2 Chiefs Youngsters Head To Tokyo

Two Kaizer Chiefs players are heading from Morocco to Tokyo rather than back to South Africa after Saturday’s 3-0 loss to Al Ahly in the CAF Champions League final in Casablanca.

Nkosingiphile Ngcobo and Reeve Frosler are heading to join up with David Notoane’s under-23 team, ahead of the start of the Tokyo Olympic Games next week.

Both Frosler and Ngcobo were in the starting line-up for Chiefs last night as they succumbed to Al Ahly after being reduced to ten men at the end of the first half.

Frosler and Ngcobo are excited about heading to Tokyo.

“ It’s a good feeling, I mean, another achievement for me in my career, another opportunity to showcase my talents at the highest stage at under 23 level, “Frosler told Chiefs’s media department. “So ja, very excited about it.”

“Very happy. It’s a great opportunity and I’ll make sure I work hard,” Ngcobo said.

The players say they hope to learn from their experience in last night’s CAF Champions League final.

“Ja, obviously a lot of experience and of lot of lessons learnt in the game yesterday,” Frosler continued. “I’m disappointed about the result. But we move, we move and we keep getting better. And we take this experience into the Olympics and hopefully we can do well there.”

“Ja, it was also another great experience. So I’m just grateful and very happy,” Ngcobo added.

And what do they hope to achieve at the Olympics?

“Like I said, hopefully I can get a few games under the belt and showcase my talent  to the world,” Frosler said. “And ja, hopefully just get an opportunity to play again.”

“Just some game time and improvement, to just improve my game,” Ngcobo concluded.
