How Kambole will get 'power to excel'


Former Kaizer Chiefs striker Sthembiso Ngcobo has given his support to the struggling Lazarus Kambole. 

Kambole came to the Absa Premiership with lots of expectations after his performances in the Zambian league last season and in the COSAFA Cup in July.

But since joining Chiefs the 25-year-old is still struggling to get goals and somebody who can relate to him because of his previous experience with Amakhosi is Sthembiso Ngcobo.

Ngcobo shared some words of advice for Kambole.

"I've seen him playing, I think he only needs that one goal that can boost his confidence. He must be patient and the good thing is he plays for a big club like Kaizer Chiefs where players treat each other as family," Ngcobo said.

"I'm sure he's getting support from the likes of Bernard Parker, those are the senior players in the team. Also Bobby Motaung's got that thing of creating that good environment between players and management for support.

"It's still early for him, he's still adjusting to the country and system. As I said, I think one goal will give him that power to excel, he's a complete striker."

Ngcobo also believes with Chiefs doing well so far, it should help Kambole to ease the pressure on himself, and he urges the supporters to be patient.

"For Chiefs to be on good form, it will help Kampole. People must also understand that Chiefs are like other teams. As much as it's a huge team, they can't always win, you have to lose some.

"It's a very good start for them but I can't tell who is going to win the league, it's too early. Everybody who plays for Chiefs deserves to be there and they will compete."
