Chiefs' young stars handed R450k whips


Kaizer Chiefs' young stars Nkosingiphile Ngcobo and Njabulo Blom received matching new rides worth around R450 000 for their impressive displays.

The duo have quickly won over the hearts of the Amakhosi faithful since their promotion from the club's reserve team, thanks to their admirable contributions on the pitch.

Ngcobo and Blom were as such voted for by fans as Chiefs' "Players that have it all" for December/January and February/March respectively.

The two reserve team graduates have made major strides in their development and established themselves as first team regulars, with Ngcobo having managed 35 and Blom 40 appearances under coach Gavin Hunt this season.

As part of their player of the month prizes, they were handed some funky new gadgets, a trophy and a brand spanking new, recently-launched Toyota Corolla 2.0 XR CVT.

Ngcobo and Blom will be allowed to drive the cars for a limited period before having to return it to Toyota.

Did you know?

The new Corolla has up to 125kW of power and 200Nm of torque, with options of either a manual or a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT, otherwise simply known as automatic) for a more dynamic driving experience.
