Jeffrey Ntuka To Debut For Kaizer Chiefs Tomorrow

Kaizer Chiefs recent signing Jeffrey Ntuka will finally make his long-awaited PSL (Premier Soccer League) debut on Saturday against Bidvest Wits at the Atteridgeville Super Stadium.
Ntuka has fully recovered from a nagging knee injury that has delayed his introduction to local football.

Ntuka, who signed for Chiefs at the end of January from Belgium club Westerlo, has spent the past six weeks travelling between the doctors’ room and the training grounds at Naturena. Amakhosi coach Muhsin Ertugral reveals that he will be handing the dreadlocked utility player his debut on Saturday.

“He [Ntuka] will start tomorrow,” Ertugral confirms. “He has been back at full training for the past two weeks. But he had to rest his knee a bit after he collided with another player at training and the knee suffered a minor puncture.

“However, he is ready to play tomorrow and will start,” Ertugral told without wanting to give away which position Ntuka will play. Ntuka would have played in a mid-week friendly match but that was cancelled.

The former Amaglug-glug skipper has never played club football in South Africa after having moved to the Chelsea reserves straight from the School of Excellence as a teenager before being loaned out to Westerlo in Belgium where he spent six years.

The 23 year-old – highly rated by Ertugral – signed a three-year contract with Chiefs and has now overtaken Dominic Isaacs, who is still fighting his way back to full fitness since signing at the beginning of the season from Ajax Cape Town.
