Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela has been pleased with the progress shown by exciting young winger Hendrick Ekstein this season.
Ekstein's skill on the ball has made him an instant favourite of the Amakhosi faithful and Komphela is encouraged by how much he has improved already, but warned Ekstein not to get ahead of himself.
"He is playing now at the highest level. Players around him as much make him look better," Komphela told KickOff.
"It does have the sort of effect in terms of mental capacity when he says, 'I am now arrogant because I am in charge'.
"Or his level of arrogance is suppressed by those around because is playing alongside big players who also have to help him and carry him with a hand, which our players are doing now.
"With regards to the fans, we appreciate the fact they love players who can play - it's part of our DNA.
"He also reminds you of Ace Khuse, his style of running, the way he touches the ball, very intelligent, very nippy.
"But we can only give him enough time to grow to his full potential. We love to support him," Komphela concluded.
