Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs starlet Nkosingiphile Ngcobo is focused on securing his future outside of football and admitted he is glad the club encourages him to do so.
The 17-year-old, who has starred for the South Africa U20 team in recent times, believes that having prospects outside of the game is important in the long term.
"I am an attacking midfielder. This is the position I grew up playing and I enjoy it very much. I attend Orlando High," he told the club's official website.
"I am in Grade 12 and so far so good, it is going well. It is important to be educated, as I will need that after football.
"I would like to become a top businessman in future. It's great that we are encouraged at Chiefs' development to look after our studies."
Ngcobo added that he would like to be a part of the Amajita squad that will take part in the U20 World Cup in May and June.
"It's really great that we have qualified and I hope that I will get an opportunity to prove myself to join the final Amajita squad that will travel to South Korea," the teenager said.
