Former Kaizer Chiefs Football Club versatile defender Siyabonga Ngezana was handed an armband during his game for Football Club FCSB.
The former Orlando Pirates development striker, Siyabonga Ngezana, completed a shock move to Romanian giants Football Club FCSB from Kaizer Chiefs Football Club late last month.

After waiting almost a month to complete his five-year deal worth around R12 million to FCSB.
Ngezana made his debut less than a week after joining his new teammates in the Netherlands for pre-season.
SIYABONGA NGEZANA BEING ARMBAND ON HIS DEBUT FOR FCSB!
Ngezana entered the field of play in the 60th minute to make his unofficial derby for FCSB.
But his start to life in Europe started badly.
The 26-year-old was at fault for PAOK’s equaliser in the 65th minute, five minutes after coming on as a sub.
He slipped in front of the PAOK’s attacker Visilios Gordeziani.
The attacker quickly gathered the black from the left flank before beating Andrei Vlad in FCSB goals to make the scoreline 1-1.

With the club’s captain Darius Olaru not on the pitch, his vice-captain, Adrian Sut, took over as the captain for the PAOK friendly match.
However, with the game being their first match in over a month, it was always expected that most of the players won’t finish it.
In the 77th minute, Sut left the match and handed Ngezana’s captain armband for the last remaining minutes of the match.
The incident left the club’s followers with questions.
Whether the 24-year-old handed the armband to Ngezana to boost his confidence after a rocky start to life in Europe, or he is part of the club’s leaders ahead of the new season.
