Mtsweni grateful for Kaizer Chiefs debut against Black Africa in CAF Champions League

Posted: 17 February 2014 Time: 10:41

Kaizer Chiefs teenager Simphiwe Mtsweni expressed gratitude after making his debut in the 1-1 draw with Black Africa in the CAF Champions League on Saturday night.

The 19-year-old left-back, who arrived at Naturena in the off-season, played the full 90 minutes in Windhoek, as Kingston Nkhatha's first-half goal was cancelled out by Willy Stephanus's low strike on the hour.

The Glamour Boys advanced 4-1 on aggregate to the next stage of the competition.

"To be honest with you I am grateful for the opportunity that the coach (Stuart Baxter) has given me," Mtsweni told Chiefs' official website.

"It shows he believes in the youngsters. To include a youngster in the starting line up on an away game, cup game and more especially in a game of a magnitude of CAF Champions League, shows the coach 's confidence in us. I just hope I did not disappoint.

"The game was not an easy. It was away game even though for us it was another home away from home in terms of the support. It was ok considering that we came here leading by 3-0. I am just happy that we progressed to the next round.

"It all boils down to hard work. I will keep my focus and make sure I grab every opportunity that comes my way. We have a good company of experience. The senior players help us a lot. We rely on the senior players to grow."

You can only get better poi! If you knuckle down and work hard then only you can fail yourself. Go out there and represent that badge with dignity and honour, make the Khosi Nation proud.

the truth is, KC were second best for most of the second leg and were lucky to escape with a draw. they really are not that good. SA and the English have plenty of resources but mediocre footballers. it's a fact. deal with it. given half the resources SA football has, most other Cosafa countries' amateurs will achieve more.
