Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs head coach Steve Komphela says he has been impressed by new signing Siphelele Ntshangase's 'game intelligence'.

The former Baroka FC midfielder was signed by Amakhosi last week and came off the bench to replace Wiseman Meyiwa in Amakhosi's 2-1 win over Polokwane City at FNB Stadium on Saturday.

"In terms of Ntshangase's ability, I think everybody has seen what he can give," Komphela said. "One, in terms of game intelligence, you can see someone who thinks - and fitting more of a profile of a number 10. 

"There's an attempt he made where there was no space on the sides, no space in front and the only space that was available was above and he did exactly that.

"He's got technical ability, short range, long range, inter-passes - and he's accurate.

Chiefs are five points behind league leaders Mamelodi Sundowns in the Absa Premiership and are next in action on Sunday when they play Baroka FC away from home.

Kick-off is at 15:30 (SA time).
