Chiefs Youngster: The Hardest Part…

Kaizer Chiefs youngster, Nkonsingiphile Ngcobo opened up about what the hardest part of the past few months has been for him.

The 20-year-old midfielder was promoted to the Amakhosi first team in August 2017 and finally made his professional debut in a 1-0 win over Maritzburg United last year, March. 

However, the young star’s progress was hampered after an Achilles tendon rapture which ruled him out of action for several months.

Speaking on Chiefs’ official website, here is what Ngcobo had to say about the past few months in lockdown during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“At first it was challenging and really hard to accept the situation,” he said.

“I changed my daily routine and got used to being indoors at all times. As much as it is hard, I think there are some positives out of it such as developing new skills. The hardest part about this lockdown is that it happened when I was making good progress.

“I was getting ready and happy to be back on the field. I believe that it’s a challenge for my mental strength. I just need to stay positive, motivated and focus on the bigger picture.

“I keep busy with exercising. I am a professional and I must stay fit and healthy. I focus on my studies and play video games for entertainment. 

“I spend three hours studying every day from Monday to Friday. I divide it into one hour in the morning, midday, and night,” he added.
