South Africa has given birth to some of the most unique football players we have ever seen, one can only but think of legends such as Jomo Sono, Benni McCarthy and the ever skilful Scara Ngobese. They all have one thing in common, and that is ‘Kasi Flavour’.
In modern times, however, Sundowns also have some of the best tricksters in the league and today the Fan Park crew will take a look at some of the men with the best moves at Chloorkop.
A South African, and indeed a Sundowns Legend, Moriri was always known as one of the most skilful players in the country and more prominently, he was known to have a deft first touch. When receiving the ball, you always knew Moriri was going to control the ball with perfection.
Bursting on the scene as a precocious playmaker at Orlando Pirates, Modise wowed spectators with some of the most outlandish skills we have ever seen. Since then, he has been moulded into the all round playmaker, showing off the odd bit of skill here and there.
Clive Barker labelled Zwane as the next Doctor Khumalo, and by the way plays, we can see why. Zwane plays with the traditional swagger of a South African trickster, with his quick feet and sublime technique.
He may not be at Chloorkop yet, but when he returns from his loan spell at Ajax Cape Town, Downs will add yet another trickster to their ranks. A popular player in the Mother City, many young fans adore Dolly’s style of play. Nimble, quick and with an ability to bamboozle defenders, Dolly is indeed one of the brightest talents in the country.
Who other players skillful players at Downs do you admire?
