Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya has been promoted to the first team and will be travelling with the team to Nelspruit for their first league outing of 2018 against SuperSport United. 


Chiefs football manager, Bobby Motaung, told the club’s official website that it’s important to promote young talent. He said, “We have been looking at his progress and we are satisfied with what we’ve seen. He trained with the senior team a few times in 2017 and we believe a player of his quality is ready for the big stage.


“While it’s important to reinforce the team with players from other teams, it’s important to recognise the wealth of young talent we have in our development structure.”

@dellah can i trust a coach who has never won official cup in his 17 years as a coach? We really need a coach Khosi.

Kaizer Chiefs have got talented youngsters, welcome to the first team Ntiya-Ntiya. I guess Given Thibedi would be the next to promote, what a player in him.

Promoting is better than signing all those free agents who add no value to the team. Should have done this long time ago, when the likes of Masilela, Tefu,Katsande were at their best we should have promoted players from the development as their backup. We saw it worked with Gordinho, as he was a backup player to the likes of Tefu, Gould and Tower. Introducing them now when the team is under pressure to deliver is just putting too much pressure on them.
