Nkosingiphile Ngcobo has been questioned about his efforts to sneak into Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter's starting lineup.
The 21-year-old, who was a member of the Olympic team in Japan two months ago, was a key member of the Glamour Boys last season, but with a new coach taking over for Gavin Hunt, he has been relegated to the bench.
“In training, I'm pushing myself to comprehend the coach, get information, and make sure I exhibit it on the field. Although we have suffered a few losses, I believe we are doing well as a team. But we're making progress. Coming in as a sub puts a lot of pressure on you because you have to alter and change the game,” Ngcobo told the media.
When the Chiefs were thrashed 4-1 by Royal AM at FNB Stadium last Saturday, the midfielder was given the opportunity to play.
“I think I didn't perform badly in the limited minutes I had, but I can improve if I get 15 minutes or more to help the team score a goal,” he stated. You will lose in football at times, but as Kaizer Chiefs, we do not want to lose in this manner. As a result, we are motivating and encouraging one another. In the following match, we need to get a (good) outcome. People I encounter are upbeat and confident that we will succeed. We're on our toes after that recent loss. With the upcoming game, we need to convey a message.”
Chiefs will play Marumo Gallants in the DStv Premiership on Sunday in Limpopo.
