Premier League

The future of South African Football & the next Benni McCarthy is playing for Orlando Pirates?

Although Mamelodi Sundowns currently have the best team in the country and are the most successful team in the country they can't necessarily have everything all at once

Although they have a youth academy and they have a similar playing style as well Mamelodi Sundowns do not quite have a history and a tradition of producing top young players themselves

That's where Orlando Pirates and both Kaizer Chiefs step in per say as although they have been on an endless trophy run for the past six seasons or so the club are still managing to produce top young players

And it is no surprise why growing up young football players do not necessarily have the desire to play or represent Mamelodi Sundowns but they rather have the desire to one day play for Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs

Which is the biggest reason why Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates ahead of all the other DSTV Premiership teams are able to produce the most talented young players

Most recently it also appears that Orlando Pirates have now probably developed one of the best young players in South Africa in talented young star striker Boitumelo Radiopane

Such has been the rise of the striker one of his coaches at youth level in Themba Dlamini is of the belief that he is probably the future of South African Football and could possibly be the next Benni McCarthy according to & courtesy of reports from

"This is what I told the Iron Duke Dr Irvin Khoza when I presented the boy to him upon his signing by the club. The boy will give this country what is needed for a while now, which is scoring goals,"

"The boy is a goal poacher and the next Benni McCarthy that this country will have,"

For South Africa as a country this comes as much welcomed good news as Boitumelo Radiopane now joins an exclusive list of potential new top class strikers in Evidence Makgopa, Bongokuhle Hlongwane

Going forward those could be the three players who play a crucial part in the success of the national team and a period of success never ever been seen before in South African Football
