Erick Mathoho became a fearless defender while coming through the ranks of Bloemfontein Celtic. When Mathoho broke into the senior team, he partnered captain and fellow Bafana centre back, Thabo Nthethe. The two formed a formidable partnership, before Tower was sold to Kaizer Chiefs for a reported R5 million.
Mathoho has enjoyed a spectacular season with the Amakhosi, while cementing his place at the heart of the defence.
He played a major part in Bafana’s recent World Cup Qualifiers, where he was reunited with former teammate, Thabo Nthethe.
