INFO:
Khumalo is a former central or attacking midfielder. He spent the majority of his career at Kaizer Chiefs, making 397 appearances and scoring 75 goals from 1987 to 2002. In between, he had short experiences with Ferro Carril Oeste in 1995 and Columbus Crew in 1996-97. He capped for South Africa 50 times from 1992 to 2001, scoring 9 goals and winning the 1996 Africa Cup of Nations.
Regarded as one of the greatest players in South African football history, Khumalo was distinguished by great speed and agility, excellent ball distribution and outstanding technical qualities. He created magic with his dribbling, fantastic ball control, accurate first time touches. His short passes were particularly accurate while his long passes sometimes lacked accuracy despite being faster. He was often in charge of corner kicks and his fast balls to the box were a threat for the opposing defense. He supported the forwards extremely well, although he didn't forget about supporting the back-line when necessary. His shots were powerful but not always accurate despite scoring over 80 goals in his career. He was considered a penalty specialist and some say he never missed a shot from the spot, but in reality he did miss a few, for example one against Algeria at the 1996 African Cup. Khumalo's physique looked solid but as he was often targeted by opposing defenders due to his technical abilities, the tackles highlighted an average physical strength. Even though he was best players in the South African team, it wasn't uncommon for him to disappear in the second half of the game like it often happened during the 1996 AFCON.

Are you sure about such high value for AGI? Even I in the past I always wondered why Naka rated him with 91 for AGI and from the videos I don't see anything that is good enough for 86 there, especially considering his height. For me he looks like DA > AGI type of player, maybe Tactical Dribble could also suit him.

I wasn't sure when I put that 86. He did move between opponents quite smoothly considering his height but you're right.
I went a bit overboard his AGI. The old 92 was definitely too high. 86 still looks high. I don't mind making those changes.
