Still more to come from the intelligent Edson Castillo - Molefi Ntseki

Kaizer Chiefs coach Molefi Ntseki believes more is to come from newly-signed central midfielder Edson Castillo.

Speaking to the media after the MTN8 quarter-final match where Castillo scored a last-gasp winner as they beat Cape Town City 2-1 at the Athlone stadium yesterday, Ntseki says the Venezuelan anchorman is still fully adjusting to local conditions. 

Castillo has had a growing presence in Chiefs’ three matches so far this season, displaying some intelligent play in the midfield, which have won him some admiration from his teammates and Ntseki, who labels him a special player.

"We had scouts going to Venezuela to watch him play, and we saw a player that we need at the club because we needed someone with authority and confidence on the ball, and somebody with a little bit of intelligence in dealing with situations," highlighted Ntseki.

"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.

"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."
