Dikwena still values Chinyama

Platinum Stars coach Allan Frees has given his support to out-of-action striker Takesure Chinyama. The Orlando Pirates reject has not seen much action at the MTN8 champions lately, but Freese said he remains a vital member of the side that has now become a strong contender for every title in the PSL.

The robust striker, who joined Dikwena from Pirates at the start current season, has not enjoyed the kind of form that saw him score eight goals in nine league starts at the Soweto giants, who shocked many when they showed him the door.

“Chinyama is a professional player who only needs to work a bit harder at training to get a starting berth in the team. Otherwise, we still value his talent and he remains very important to the club.

“He is quite a good player. He has to compete with Henrico Botes, who is delivering in terms of goals and other players. You do not want to tamper too much with a winning team, but my advice to Chinyama is that he should not give up.”

Chinyama moved to Rustenburg partly as a replacement for departed stars like Thuso Phala, Enocent Mkhabela and Joseph Molangoane.
