Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs centre-back Daniel Cardoso has thanked head coach Steve Komphela for playing a crucial role in the advancement of his career.

It was under Komphela at previous club Free State Stars where Cardoso made his breakthrough into the Absa Premiership. 

Before that, he had struggled to make the grade at the Jomo Cosmos, Orlando Pirates and Bidvest Wits academies.

The central defender was close to walking away from the game until his father persuaded him to give it another shot, this time at Free State Stars.

Along with Maritzburg United, Chiefs have the best defensive record in the league this season – 11 conceded in 19 matches. 

Next up for Cardoso and his Amakhosi team-mates is a league clash against Bidvest Wits at the Bidvest Stadium on Saturday evening.

kick-off is at 18:00.
