Dube, Ngcobo Tipped For Greatness At Chiefs

Richards Bay FC assistant coach Pitso Dladla believes Austin Dube and Njabulo Ngcobo will make a top defending duo at Kaizer Chiefs.

Dladla has worked with both defenders at Uthongathi and Richards Bay FC.

With talks of the youngsters becoming the new central defensive duo at Naturena, the coach believes they have what it takes to deliver, but that will depend on coach Stuart Baxter and his approach. 

"Playing for Kaizer Chiefs is a good opportunity for them, a growth we want to see as coaches. I think playing in the COSAFA Cup and winning it really helped them to get used to pressure ahead of their move to a big club like Chiefs. It won't be easy but I trust they will succeed," Dladla said, addressing media in Durban. 

"Dube has a huge advantage as we don't have enough central defenders that are left backs. A partnership with Njabulo Ngcobo would be a very good one for Chiefs but at the end of the day coach Stuart Baxter and his team will decide. 

"The reality is that we can love them but competion and a club's approach may not suit them, so we need to be very clear on that."

Playing for Kaizer Chiefs comes with different challenges and Dladla believes if they can manage the media and supporters, they will succeed.

"I think if they need to succeed at Kaizer Chiefs, they must be able to deal with pressure from supporters and media. That's critical when you play for a big club."
