Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana defender Ramahlwe Mphahlele says he has a lot of belief in fellow national team youngster Reeve Frosler, though the Bidvest Wits star has much to learn. 

The pair are in Stuart Baxter's Bafana squad for the upcoming Four Nations tournament involving Zimbabwe, Zambia and Angola which starts on Thursday. 

Nonetheless, 28-year-old Mphahlele says that 20-year-old Frosler has plenty of talent but has to keep working hard to ensure he reaches his full potential in the right-back position.

Speaking to Sunday World, he said: "I've watched Frosler and he's got the potential to be a good player. He's a youngster and he's obviously still learning and coached by Coach Gavin (Hunt), who knows how to deal with youngsters. 

"Let's give him time and let him get the experience to play at a higher level; play for Wits and play for the national team. He's a good player and I love his work ethic. 

"He doesn't ever complicate things, so he's a good player and he must just keep his head down and just know that there's still a long way to go.

The Chiefs star added that the Four Nations was an opportunity to shine, saying: "I can still perform like I did when I played for Bafana, so it's not a surprise, because it's not like there is a new coach. 

"It's still the same coach, so he knows what I can do and he knows if I will help the team or not. If he calls me, he believes I will help the team."
