Njabulo Blom has had a first-hand taste of what the consequences will be if you underperform at Kaizer Chiefs. It seems like Arthur Zwane has no mercy.
Rebuilding the club will take a perfect job on the pitch and that’s what ‘10111’ is looking for.
Blom had a “terrible” game against Royal AM on Saturday according to the Glamour Boys mentor. The 22-year-old right-back was then dropped when AmaKhosi faced Maritzburg United on Tuesday.
However, Blom was brought on late in the second half replacing Dillon Solomons.
Zwane says no one has a guaranteed spot in his team.

BLOM ‘HAD A TERRIBLE GAME’ – ARTHUR ZWANE
“When it comes to Njabulo, he knows very well that he had a terrible game by his standards,” he said in the post-match press conference as quoted by iDiski Times.
“[But] those things they do happen, they happen to the best players in the world.
“From the beginning of the season, in pre-season, all the players were told we’re going to create competition. There is no player that will leave his home, knowing he’ll just walk into the first XI.
“Everyone will have to dig deeper. Everyone will have to show that he’s good enough to play for a team of Kaizer Chiefs’ calibre and all the players they knew very well.
“Njabulo knew as well, if he doesn’t perform, more especially in his position as right-back, there is Reeve [Frosler], there is [Dillan] Solomons who did very well today, so he must up his game and it goes to everyone, not only him, to all the players.
“[Kgaogelo] Sekgota came in today, we substituted Keagan Dolly and he went in there and gave us what we expected of him. As I said it’s a healthy competition and it starts from training.”
