‘There’s a big challenge ahead’

Kaizer Chiefs have plenty to prove in the new season following their calamitous 2018/19 campaign, but one of their recent signings is relishing the challenge.

Turning out for one of South Africa’s most popular clubs is no easy feat, and many have come and failed, and left having made little to no impact at all in recent years.

The challenge on Reeve Frosler’s hands is not only to try and bounce back after a difficult period at Bidvest Wits, but also to capture the imagination of the Amakhosi faithful.

The 21-year-old, who arrived in January, comes in when the supporters are already sceptical of the current players and their worthiness of donning the club’s colours, but he remains excited to show his value.

“Being at Kaizer Chiefs is a big adjustment, but over time I have settled well and getting to adapt in the setup,” Frosler told his club website.

“I look forward to spending some time resting back home in Port Elizabeth. But, mostly, I can’t wait to return to action.

“There’s a big challenge ahead of us in the new season. We have to make amends, do better and make our supporters happy.”

The former Amajita star was also part of the Bafana Bafana side made up of under-23 players that went on to win the COSAFA Plate final over the weekend and is hoping to re-establish himself on the international stage.

“It’s always a great honour to be selected to represent my country. It’s also an opportunity for me to showcase my talent as a player at an international level,” he said.

“We played according to plan but did not convert our chances. I’m happy with the experience gained in the tournament.”
