Kaizer Chiefs players in the form of Nkosingiphile Ngcobo and versatile player Njabulo Blom have been rewarded with brand new cars for their contributions. The Amakhosi duo has been a revelation for coach Gavin Hunt’s troops this current season and have stood out above their peers.
Both players are in their breakthrough seasons for the Glamour Boys, having made their debuts in the top flight last season. In partnership with their vehicle sponsor, Toyota South Africa, Chiefs announced the prizes on their social media pages.
Ngcobo and Blom were rewarded for their effort s with cars worth around R450 000 for their impressive displays in the DStv premiership and in the CAF Champions League.
Ngcobo and Blom were voted for by fans as Chiefs' 'Players that have it all' for December/January and February/March respectively.
Taking a glance at their contributions, the former MultiChoice Diski Challenge players have made major strides in their development and established themselves as first-team regulars.
The club's marketing director Jessica Motaung said it was exciting to see the youngsters doing well and getting rewarded. Motaung said:
"This is an exciting day. It is great to see the youngsters receiving these awards and being presented with Toyota Corollas for them to drive for a few months. It is wonderful to do this with @ToyotaSA. This is part of our fan engagement."
Also known as ‘Mshini’, Ngcobo has featured in 35 while Blom has amassed 40 appearances under coach Hunt across all competitions this term.
According to media reports, the two players are expected were given a trophy and a brand new, recently-launched Toyota Corolla 2.0 XR CVT vehicles.
On the other hand, Ngcobo and Blom will be allowed to drive around in flashy cars for a limited period before having to return them to Toyota.
Meanwhile, Briefly News reported that Chiefs have confirmed the presence of Sao Tome player, Jardel Nazare, in their camp as they look to bolster their ranks.
Amakhosi are still barred from signing players as per the ruling by FIFA but they are now preparing to bring in new faces. Coach Hunt is already planning for life beyond this season and having a player such as Nazare means they will go all-out in the transfer market.
The Naturena-based club has since confirmed that the Sao Tome international is currently training with the first team.
