The 6 Most Represented Foreign Countries In The PSL

Which Nations Have The Most Players In The PSL?

By Soccer Laduma - Jul 31, 2017 10:24 AM

Football has become an increasingly global game and we now take a look at the nations that have been represented in the Absa Premiership.

Another New Face At Kaizer Chiefs!

Click through the images above to see which foreign countries had the most players registered across all of last season’s 16 PSL teams.

Football leagues around the world frequently boast a sizeable foreign contingent, with clubs looking beyond their borders to enhance the quality of their respective squads and South Africa is no exception. In fact, there were no fewer than 25 nations represented in last season’s campaign, all the way from New Zealand to Colombia and even Austria.

All in all, there were 84 players from foreign countries plying their trade in Mzansi, which makes up for 14.8% of the total number of players registered. It won’t come as a surprise to many that Zimbabwe ranks at the top of the foreign players' list, with 22 players representing our neighbouring country in the league. Amongst those players are Khama Billiat, Tendai Ndoro and Willard Katsande.

Way behind in second place is another neighbouring country, Namibia, with nine players, including Henrico Botes, Dean Hotto and Maximillian Mbaeva turning out for their respective clubs. Following them is Malawi, with the likes of Gabadinho Mhango, Robert Ng’ambi and Limbikani Mzava making up the numbers for their seven representatives in the league.

Tied in third is Zambia, with Collins Mbesuma and Lewis Macha making up the most notable of their country’s players in the league, while Ghana and Nigeria both had five players that were on the books of various clubs in the top flight.

Not convincing at all, why not built our players to make it better. I suggest not to consider it because SAFA and PSL clubs no doing it well and behind all this

We now know why the standard of our league is so low. We need more quality players from countries such as Senegal, Mali, Ghana, Nigeria, Egypt, Cameroon. We need to recruit from this Africa superpowers to make our league strong.I am not taking anything from our neighbours but they're not adding anything to our league except the Zambians.
