Kaizer Chiefs have extended the contract of defender Siyabonga Ngezana for three years with an option to extend with a further two years. This potentially means he will be with Amakhosi for another five years.
The 23-year-old player joined Amakhosi as a Youth Development Academy player at the age of 17. He spent two years in the junior structures before being promoted to the senior team where he scored on his debut against Mamelodi Sundowns in October 2017.
“The feeling is great,” says Ngezana with a smile after signing a new contract. “It always feels like I’m joining the club for the first time when I sign a new contract. I am looking forward to repaying the club by working hard and hopefully winning trophies.”
The lanky defender has been a regular in the team this season and will be travelling with the team to Angola for the Group C game in the Champions League against Petro de Luanda.
“I’d really like to thank the chairman, Mr Kaizer Motaung and the management for the faith and trust they’ve shown in me,” he concludes. “I’d also like to give thanks to my family for all the support. We will have a small celebration at home today. But what I know is that real work starts now!”
