During the Kaizer Chiefs CAF Champions League fixture against Horoya Athletic Club, some Kaizer Chiefs players were seen wearing jersey numbers that they usually do not wear, maybe due to some reasons, but the jersey number of the renowned Kaizer Chiefs legend was also spotted.

The Kaizer Chiefs young midfielder, Nkosingiphile Ngcobo was seen wearing the number 15 jersey that was worn by the great legend of Amakhosi, Doctor Khumalo, during The Phefeni Glamour Boys days of glory.

Ngcobo is arguably one of the best and most dedicated players in the Amakhosi camp at the moment, but the jersey that he was wearing comes with incredible expectations from the fans.

There is no doubt that the Kaizer Chiefs legend, Doctor Khumalo, remains one of the best players to ever play for Kaizer Chiefs and the South African national team, Bafana Bafana.

He was also part of the creme deʼla creme that won the Afcon for the first time in the history of South Africa in 1996.

The Kaizer Chiefs fans expect the person who takes over the jersey to deliver like Khumalo did, and maybe do more than he did for the team.

Is Ngcobo the right man to inherit the jersey?

Well, Nkosingiphile Ngcobo is still young, and he could grow with Amakhosi and become a legend if he puts in more work and remains disciplined like many other legends.

The 21 year-old youngster is undoubtedly talented and has the ability to deliver when paired with players who understand the type of football that he plays.

Given an opportunity and a few more ball players that could pass the ball better than the current crop he plays with, he will surely enjoy playing more and his efforts will not go to waste.

The jersey needs someone who knows how to absorb the pressure and if the player is ready and displays lethal performances going forward, then giving him the jersey will surely be a morale booster.
