A LOT MORE TO COME
According to the former Bafana Bafana coach, it is still early days in terms of what Castillo will deliver in a Chiefs jersey.
“And I think he’s bringing that to the team – by the way, it was only his third game in South Africa, and there’s still more to come from him because he appears to be a very intelligent midfielder,” Ntseki added.

“So, in terms of the pace, I think he still has to adjust also to the weather conditions, as well as the understanding of the type of opponents we play against, and also the type of players that will always play around him.
“I think in terms of tactical cohesion and understanding, we still have a long way to go to be a solid team, tactically,” Ntseki concluded.
For now, Ntseki’s side is focused on the visit to Mpumalanga to face TS Galaxy on Sunday, 20 August at 15:00.
