Ntshangase troubles continue

Premiership

The fortunes of former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Siphelele Ntshangase are frustratingly still not improving despite playing under a third coach during the start of the season.

This is what Siphelele Ntshangase is faced with at Marumo Gallants.

From having failed to play under Sebastien Migne – who had made it known that the player was signed without either his input or consultation – Ntshangase is yet to play or even sit on the bench in the games that Dan Malesela has overseen since taking over last month.

Ntshangase's time at Gallants has so far brought an output of just 76 minutes spread over two substitute appearances when Raymond Mdaka was in charge in between Migne’s sacking and Malesela’s appointment.

Both his appearances ended in defeats against Stellenbosch and then Mamelodi Sundowns.

He was an unused substitute in the 3-1 win over TS Galaxy overseen by Mdaka while Malesela was in self-isolation after testing positive for covid.

The 28-year-old has been expected to receive his career at Gallants following his troubles at Chiefs but appears to be still stuck in the mud despite all the talent he is known to have.

Ntshangase had last played a competitive match in February when Chiefs were bundled out of the Nedbank Cup by Richards Bay getting a 45-minute run before being pulled out at the break.

In his last two years at Chiefs, he only managed seven appearances.

With Gallants picked up form under Malesela, it remains to be seen just how and when Ntshangase will eventually be able to get a regular run in the team.
