The defender could well be the piece of the puzzle that has been missing in Chiefs.
Njabulo Ngcobo could well be the piece of the puzzle that has been missing in Kaizer Chiefs’ defence department.Since Tefu Mashamaite left Amakhosi in 2015, the team has not had a central defender providing stability in the heart of defence as their former captain did.
It is not surprising that this was the last time Chiefs won silverware, thanks largely to a defensive unit that gave very little away.When Amakhosi clinched the 2014/15 league title, they did so having conceded only 14 goals in 30 matches, their second-best defensive record in the 16-team PSL.

This was the first time the team recorded a negative goal difference in the PSL era. headtopics.com
This unwanted record left the club’s fans rallying on social media for Chiefs to lure the likes of Ngcobo, who uses both his right and left foot equally.The Chiefs fans have always stopped me in the streets, pleading with me to consider joining the club. Some even went as far as calling me on my phone. Njabulo Ngcobo
Ngcobo has acknowledged that Chiefs fans played a role in convincing him to join the Naturena-based club.“At first I was a bit nervous that I am really here, but it is slowly dawning on me that I am Chiefs player now.“And with time, I’ll settle in because already I feel almost at home,” the 27-year-old told City Press this week on the sidelines of a photoshoot of Chiefs’ new kit.
“The Chiefs fans have always stopped me in the streets, pleading with me to consider joining the club. Some even went as far as calling me on my phone.READ:“But Chiefs handled the whole transfer in such a professional manner, which was something that really convinced me that this is the right club to join.”
Growing up, Ngcobo claims he “never followed any team”, despite his family being Amakhosi supporters.“Even now, my father is still a big Chiefs fan. He is also overly excited that I have joined his beloved club,” he chuckled.Although Ngcobo only debuted in the premier division last season, the AmaZulu development graduate has drawn comparisons to former Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates captain Mbulelo “OJ” Mabizela, who is ranked as one of the most intelligent defenders in the PSL. headtopics.com
Ngcobo is expected to bring a calmer influence in a Chiefs rearguard the same way he helped Swallows to end their return season to the elite league with a joint third-best defensive record having conceded 23 goals last campaign.It is important that fans continue to have faith in the team and give us all the support to do well this season. Personally, I’ll be happy to win a trophy with the club in my first season. Njabulo Ngcobo
At Chiefs, the lanky defender will compete for the centre-back slots with Daniel Cardoso, Mulomowandau Mathoho, Siyabonga Ngezana and fellow newcomer Austin Dube from Richards Bay.Ngcobo maintains that Chiefs were “going through a phase” last season and predicted that the upcoming campaign will be different.
“You can see the intention from training now that everyone is focused to do well this coming season,” he said.“The team is full of experienced players and they have welcomed us new players with open arms,” explained Ngcobo, who not so long ago also turned out for Richards Bay and Uthongathi in the NFD.

The starting line-ups of the two Soweto giants were voted for by the fans.Ngcobo and Chiefs’ other new signings arrived when the voting process had already started and they can therefore only be introduced later in the game as substitutes.“It is important that fans continue to have faith in the team and give us all the support to do well this season. Personally, I’ll be happy to win a trophy with the club in my first season,” he said.

“I just won the Cosafa Cup with the national team and it is my wish for Chiefs to lift a trophy this season,” said Ngcobo, who signed a three-year contract with Amakhosi.However, it remains to be seen if coach Stuart Baxter can replicate the success of his previous stint at Chiefs six years ago.
Back then, the team’s foundation was built on a solid defensive structure comprising of Mashamaite, Morgan Gould, Siboniso Gaxa and Tsepo Masilela.Perfect fit: Ngcobo unveils Chiefs’ new jersey ahead of Soweto derby todayNjabulo Ngcobo could well be the piece of the puzzle that has been missing in Kaizer Chiefs’ defence department.
As he embraced the new Chiefs jersey as a perfect fit, the 27-year-old defender told City Press that Amakhosi fans played a role in convincing him to join the Soweto giants.Ngcobo was nominated alongside other new signings to model Chiefs’ new kit that the team will wear in the off-season Soweto derby against Orlando Pirates in the Carling Black Label Cup at Orlando Stadium on Sunday.
