The Chiefs' top five most valuable under-23 players have been revealed.
The Kaizer Chiefs development levels have been the focus of attention since Mfundo Vilakazi made his debut in the DStv Diski Challenge. Here is a look at the five most valued U23 players currently on the club's books.
Highly-rated teenager Mfundo Vilakazi made headlines on Sunday when he scored his first goal for Kaizer Chiefs' reserve team in a 4-1 win over Chippa United in the DStv Diski Challenge. Vilakazi is one of the most highly-rated players in the country.
In spite of the fact that he only formally joined the club from Doornkop Students earlier this month, he is already considered one of Chiefs' most promising players and a future star.
The club, on the other hand, will not accelerate his development and will instead concentrate their efforts in the short term on a number of other outstanding kids who have already broken into the first-team.
Karabo Molefe, a 19-year-old goalkeeper, and Sabeleo Radebe, a 21-year-old DDC graduate, both of whom are rated at approximately R430 000 by Transfermarkt, are among the players in this group.
Over the course of the last few years, Chiefs have also produced the illustrious tandem of Njabulo Blom and Nkosingiphile Ngcobo, who have gone on to establish themselves as regular members of the Amakhosi's starting XI.
With their births occurring just a little more than a month apart, the pair of outstanding 22-year-olds are each valued at an amazing R8.6 million, with the value projected to climb further in the following seasons.
While Blom and Ngcobo are the pride of Naturena, Sibusiso Mabiliso is the club's most valued under-23 player. Mabiliso joined Chiefs from domestic rivals AmaZulu at the start of the season.
The 22-year-old Bafana Bafana international is valued at an unbelievable R14.1 million, making him not only the Chiefs' most prized teenager, but also the most valuable U23 player in the entire league, according to the club.
