SA Teen Secures Portuguese Contract
Another South African youngster has made his way into Europe, with the talented striker, Sibusiso Shibane, joining Vitória Setúbal.
The 18-year-old South African youth international started his European adventure last year when he went over to Portugal to train with Sporting Clube de Portugal, although he then returned to KZN Academy in Mzansi.
Now, as he seeks to continue his progression in the game, it has been confirmed that he has joined Setúbal.
The academy said in a statement, “The KZN Football Academy would like to, with great pride, announce that Sibusiso Shibane has signed for Victoria Setubal in Portugal.
"The academy works tirelessly to create opportunities for our players with the objective of not only changing their lives but their family and their community as role models of what you are able to achieve if you have the talent, work hard, are committed and are determined to succeed in life.
“We also look forward to seeing Sbu in the future representing our Bafana Bafana at the highest level. We would like to thank the KZN Football Academy European partners, our staff and all who have worked tirelessly and continue in the background to ensuring the success of our players.”
