"Ngcobo Is Not Better Than Cardoso Or Mathoho." Stuart Baxter

Njabulo Ngcobo's agent, King Ngubane, has expressed concern that the defender's lack of playing time at Premier Soccer League side Kaizer Chiefs could lose him a spot in the Bafana Bafana team. 

He's also talked about how Amakhosi's unwillingness to use his player is causing them to concede goals. 

The star was called up for South Africa's World Cup qualifiers against Zimbabwe and Ghana before being cut from the squad when it was reduced to 23 players. However, due to injuries to Mosa Lebusa, Sphephelo Sithole, and Mothobi Mvala, Ngcobo was called up to the national team.

Stuart Baxter: "When he's chosen for the national team, he's chosen for the national squad." I can't be put in the national team because some of the coaches think he's performing well, so he'll have to learn from Mathoho and Cardsos if he wants to start.” 

“Whether or whether the national coach picks him is excellent for Njabulo and us, but it doesn't guarantee him a spot in the team here.”

The South African Premier Soccer League returns this weekend with a new batch of matches, beginning with Kaizer Chiefs' meeting against Royal AM on Saturday. Both teams have struggled this season and will have to improve this weekend. 

Kaizer Chiefs are currently in 10th place in the South African Premier League, having just won one game so far this season. The Chiefs are coming off a 2-0 loss to Mamelodi Sundowns, the reigning champions, and will need to bounce back in this encounter.

Royal AM, on the other hand, is now in 12th place in the league rankings and has not performed well this season. Last week, the away side beat Chippa United 1-0, and they will need a similar result this time. 

Royal AM have an enviable record against Kaizer Chiefs, having won two of the six meetings between the two sides. Only one victory against Royal AM has been achieved by Kaizer Chiefs, and they will need to even the score on Saturday.

The two sides' most recent meeting was in May of this year, and it finished in a 2-2 draw. On the day, both teams were not at their best, and they will need to improve this weekend.
