Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Siphelele Ntshangase says he has a point to prove at the Naturena-based outfit.

The attacking midfielder, who was a long-term Chiefs target, recently joined the club from Baroka FC during the current PSL Transfer Window.

“I am living my dream. I knew that the pressure of playing for Kaizer Chiefs is immense. I am ready to handle it. It might not always be smooth sailing but I am ready for the challenge," he told the club's official website.

“I’ve always wanted to play for Chiefs. I want to show to the supporters that I am the right player. I am aware they wanted the club to sign me. I am thankful to get this opportunity," he continued.

Ntshangase, who made his official Chiefs debut as a substitute against Polokwane City last weekend, admitted he was surprised to get game-time so soon at Amakhosi.

“The coach told me before the match to be ready. Honestly, I didn’t expect to play so early after my arrival at Chiefs," he added.

“For a split second I was lost in the magnitude of the moment. That’s when I remembered what Siphiwe Tshabalala had advised me earlier, ‘keep it simple’. I did what he had suggested and it worked out great," he said,

“From there on, my confidence grew with each touch of the ball. I’m happy to have to the win. I’m part of a team of very talented players – in the end it has to be about the collective and not the individual.”

Chiefs will face Ntshangase's former club, Baroka in a PSL match at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Sunday.
