Former Kaizer Chiefs defender nominated for big awards in USA

Teenage Hadebe, a former Kaizer Chiefs defender, is been nominated for a Major League Soccer end-of-year award, barely four months after joining the Houston Dynamo from the same club.

Hadebe joined the MLS at the beginning of July after a successful season with Turkish Super Lig team Yeni Malatyaspor, which he had previously played for with the Kansas City Chiefs.

After 17 appearances for Major League Soccer (MLS) Western Conference team Houston Dynamo, the Zimbabwean international has been nominated for two trophies at the MLS end of year awards ceremony in 2021.

Hadebe's name appears on the hats awarded to the MLS Defender of the Year and the MLS Newcomer of the Year, respectively.

For the first time in the club's history, a player from the team has been shortlisted for either of the two awards.

In spite of the fact that Houston finished last in the Western Conference and failed to qualify for the final series of the playoffs, Hadebe made his presence felt throughout the season by putting in excellent shifts.

In order to be considered for the honors, fans must vote online until Monday, November 8, after which the Major League Soccer will reveal a list of contenders before to the commencement of the Audi 2021 MLS Cup Play-Offs.

During his two-year stint with the Chiefs, the 26-year-old appeared in 39 matches.

Hadabe, one of the highest-paid players at Houston, has missed the club's previous four games due to an ankle injury, which will also keep him out of the team's 2022 Qatar FIFA World Cup qualifier against Bafana Bafana next week.

Houston was defeated in each of the previous four games in which Hadebe was absent.
