Kaizer Chiefs head coach, Arthur Zwane has openly praised Nkosingiphile Ngcobo, claiming the young star is a “specially talented player” for the future.
It is a well-known fact amongst Amakhosi fans, that Zwane is a giant fan of the Chiefs’ development graduate, making his feelings clear on Ngcobo’s career.
Ngcobo, who was one of the outstanding performers in the recent Soweto Derby, has been voted to be in the starting lineup for the Carling Black Label Cup encounter between the two Soweto giants.
Speaking ahead of the Carling Black Label tournament with media on a multitude of topics, “10 111” was quizzed on his feelings on the talent of the 22-year-old midfielder going forward.
“I think people haven’t seen the best of him yet, especially in the first team, because he is a special talent, and once he gets to the level that we expect him to be, you will see that he’s a special player,” Zwane told the media.
“We know that Mshini (Ngcobo) is a special talent, there is no doubt about it, and a fully fit Mshini without any off the field challenges will always give you something special.
“You would have noticed how we use Mshini, if you have been following us from the development, he had challenges where he lost his father, and at some point lost confidence with injuries here and there.
“But there’s no doubt that we will always try to help him to reach his full potential as an individual.”
The two teams meet at 12h00 at the FNB Stadium in the 2nd semifinal of the competition on Saturday.
