U17 Coach On Meyiwa’s Age Cheating Allegations

Shawn Bishop Refutes Meyiwa Age Cheating Claims

By Soccer Laduma - Oct 01, 2017 10:26 AM

After allegations emerged that Kaizer Chiefs’ wonderkid, Wiseman Meyiwa, has been lying about his age, his U17 national team assistant coach, Shawn Bishop has lashed out at his accusers, saying that they need to provide evidence to back up their claims before questioning his integrity.

Who Is Kaizer Chiefs’ New Trialist?

Bishop, who has been part of the Amajimbos setup as the assistant coach, has previously stated in Soccer Laduma issue number 1042 that he is certain that Meyiwa is not age cheating and has now said that those making the allegations have no evidence to prove their claims.

“If they’re accusing him (Meyiwa) of being overage, they must show us the evidence and you (the media) must call them out,” he explained. “Enough is enough.”

Chiefs To Terminate Attacker’s Deal?

Bishop went on to say that he knows nothing about the allegations claiming that Meyiwa previously operated at Maritzburg United as Wiseman Moshoeshoe in 2009 as a 14-year-old. He then concluded that Meyiwa is a special talent and commended Chiefs for discovering him.

“I’ve never heard of that (Meyiwa playing under a different identity),” he continued. “There are boys that were ahead of him in the national team setup, but, in my opinion, Chiefs have done well and he’s worked hard. He’s focused on getting better and better. We knew, three years ago, when he joined the national team setup that he had the potential to be a PSL star.”

Do you think that Wiseman Meyiwa is age cheating?

Nothing special about Meyiwa's alleged age cheating, in fact the majority of soccer players are age cheats. Nothing new here.

@Kay05 Jealousy will kill you my man. Meyiwa scored a beautiful goal on his debut day, Foster is struggling even with assist, can you see the difference and why you're so jealous?

@indidanee You're a domkop, how on earth you run so naked on Age Cheating without evidence? how much do you have in your wallet because for this allegation, Meyiwa family will take you to lawsuitcleaners and back and you'll remain with your underwear.

Which Wiseman Moshoeshoe was among the young soccer players selected in 2010 to go to Brazil under Dettol Shona Khona soccer talent search? How old was he? This boy must come out a bue nnete....tired of age cheats. These development coaches must stop protecting age cheats. K4L i remain.

Kukhona okushaya amanzi, it's not the first time we hear of such stories so we shouldn't be suprised, remember Meyiwa and his 35 year old twin brother, how quickly it was swept under the carpet? For his sake though I hope he's for real this is just some sick ploy to destabilise Khosi even further...he's such a gem.
