DURBAN – Siphelele Ntshangase was Kaizer Chiefs' main weapon in the first few matches of the season but he hasn’t featured in the past three matches for Amakhosi.
Chiefs coach, Giovanni Solinas, explained why the fan favourite has struggled for game time recently.
“In the last three games we played Katsande (Willard) and Maluleka (George) and then Katsande and Dux (Aro Andrianarimanana) because at the moment we need more balance in the midfield. In the last three games we haven’t conceded a goal.
The fact that we haven’t conceded a goal, it is not only because the defence has done well but the midfielders have done well in front of the defenders. Ntshangase is a very good player but he is more offensive. He is an attacking midfielder," Solinas said.
Ntshangase was on the bench last weekend when Chiefs got the better of SuperSport United at Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban in the Telkom Knockout. It was the same story again on Wednesday against Black Leopards and this past weekend against Chippa United in the league.
