Matured Amakhosi Signing No Longer Scared By Soweto Derby

As a teenager, Kaizer Chiefs’ Reeve Frosler was a little bit intimidated by the idea of playing in a Soweto Derby, but now – as a matured 21-year-old old – he’s relishing the opportunity.
 
 
Frosler was confirmed by the Glamour Boys on transfer deadline day after they agreed on terms with Bidvest Wits over an immediate move to Naturena, with the club eager to get him on board now rather than wait for his pre-contract to kick in on July 1.
 
The young Bafana Bafana international has been sidelined for quite some time in Braamfontein after a dispute regarding his contract with Wits, but now he has his focus turned to try to break into Ernst Middendorp’s side in Soweto.
 
This weekend, the youngster will be present at FNB Stadium as Chiefs lock horns with their bitter rivals, Orlando Pirates, however, whether he will be in the matchday squad remains to be seen. 
 
While in camp with the national Under-20s squad a few years ago, Frosler attended a Soweto Derby from the stands during a South African U20 camp a few years ago, the defender is now itching to get out on the field and play in one – though this weekend could be too soon for him. 
 
He told the club’s official website, “The atmosphere was electrifying, the crowd really gets the players going. It was something magnificent to see. When I saw the game then I was a bit scared about the thought of playing in a Soweto Derby... I was, however, still very young at the time. I have matured a lot since, and I would like to know now how it feels to play in a game of that magnitude.”
 
Frosler signed a three-and-a-half-year deal at Naturena.
