French Move On The Cards For SA Youngster?

Young Kabelo Seriba has slipped under the radar in recent years since turning out for South Africa at youth level, but the 21-year-old is going from strength to strength at Metta.
 
 
The full back has played 22 games for the Latvian club so far this season, scoring one and assisting two, and played a key role in helping them secure a spot in the Latvian Cup semi-final. 
 
Last night, however, they were narrowly beaten to a spot in the final by Riga after a 2-1 defeat, though there is some good news for the former Amajita man as he pushes for the next chapter in his career.
 
Seriba has been almost ever-present for Metta throughout their 2018 league campaign so far and spoke to Soccer Laduma about his time in Latvia and the struggles of making it in Europe.
 
Seriba said, “It was not an easy journey for me to be where I am now, but I was always supported by family and I was always motivated by the likes of Kwanele Kopo, Shakes Mashaba, Thabo Senong and Vusi Thenjekwayo during my development stages.
"They always emphasised the fact that to be a successful player or to live like a king you need to work hard like a slave. It was just like a dream for me, but I just want to take this time and thank the Almighty God for the blessing.”
 
According to Siya sources, the defender has now started attracting interest from France, and his club may face a battle to keep hold of him when the January transfer window opens up next year.
