Amajita Striker Wants To Follow In His Father’s Footsteps

Amajita debutant Khanyisile Mayo says he is proud of no longer being the 'Black Sheep' of the family following his first cap for the U-20 men’s national team.

Khanyisile is the son of former Bafana Bafana and Kaizer Chiefs player, Partick Mayo and first burst onto the scene for the Amajimbos. Following his call-up to Thabo Senong’s Amajita side ahead of the U-20 Afcon qualifiers against Malawi, the 19-year-old attributed his selection for the national side, to hard work.

“I was so happy to play my debut match against Zambia. I almost scored a goal but unfortunately, it didn’t happen, but I’m happy with the performance I produced,” said the young striker to Soccer Laduma. 

“My dad was happy and told me to make him proud. When the coach called me from the bench I knew it was my time. I was hungry to play and when I came on I know I affected the game and changed the tempo and made the game faster. 

“I will continue to work hard as we prepare for Malawi. But whether I start or not the performance of the team is high because all the players are ready to play,” added Mayo.

Amajita play the Malawian U-20s this coming weekend at the Moruleng Stadium in Rustenburg. The match will start at 15:30.
