Dube, Ngcobo Tipped For Greatness At Chiefs

Pitso Dladla, an assistant coach at Richards Bay FC, feels Austin Dube and Njabulo Ngcobo would form a formidable defensive pairing for Kaizer Chiefs.

At Uthongathi and Richards Bay FC, Dladla has worked with both defenders.

With speculation of the teenagers becoming Naturena's new central defense partnership, the coach feels they have what it takes to succeed, but it will be up to Stuart Baxter and his method to deliver.Playing for the Kaizer Chiefs is a terrific opportunity for them to progress, which is something we as coaches want to see. I believe that competing in the COSAFA Cup and winning it prepared them for their move to a large club like Chiefs by exposing them to pressure. It will not be easy, but I am confident that they will succeed "Dladla remarked this when speaking to the media in Durban.

"We don't have enough left-back central defenders, so Dube has a major advantage. A relationship with Njabulo Ngcobo would be beneficial to Chiefs, but coach Stuart Baxter and his team will make the final decision.

"We can adore them, but competition and a club's approach may not suit them, so we need to be upfront about that."

Playing for Kaizer Chiefs presents a variety of problems, but Dladla believes that if they can control the media and supporters, they will be successful.

"I believe that if they are to flourish at Kaizer Chiefs, they must be able to deal with fan and media pressure. When you play for a large club, this is crucial."
