Tinashe trumpets "raw talent" Ntshangase


Ntshangase made his debut for Amakhosi in the 2-1 victory over Polokwane City at FNB Stadium on Saturday, following his move from Limpopo outfit Baroka FC. The 24-year-old was part of the build-up for the winning goal which was scored by Dumisani Zuma.

Nengomasha is excited to see Ntshangase in the Chiefs midfield and has described him as a “raw talent”.

“I think Ntshangase is a brilliant player and there are many fans who have been asking [for Chiefs to sign him]. He is a good number 10 and he brings something they don’t have in the game. He’s got the vision for a pass, which is something that was missing in the team, that link between the strikers and a good number 10,” he says.

“I played with quite a few number 10s in my time. Sometimes there was Stanton Fredericks, there was Jabu Pule [now Mahlangu] and Shoes Moshoeu. With him I see a different talent because he is raw. When I got to Chiefs 'Stiga' [Fredericks] had been in the national team and he knew when to do things, but with Ntshangase he is raw and exciting. I hope his talent will come full circle at Chiefs and that he will win things because he deserves it.“

Nengomasha feels Chiefs have been let down by their signings in the last few seasons, but is impressed with the business they have done now after also recruiting Leonardo Castro and Kabelo Mahlasela from Mamelodi Sundowns and Bloemfontein Celtic respectively.

“I think the major issue has been signings, because if you look at past three signings how many contracts have been terminated? It’s so sad. So probably it was wrong signings,” the former Zimbabwean international says.

“I don’t think they would want to sign a player for R10 million and then after six months they terminate his contract, saying he is not the right player. For it has been wrong signing of players.”
