Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs legend Doctor Khumalo, now working at Baroka FC, says he was consulted by his former employers ahead of Siphelele Ntshangase's move to the Glamour Boys.

Khumalo ended a long-standing relationship with Chiefs as a player and a coach when he took up a new challenge last August as technical director at Bakgaga.

Ntshangase, a player in a similar mould to which Khumalo was as a player, is believed to have been on Amakhosi's radar for some time before signing for the Soweto giants last week.

Khumalo has revealed that he was involved in making the deal a reality.

"I did have a chat with Ntshangase," he told KickOff

"I received a call from Bobby [Motaung, Football Manager at Chiefs]. He was in the board with the chairman [Kaizer Motaung] and Steve [coach, Komphela]. He asked my view about him coming to Chiefs and I gave them my view and that's probably the reason he is there," said the former Bafana Bafana midfeild maestro.

Khumalo also gave Ntshangase some advice on what he can expect as a Chiefs player.

"Playing for Chiefs is not an easy task. You sleep once and you will never regain, you are out. 

"That's the biggest team in the country, so you don't go out there to prove a point but to go out there and enjoy yourself."

The 24-year-old Ntshangase could potentially face his former team when Chiefs meet with Baroka at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
