The New Face In Chiefs’ Squad – Debut On The Cards
Kaizer Chiefs fans could see yet another Amakhosi debut this weekend after Ernst Middendorp brought in a new face into their squad to face SuperSport United.
It was confirmed recently that young Njabulo Blom had been promoted into the Glamour Boys’ first team after showing promise in their development ranks and for the South African U20s, joining the likes of Happy Mashiane and Nkosingiphile Ngcobo on the list of players who have stepped up this season.
Now it has been revealed that Middendorp hasn’t wasted any time in bringing the 19-year-old into a game day situation, with the centre back making the squad that travelled to Mbombela Stadium for tonight’s big game with Matsatsantsa.
The German gave the reasons for Blom’s presence, telling the club’s official website, “Njabulo Blom has been included in the travelling squad… I’ve noticed a positive change in his game and persona, which is good. He’s showing signs of being ready to make his first team debut.”
SuperSport host Chiefs in a clash between fifth and seventh place in the Absa Premiership, with a defeat for either side set to put a big dent in any title ambitions that they might have.
