Kaizer Chiefs defender Njabulo Blom dreams of one day playing for a big European club like Spanish giants Real Madrid.
The versatile 19-year-old, who doubles as a midfielder and defender, has been earning a lot of praise since making his top-flight debut in Chiefs’ 2-0 Absa Premiership victory over Golden Arrows last month.
His meteoric rise this campaign, coupled with a few eye-catching performances, have earned him four appearances and four starts alongside the likes of Daniel Cardoso and Yagan Sasman.
Blom admits he would like to achieve success with Amakhosi to hopefully one day earn a move to Real Madrid in the Spanish LaLiga.
It’s also pleasing, he says, to see one of the big clubs in the country doing well this term since many people have displayed their love for Amakhosi.
‘I have big dreams and what I want to achieve now in life is to be the first South African player to play for a big team like Real Madrid in Spain,’ Blom told the media.
‘That is my biggest wish and I am confident that it can happen. I work very hard every day at training, because I really want to see my dreams materialising.
‘But, I know that anything is possible as long as I believe and make sure that I pray and work hard to get there.
‘It’s disappointing for a big team to be going throughout the whole season without winning a trophy. It’s not really nice because a lot of people love Chiefs and they want to see the team doing well. I am just glad that we have been able to pick ourselves up from last season.’
Kaizer Chiefs will now turn their attention to the Absa Premiership when they welcome Bloemfontein Celtic to the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday, with kick-off scheduled for 8:15pm.
