Tinkler rates centre-back
There were many heroes on the pitch for Maritzburg United in their 2-1 Telkom Knockout semifinal victory over Kaizer Chiefs at the Mbombela Stadium‚ but coach Eric Tinkler says he was hugely impressed by centre-back Rushine de Reuck. The coach was expecting the direct‚ long-call style from AmaKhosi‚ but says he had the perfect player to counter it. “We knew they would come … with Castro and Nurkovic we knew they would look to profit from the second ball ... But Rushine is one of the best young centre-backs in the country right now‚ by a long shot.”..
