Cape Town - Owen Da Gama says that Siphelele Ntshangase has unlimited potential and is already good enough to play at the best club side in the world.

Ntshangase helped Da Gama’s Amaglug-glug side secure a 1-1 draw in Zimbabwe on the weekend in their Olympic Games qualifier.

“This boy is absolutely unbelievable, the way he just destroyed the midfielders and defenders on Sunday was just breath-taking,” Da Gama told Sport24.

“If only you could have seen that goal, how he beats two players – he like dances past players like they don’t exist, his motion is very smooth.

“He makes people play around him, he makes people get involved.

“In the last two minutes he created a move with eight passes through the defence and he gave it to Zuma but unfortunately he missed it.”

Sport24 asked Da Gama whether or not he believed Ntshangase could nail down a starting spot at a top PSL club but the Amaglug-glug coach was categorical that the Black Leopards man could go even further.

“There is no doubt about it, no doubt . . . for me the boy can even walk into the Barcelona team now, he is just so intelligent.

“I don’t think he realises how good he is.”
