Former Kaizer Chiefs academy graduate Darrel Matsheke is impressing during his trial at Stellenbosch FC.

The midfielder is currently training with Steve Barker’s side, with the hope of securing a permanent move to the club.

According to Barker, Matsheke has already left a major impression on the coaching staff.

The 24-year-old midfielder made just 12 appearances for Kaizer Chiefs after being promoted to the first team in 2020.

He was loaned out to Uthongathi in 2021 before joining Swallows on loan in 2022. The Amakhosi management took the decision to release him from his contract at the end of last season.

“We going to look at him. We are going to assess where he has, it’s been difficult he joined us when we were in Gauteng.” Barker said as quoted by KickOff.

“He will travel back with the squad to Cape Town. We will give him the opportunity. With what I have seen in the last two training sessions I was quite impressed. But yeah, we will give him a good assessment and will take it from there.”

Ntseki looking at the positives

The most important thing is for us to understand the three types of results. We played this game looking to have a win, and when you don’t win the game, yes, you are disappointed, but you also look at the positives,” the Kaizer Chiefs coach said, as quoted by TimesLive.

“The positives are that we had very good ball possession, we had very good tactical movements going forward in shifting play and changing points of attack.

“And it’s hard work for the players to get into those goalscoring positions. It’s for them to understand our approach in attack.”
