Polokwane City defender Vukile Mngqibisa has expressed his desire to join his childhood dream team, Kaizer Chiefs, speaking exclusively to Goal
The left-footed Polokwane player confirmed to Goal that indeed he has caught the eye of some of the top Absa Premiership sides, after enjoying a fine season with the Limpopo outfit.
"Yes, several teams have contacted me and my agent. But if I was ever presented with an opportunity to join any PSL team, well it has to be Kaizer Chiefs," Mngqibisa told Goal.
"Because I grew up supporting them and my father loved them too. So, yeah, if I joined Chiefs it would be like a dream that finally came true," he said.
"The interest from other teams doesn't surprise me really. I think I played really well this past season you know. And it pushes me to do more this upcoming season," he continued.
The 26-year-old center-back who missed only four league matches, impressively netted five goals. Four of them were from penalties, though, and one a header.
"Well, I always practice them at training. But yes, I have missed a spot-kick before. We were playing against Mpumalanga Black Aces," he added.
Mngqibisa's Rise and Shine retained their status in South Africa's top flight, after defeating Black Leopards 2-1 in the final day of the PSL Promotion/Relegation playoffs.
"The break was okay, and I needed it as player. I really enjoyed it. To me, it wasn't short but we put ourselves there (Playoffs) so that's why we are not complaining," he concluded.
