Many of Kaizer Chiefs transfer targets have slipped through the cracks and ended up at other clubs during this window. The most recent and stinging one was Sibusiso Vilakazi and his move to Mamelodi Sundowns. One of the last beacons of hope is Siphelele Ntshangase, but he comes at a price…
Some supporters have urged Bobby Motaung to break the trend of signing free agents.
"Come on Bobby, for once in your life spend money, this is our future, then Chiefs will be unstoppable." – Philani827
"If I was Bobby, I would buy this boy based on three facts: that he is good, young and an already established future key player. At 23, R5 million is nothing compared to the R10 million plus that they were supposed to dish out for 26-year-old Villa." – delanih
Some supporters have questioned whether Ntshangase is really worth the reported R5 million that Chiefs have tabled for the youngster.
"Ntshangase is a very good and exciting player. He will give us a new dimension going forward, he is still young and has a bright future ahead, but surely he is not worth R5 million, that is quite a lot of money. To those who believe that KC doesn't have money, that is nonsense, KC is not only one of the biggest teams in SA, it is thee team in SA and the biggest sports club in southern Africa, with lots of sponsors; not so long ago Vodacom showered it with a R500 million sponsorship for the next five years, which means it is R100 million per season. It is just that they have policies in place that guides the team in terms of expenditure." – Akhu4sbu
"No sense in paying R5 million for an NFD player. Just like Cosmos, he may be too good for NFD but weak for PSL... I support whatever Bobby decides to do... We are not paying tender prices for a player that has achieved nothing... We have learned our lesson with Xulu." – Fanaticalism
Would you pay this money for Ntshangase?
