Players come and go in football, however others have special capilities abilities to be memorable and be forever remembered by fans. It is usually more special when a player manages to stand out from an early age and catches the eye of the masses. This star is definitely one of the special group of players who have talent and he has shown this consistently in Kasi tournaments against some of the best players.
At the age of 16 he has already made a name for himself around the townships of Gauteng and many have applauded his maturity at such an early age. The star has faced off against urban legends when it comes to Kasi football like Tsepo 'Skhwama' Matete. Many have been campaigning for him to get picked by one of the professional clubs and this has finally become a reality.
Siyabonga Mndebele has been signed by Orlando Pirates and was he already made his debut with Multi Choice Diski Challange squad. The youngster is a fullback who is technically gifted, skilful and more importantly has nerves of steel. His story has been amazing to watch and it is even more beautiful to see him edge one step closer towards his dream.
The star will have the opportunity to develop and master his game with the Buccaneers and a chance to progress to the first team. The club has really had a decent turnover of players who have been promoted over the years and there couldn't be a better time to be within the structures. He has the potential to transform into a great player and that is up to him and that's if he can manage to stay disciplined and focused.
Photographer Víno Snap has been very instrumental in the Youngster joining Orlando Pirates after following and documenting his games. This is definitely an inspiring story and it does to show that football has the ability to bring people together. There has been a lack of scouting happening in the township which is why it is great to people like Vino filling in the gap and making sure that the talented is spotted.
