Eric Mathoho is trending on social media as calls keep growing for Njabulo Ngcobo to replace him. Ngcobo was signed by Kaizer Chiefs during the transfer window and he hasn't got any game time so far from coach Stuart Baxter.

After a virtual press conference this morning from Baxter, fans began to air their frustrations about Ngcobo not playing. Baxter said that he is still assessing him, much to the irritation of Kaizer Chiefs fans.

Now, the defensive partnership of Eric Mathoho and Daniel Cardoso is not what the fans are looking for any more. Amakhosi also signed Austin Dube, who featured in the game against Mamelodi Sundowns over the weekend.

Kaizer Chiefs fans have been reacting online and are definitely not impressed. Check out some of the reactions below:

Njabulo Ngcobo's camp unhappy with the lack of game time

Briefly News previously reported that Njabulo Ngcobo's agent, King Ngubane, has acknowledged the defender is unhappy at Kaizer Chiefs, fearing he could lose his Bafana Bafana spot due to a lack of game time.

Ngcobo, the reigning DStv Premiership Defender of the Season, was expected to waltz into the starting XI when he joined Chiefs from Swallows at the start of the season.

The 27-year-old centre-back, though, has yet to appear in a game with Eric Mathoho and Daniel Cardoso being favoured ahead of him, according to a report by SowetanLIVE.
