So far‚ Andrianarimanana has played a total of ten matches since he joined Chiefs in July‚ scoring one league goal in his first full start against Black Leopards two weeks ago.
“Dax is something special‚” Middendorp said of the midfielder who celebrated his 28th birthday on Sunday.
“He gives us another dimension in the midfield play in terms contributing with clever passing. He’s good in keeping the ball‚ being available for a pass with good spacing.”
Middendorp said there are a few factors that led to the decision to bide his time before giving Andrianarimanana an opportunity in the starting XI.
“I could have brought him a little bit earlier (in the team)‚ but the language is still a little bit of a question mark‚” he said.
