Amakhosi Words Of Wisdom For Upcoming Stars

Brylon Petersen Has A Message For Young Kaizer Chiefs Hopefuls

By Soccer Laduma - Jun 25, 2018 10:01 AM
Studying is a must for budding young footballers according to one of Kaizer Chiefs’ goalkeepers, who says it ‘has to be done’ in order to be safe in the long run.
 
Brylon Petersen has been with the Amakhosi for a while now and has committed several years to his studies at Wits University prior to – hopefully – completing his course this year. 
 
 
The 22-year-old, who has been studying Mechanical Engineering since 2014, thinks that it is paramount for players to get an education as well as improving themselves on the pitch, in case things don’t end up working out. 
 
He told Chiefs’ official website, “Soccer is a short career, that’s why players need to study to be able to fall back on something when their career is over. 
 
“It can be done. To be honest it has to be done because players often don’t save enough money to be able to afford to study after their playing days. That’s when they get caught out, having no income and not sure what to do next.” 
 
In terms of how his studies have helped him on the field, the shot-stopper added, “I am better at applying the coach’s instruction, understanding the various tactical concepts and improving my reading of the game. As the saying goes, ‘educated players are better players’.” 
 
Petersen is still awaiting his first appearance for the Glamour Boys, but with Brilliant Khuzwayo having moved on, he could get his chance in 2018/19.
