Naicker prepared to wait his turn at Arrows

The former Jomo Cosmos and Milano United shot-stopper believes he will get a chance to prove himself. Nkosingiphile Gumede has been coach Steve Komphela’s preferred one number goalkeeper, while second choice Maximilian Mbaeva is pushing for a spot in the team.

“Unfortunately it’s hard for us keepers to get game time because only one can play in a game, unlike in-field guys," he said during an interview with Durban Youth Radio.  

“We have good supporting structures and a good relationship as goalkeepers. We understand the importance of putting the team first, Nkosingiphile Gumede is doing well so far and when time is right I will get an opportunity.”

Naicker’s not interested in leaving Arrows to seek game time elsewhere. He feels like he is settled at the club.

“I've been moving from Gauteng to Cape Town. Every player needs to have a club where he [can] call it home and Arrows is my home, I'm very happy," he said.  

"With Arrows I've managed to be in Spain after winning the MultiChoice Diski Challenge last season.”
