Chiefs state that they have the best player in South Africa


Kaizer Chiefs head coach Stuart Baxter has been busy with his squad as they trying to get back to winning ways. Baxter feels that there’s a lot of progress at Naturena, which is something that puts a smile on his face. He’s well aware that things will not be easy within the DStv Premiership but he’s using the FIFA break to fix certain challenges within the team. Surely, when Chiefs returns to the field, there will be a glimpse of hunger for winning in players' faces. On the 16th of October Amakhosi will welcome Chippa United in their backyard. What will make this match special is that Chippa is now coached by Chiefs ex-coach Gavin Hunt, who was sacked in May this year.

Nevertheless, Baxter has started an interesting conversation, as he feels that he has the best right-back in South Africa within his squad. As he singled out the talented Njabulo Blom who has been part of the starting eleven at Chiefs for some time now. What’s impressive is that Blom has made seven appearances across all competitions thus far in the 2021/22 campaign. With Baxter’s vote of confidence, it’s clear that Blom will be seen regularly on the matchday squad. As he has work to back it up, the 21-year-old keeps rising to the occasion every time he’s needed. “I think Njabulo Blom is really playing well at the moment, I think he is, in my opinion, the best full-back in the country at the moment,” said Baxter talking to Chiefs media department. As he was proud of Blom and what he has done under him thus far at Naturena.

What’s impressive is that Blom has been recognized even at the national level, which is what good players deserve. As he’s part of Bafana Bafana's 23-man squad that will battle it out with Ethiopia in the back-to-back World Cup qualifiers this month, which should be difficult games. However, the Bafana head coach Hugo Broos has shown a lot of beliefs in younger talent and Blom fits the description too.
