Premier League

Ngcobo is itching for Chiefs action, according to his agent.

Njabulo Ngcobo's agent King Ngubane admitted that the defender was not satisfied with Kaizer Chiefs because he feared that he would lose his Bafana Bafana position. 

 When DStv, the defending champion of the Premier League this season, Nkobo joined the Swallows before the start of the season, he was expected to have just started. 

 However, the 27-year-old central defender has not played a game with Eric Matojo and Daniel Cardoso before. Ngubane is the agent of Ngcobo's transfer from the Bird's Nest to Naturena. He announced that his clients are worried about not getting a chance from coach Stuart Baxter. 

 "Every player wants to play, so if they don't play, they will naturally not be happy. He is a defender this season... he wants to play for Bafana. Therefore, if he does not have the opportunity to play for the Chiefs, it will be difficult to get Bafana's pick," Ngubane told Sowetan yesterday. 

 "If you understand football, you will understand why Njabulo can't be happy. Even I am not happy because coach Bafana [Hugo Broos] trusted him in the game against Ghana [he was in 77th place. '

 Ngubane nevertheless is optimistic that Ngcobo will soon get a chance in the Chiefs, especially because Amakhosi has already conceded a goal. So far, the Chiefs have leaked five goals in all MTN8 and four league games. 

 "You can't change the way the coach does things, but we hope this boy can crack it as soon as possible, especially if the team has already conceded. The coach is already under pressure and people are asking how to make money on the bench of the best guard of the season. Hope Njabulo can play as soon as possible. 

The Chiefs accepted the Royal Morning at the FNB Stadium on Saturday (5pm). It remains to be seen whether Baxter will eventually fall and place the boy from Fulveni in KwaZulu Natal.
