Siphelele Ntshangase says he will bring killer passes to Kaizer Chiefs

New Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Siphelele Ntshangase says all Amakhosi have been missing is the “killer pass” which he will most definitely provide.
The former Black Leopards and Baroka FC midfielder has set himself a target of 10 assists before the season closes, which means he’ll have to get cracking to make sure he achieves his goal.
The 24-year-old midfielder could make his debut for the Soweto giants when they take on Polokwane City at FNB Stadium tomorrow night (20h15).
“There’s something that has been missing here for the past two seasons, the killer pass. They [Kaizer Chiefs supporters] will see them, the champagne pass. They play well, but they don’t have that thing.
“Actually I spoke to Shabba [Siphiwe Tshabalala]. He guided me and he said I should not complicate things and that I must play my game. I am that type of player that you don’t know what I will do with the ball when I have it. Unpredictable.”
Linked with a move to Amakhosi in the last transfer window, Ntshangase ended up being sold to Baroka.
Chiefs manager Bobby Motaung said Leopards raised their transfer fee when they heard that Chiefs were interested in Ntshangase and they backed off. The midfielder admits he was disappointed not to make a move to Naturena at the time.
“A little bit disappointed, but I knew that God one day will do things his way. I am happy because I have been dying to be here. I am here to work.”
Asked if he is ready to play this weekend, Ntshangase said: “80-20.”
The KZN born player will no doubt bring the type of creativity Amakhosi need in midfield to break down the opposition. He’s confident on the ball and has vision to spot the runs that are usually made by strikers.
With just a few months left in the season, Amakhosi coach Steve Komphela will be hoping that his new man will hit the ground running.
