SA Star Who Almost Played In Serie A Reviving Career Outside Mzansi

A South African midfielder, who once had a trial with Udinese in Italy’s Serie A, is doing well in reviving his career outside of Mzansi.

In 2011, while still on the books of Bidvest Wits as a 17-year-old, Asive Langwe was invited for trials at Udinese.

Langwe spent two weeks on trial with the Italian giants, and according to information communicated from Wits at the time, the player was said to have impressed the Serie A club's technical team, although he was not signed.

At the time, it was reported that the Italian club had a problem with its foreign quota, which led to the player not being signed.

Following his struggles with getting a club in the PSL, after he officially parted ways with the Students in 2016, Langwe has been handed an opportunity to revive his career in Swaziland with Malanti Chiefs, whom he joined at the beginning of the season and is doing well at the Swazi outfit.

Earlier in his career, Langwe caught the attention of coach Pitso Mosimane at Mamelodi Sundowns with his talent. 

In 2015, the player spent weeks training with Downs under Mosimane, before he was signed by Ajax Cape Town later that year.
