Aaron Mokoena v Ibrahima Sonko? Who is the better defender? That is what MickTait asked and this is the answer MT got – read on for more.
A very small poll it may have been controversial depending how the results went.
Choose your preference. Who is the better centre half?
Result. Aaron Mokoena 73% Ibrahima Sonko 27%.
Really as captain of South Africa (if he has not been dropped) it should have ended up with ‘Mok of the week’ at 100%, however I have lost count how many times his positional play has cost us goals, I’m sure someone upon ‘vital’ will know but it is not single figures of that I am sure.
Whereas Sonko who lets be kind has his own problems knows how to clear the ball, true it does not always go where he meant it to but at least he can find row Z even if he was not aiming that particular row Z.
The biggest advantage to playing Mokoena in defence at least it does not screw up our Midfield.
