If talent was a person…Tshabalala is one

Apart from his talent, he is a humble and reserved youngster, who doesn’t talk much.

SHARPEVILLE.- If there was Player of the Season award in the Emfuleni Development League at the end of the season, youngster Andile Tshabalala (13) from United Colours FC could have walked away with it.

Tshabalala is one of the most outstanding players in the Emfuleni Development League in Vanderbijlpark Stream.

He plays as a right winger taking on players and leaving some of them sprawling on the ground after he has dribbled past them. This Mahareng Secondary School learner reminds many of the former skinny Mamelodi Sundowns winger, Elias Pelembe. Tshabalala is a tricky player, very skillful especially on one-on-one situations which leaves many of his markers on the ground.

Tshabalala has all the potential to become a super star if his current performance is anything to go by. He was the most busiest player in the field when his team played against Junior Swallows FC and Seven Stars FC last Saturday. Sedibeng Ster Sport, has been following this youngster from Sharpeville for a while, and no doubt, the future looks great for him.

Apart from his talent, he is a humble and reserved youngster, who doesn’t talk much. When asked questions by Sedibeng Ster, he would only respond with one word to what he was asked. He is a “man” of few words who allows his feet to do the talking, especially in the field of play.

Speaking to Sedibeng Ster Sport, Tshabalalala said he was not aware that somebody has been following his performance.

“This will make me even work hard, knowing that somebody is watching me and this will serve as motivation to work even harder. I’m really grateful to hear all this because I was just playing without noticing that you are watching me,” he said.

United Colours FC chairman Benni Chesane said the boy comes From KZN and he was introduced to him by his father.

“I must say, he is such an amazing boy, very quiet. I thought maybe it was because he can’t hear or talk Sotho because you can hardly see or hear him talking. He is such a humble boy with a lot of respect, but very talented,” said Chesane.
