Chiefs' five most valuable U23s revealed


With all eyes on Kaizer Chiefs' development ranks following Mfundo Vilakazi's DStv Diski Challenge debut, here is a look at the five most valuable U23 players on the club's books.

Highly-rated youngster Mfundo Vilakazi made headlines on Sunday when he marked his debut for Kaizer Chiefs' reserve side with a goal in a 4-1 DStv Diski Challenge win over Chippa United.

Despite only officially joining the club from Doornkop Students earlier this month, he is already regarded as one of Chiefs' most promising players and a potential star for the future.

The club will, however, not be rushing his development and can instead focus their immediate on a number of other talented youngsters who have already broken into the first-team squad.

That number includes 19-year-old goalkeeper Karabo Molefe and 21-year-old DDC graduate, Sabeleo Radebe, who are both valued at around R430 000 by Transfermarkt.

Chiefs have also produced the prodigious duo of Njabulo Blom and Nkosingiphile Ngcobo in recent years, with the duo having since become regulars within the starting XI for the Amakhosi.

Born just over a month apart, the set of talented 22-year-olds are both valued at an impressive R8.6 million and that figure is expected to rise rapidly in the coming seasons.

While Blom and Ngcobo are the pride of Naturena, the club's most valuable U23 player is Sibusiso Mabiliso, who joined Chiefs from domestic competitors AmaZulu at the start of the campaign. 

The 22-year-old Bafana Bafana international boasts an incredible valuation of R14.1 million, which sees him rank not only as Chiefs' most prized youngster but as the most valuable U23 player in the entire league.
