Kaizer Chiefs Star Sends Message To Recently Retired Former EPL Star

South African has been said to be in a state of decline as a result of the drop in players in the top leagues overseas. We've seen a huge dip in recent years, however this also speaks of the progress made in terms of making the PSL more lucrative and worthwhile to stay for many players. This can be seen both positively and negatively which is why it is subjective to the individual.

This star joined Kaizer Chiefs following a short stint in India where he was under Stuart Baxter. He spent a good part of his career playing for what many may perceive as a small time and his and it is safe to say that he was a late bloomer. He has continued to perform at the highest level for his new team despite fans raising concerns over his age.

Cole Alexander took to social media to send a message to a recently retired who many will remember from playing for Newcastle United in the English Premier League. Steven Taylor called time on his football career and announced his retirement at the age of 35 years old. Cole got the opportunity of playing with him during his time with Odisha FC in India.

This was certainly a teaching moment for the star as he got a little opportunity to play football in a different territory after being confined in the PSL. He didn't spend much time in Asia, however it is clear that it was enough for him to be able to forge and make relationships. This is something that he will have for the rest of his life and most probably will have a friend the next time he visits London.

Cole Alexander walked straight to the starting line up for Kaizer Chiefs after signing. The star is a regular for Amakhosi nd he has played in all of the games so far this season apart from suspension. His relationship with the coach is clearly beyond the club and it will be interesting to how it will progress with time following a round of poor results.
