The young striker shot to prominence when he shone brightly for the Amakhosi MDC and Multichoice Diski Shield side back in 2018.

The former University of Johannesburg student’s bright performances managed to earn him a move to the USA after he bagged a scholarship with Coastal Carolina University, after being spotted by south African-born coach Kyle Timm.

According to the player’s representative Gerald Baloyi of Vodia Sports Management, the 23-year-old hails from Daveyton, which has earthed multitudes of footballing talent through the years like Jabu Mahlangu, Junior Khanye and Thabiso ‘Skapie’ Malatsi, has impressed Bradley Carnell at the Red Bulls.

“Katlego is currently playing in USA, and he has managed to garner the interest of Red Bull New York over there, which is the same team Thierry Henry played for. There are some teams here in the PSL that are interested in bringing Ntsiki back to South Africa. He is a quality player and he showed it when he played for Chiefs,” Baloyi told the Siya crew.
