South Africa Football Association.

Meanwhile, the coach believes his team needs to improve when dealing with set pieces.

“We need to work on the way to defend set pieces because of the way we conceded goals against ZPC Kariba, but I am not really much worried about that. We need to rectify all those problems and hope for the positive results.”
