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!
