Kaizer Chiefs’ Siyabonga Ngezana is not only an inspiration to many aspiring footballers in South Africa but also to his brother Mzokhona who is plying his trade abroad.
Though he is an older brother, and with his professional career having started only this year at age 27, the Abidjan-based defender says his Chiefs and SA U23 star brother is pushing him to reach his goals.
“Siya is my inspiration and he has achieved a lot, which gives me a challenge as his brother to do more than him. That’s why I am always pushing myself to try and do more than him. I am a centre-back but with my speed you wouldn’t think I play in that position. I am very quick. I am trying to bring different things in my game as a centre-back,” Ngezana told the Siya crew.
Meanwhile, the younger brother said he was hoping to make history for Amakhosi, having been at the club for the eight years, since coming through the youth development and all the way to the first team.
