Nkosingiphile Ngcobo hopes to impress coach Stuart Baxter
In other news about Nkosingiphile Ngcobo, Briefly News reported that Ngcobo, who is a midfielder for Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs, has not been featuring much for Amakhosi this season and has been given the duty of being a super-sub by Stuart Baxter.
In the previous campaign, Ngcobo would feature regularly and started 34 of 40 games that he played. However, under Stuart Baxter, he seems to have been demoted to the bench, which is a bit of a questionable decision since the team lacks creativity.
Before the game against Marumo Gallants, the 21-year-old midfielder had only played 55 minutes in three substitute appearances and was unused in the two other games, which he has spent on the bench, according to a report by KickOff.
