Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates may have just found the next Doctor Khumalo and Benni McCarthy!
Boitumelo Radiopane, remember the name. He is the future of Orlando Pirates and SA football.
The Soweto giants have just found extremely special talents.
These two men could just be the future of Amakhosi, the Bucs and South African football.
The find of the season in the most reason DStv Diski Challenge has several characteristics that remind us of Bafana Bafana and Bucs legend Benni McCarthy. Radiopane scored 23 goals in just 27 appearances in the DDC. He was unsurprisingly names as the tournaments best player.
However, this is just the beginning for Radiopane. He made four DStv Premiership appearances this season and was nine goals clear of the DDC’s second-highest goalscorer.
Proving he is levels above the rest of the competition and he is only just warming up to his peak. Most players only peak at about 24, so he will only get better. He is lethal off of both feet, his head and he is as dynamic as McCarthy was during his time with Porto and Blackburn Rovers.
Much like McCarthy, he is a prolific goal scorer from a young age.
A clinical finisher and attack-minded player who plays positive and scintillating football! On to the other side of Soweto, where rivals Chiefs seem to have found the next Khumalo…
DOCTOR KHUMALO’ESQUE STAR
Introducing Mduduzi Shabalala. At just 17 years of age he has already made an impact in Spain. Trialling for La Liga side Villarreal, where he made an instant impression.
Shabalala was also one of the best performers in this year’s MDC. He is certainly one for future, keep your eyes on him Amakhosi!
He as already made his mark in SA and Europe despite being a minor! Imagine how good he will get.
Much like Khumalo, he is prolific in front of goal and a highly talented dribbler. He also had a brief stint in the DStv Premiership but it was only for three minutes. However, he made it into the senior side at just 17 years old and has a truly bright future ahead of him.
