Chiefs Given Advice On What To Do With Stash's No.10 Jersey

Following the departure of Siphelele Ntshangase, a former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder has given the club on what to do with the now-vacant jersey number 10.

Ntshangase's exit was confirmed by Amakhosi exactly a week ago, bringing an end to a frustrating spell with the Soweto giants, in which he struggled to break into the starting line-up. His departure means the jersey number 10, which has also been worn by the likes of Isaac 'Shakes' Khungwane, Absalom 'Scara' Thindwa, Stanton 'Stiga' Fredericks, Siyabonga Nkosi and Mthokozisi Yende, is available for next season.

Chiefs are free to sign new players now that their transfer ban is over and the jersey is open for any of their new signings to take it. There are players who are still with the club who are capable of wearing the jersey and many Amakhosi supporters would probably not mind if promising midfielder Nkosingiphile Ngcobo was to be given the jersey. 

But former Amakhosi midfielder Nthokozo Sikhakhane feels they should wait a bit before giving the jersey to anyone. 

"I think they must just put the number 10 aside for now. I don't see a player wearing that jersey now. Even if they sign a new player, we don't know if he will fit or should I say he will adapt quickly to the team and perform," Sikhakhane tells the Siya crew.

"It (the jersey number 10) is like number 15 or 12. Those numbers used to be worn by quality players, and also number 11."
Sikhakhane, who came through the Amakhosi development, feels the club needs to make signings in all but one department. 

"I think they do have players, but they lack confidence at the moment. Maybe two defenders who will add value, three midfielders and probably one or two strikers."

Chiefs have had some iconic captains over the years, here are 12 of them...
