"Dube And Ngcobo Will Make A Great Partnership." Dladla

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

"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.

"Dube has a significant edge because we don't have enough left-back central defenders." 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 be for them, so we need to be very clear about that."

"I believe they must be able to deal with pressure from fans and the media if they are to flourish at Kaizer Chiefs. When you're a member of a huge club, that's crucial."

After helping Richards Bay finish second in the NFD and qualify for the PSL promotion/relegation playoffs, Dube was named to the Bafana Bafana squad.

Ngcobo was also called up to the Bafana Bafana squad after a great season with Swallows FC, when he was crowned PSL Defender of the Season.

Under the guidance of the club's renowned coach Stuart Baxter, there has been discussion of Dube and Ngcobo becoming the Chiefs' new central defensive partnership.

When Chiefs face Mamelodi Sundowns in the MTN8 quarter-final encounter on August 15, Dube and Ngcobo will be looking to make their formal Chiefs debuts.
