Having earlier signed a pre-contract, Amakhosi tendered to have Frosler released early from his contract at The Clever Boys, as they look to have a right go at ending their trophy drought.

Coach Ernst Middendorp has trumpeted the signature of the former Amajita full-back and has hinted that he could well feature alongside the likes of Ramahlwe Mphahlele or Kgotso Moleko.

“Reeve is a wing-back who can play on either the right or the left. He is one for the future and an investment for the club,” said Middendorp on his club’s website.

“Ramahlwe Mphahlele and Kgotso Moleko have done well at right-back and can also give us flexibility at the center-back position.”

Frosler, meanwhile, has welcomed the opportunity to get his career back on track with the Soweto giants, and vows to give his utmost for the badge and the supporters.

“This is a big opportunity and I am ready to give it my all. It’s my ambition to win trophies with Kaizer Chiefs. I will do my best in every game selected for and I never want to let them [the supporters] down,” he commented on Chiefs’ website.

With The Glamour Boys’ next assignment being the second-round Absa Premiership meeting with arch rivals Orlando Pirates next weekend, the Port Elizabeth-born defender has pondered what it would be like to make his debut in front of a packed FNB Stadium.

“The atmosphere was electrifying; the crowd really gets the players going. It was something magnificent to see,” he added.

“When I saw the game then I was a bit scared about the thought of playing in a Soweto Derby. I was, however, still very young at the time.

“I have matured a lot since, and I would like to know now how it feels to play in a game of that magnitude.”
