Bafana Bafana striker Kermit Erasmus was once considered one of the world's 50 most exciting teenagers to watch, but there is one person who did not believe he existed... Did you see the player's response?
The former Orlando Pirates striker, who is yet to make an appearance for Rennes this season, has seen his name circulate around the internet this past week after a list from 10 years ago featured his name as one of the world's most exciting prospects.
In the list, "KE9" was considered to be at the level of Karim Benzema, Angel Di Maria, Toni Kroos, Alexis Sanchez and many more, while many players saw their careers drift away from greatness.
The list was posted on Twitter by Mohamed Moallim, and one person wrote back saying he didn't believe such a person with the name Kermit Erasmus existed.
