South Africa have always unearthed technically sound players, and it could be down to the fact that many footballers in the country learn their skills in the streets as youngsters long before being moulded at club level.
Today the Fan Park crew will now take a look at some of the most technically gifted players in the Premier Soccer League.
One of Manyisa’s most outstanding qualities is his stamina and passing. These qualities are boosted by his brilliant touch and technique. Ace always seems to make the extra touch work for him and this has made him a huge favourite amongst the supporters.
Where Dolly lacks in height, he excels in technique. When on song, Keagz can be seen floating about the pitch looking to thread a killer through ball after a clever shibobo. As the PSL Young Player of the Year, Dolly is sure to be a name we will see more of in the future.
Arguably one of the most technically talented players in the country at present, Vila has wowed crowds everywhere he goes. He also possesses the ability to drift past opposition players with consummate ease, and has good finishing ability in front of goal.
Billiat gets a mention in this regard because of his ability to run with the ball at speed. Like Dolly, Billiat was moulded by the Ajax Cape Town youth academy and they seemed to have done a great job with the Mamelodi Sundowns star.
What other technically gifted players in the PSL do you think deserve a mention?
