Shongwe sheds light On The Genesis Of Dube’s Kaizer Chiefs Woes

Kaizer Chiefs legend William Shongwe has suggested that Austin Dube was not ready for a move to Amakhosi and that it is the reason he is currently struggling. The center-back has not managed to get enough playing time at the club in the ongoing campaign, leading many to doubt whether he will remain with the Glamour Boys beyond this season.

Dube had been a rock at Richards Bay before joining Chiefs, managing 17 appearances across all competitions, starting 12 times. However, he has struggled to make an impact this season, making only one appearance in the loss against Golden Arrows in the Premier Soccer League after Edmilson Dove’s injury.

According to Shongwe, Dube was excellent at Richards Bay FC when he was there in the National First Division (NFD), but he just never got going from the time he arrived at Kaizer Chiefs. “I just don’t think that he graduated to the DStv Premiership,” said Shongwe, as quoted by Far Post.

With a year remaining in his contract, it will be tougher for Dube next season, considering the fact that Chiefs have already snapped up Given Msimango and Botswana international Thatayaone Ditlhokwe. Siyabonga Ngezana, Zitha Kwinika, Eric Mathoho, Njabulo Ngcobo, and Dove are other centre-backs at Arthur Zwane’s proposal.

Given his recent struggles at Chiefs, it may be in Dube’s best interest to consider starting a search for a new team. This will provide him with an opportunity to play regularly and revive his career.

In conclusion, Dube’s struggles at Chiefs could be attributed to his readiness for top-flight football. Shongwe’s assessment of the situation serves as a reminder that not all players are cut out for the top level, and some may require more time to develop before making the jump to a big club. As for Dube, he still has time to turn his fortunes around and make a name for himself in the PSL. A move to a club where he can get more playing time may be the key to his revival.
