Polokwane City defender Vukile Mngqibisa has expressed his desire to join his childhood dream team, Kaizer Chiefs, speaking exclusively to GoalMngqibisa is courted by top Gauteng teams, reportedly SuperSport United, Bidvest Wits and Orlando Pirates.
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.
