Lamontville Golden Arrows player Nqubeko Magoso has described his teammate Samkelo Mzolo as a quality player on and off the field. Mzolo was voted by fans in 2022 to represent Amabutho in the DStv Compact Cup.

Amabutho was made up of all teams from KwaZulu-Natal that are playing in the DStv Premiership. The only team that was not available was Richards Bay FC as they were playing in the Motsepe Foundation Championship.


Magoso says ‘Masaladi’ is a humble person who also fights for the Arrows badge.

“Masaladi [Samkelo Mzolo] is a quality player on and off the pitch,” Magoso told LimSportsZone.

Mzolo made his debut for the first team in their 0-0 draw against Chippa United FC at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Saturday. He came in as a sub in the last 10 minutes of the match.
