Sundowns Youngster Shines

Mamelodi Sundowns academy player, Khayelihle Shozi, has been impressive with his sublime performances at the Sanlam Kay Motsepe Schools Cup national finals.

The striker from Clapham High School scored eight goals in four games as he went on to become the top goal scorer at the competition. Shozi comes from Pinetown in KwaZulu-Natal.

The grade 11 pupil was brought to Sundowns by his mentor Mabhuti Khanyeza, in 2010, during Khanyeza's time with the Brazilians.

In a press release sent to Soccer-Laduma Shozi talks about the progress he has made in his flourishing career.

“I played for Rockers FC, owned by Mabhuti, since I was six years old. He took me in and groomed me into what I am today. Not many kids from Klarotha (Klaarwater) get the chance to be mentored by a professional and then be part of an academy like Sundowns. My biggest problem is that I am not the best academic and Sundowns demand good results as well as good football.

"Scoring the goals is a morale booster for me, as well as the team, and it has inspired me to do even better. Before I left home I set a goal and that was to win the highest goal scorer and player of the tournament awards.

"I am on the way but we still have two days of football ahead of us and there are some excellent players here so it will not be easy,” said Shozi.

The Sanlam Kay Motsepe Schools Cup is currently underway at the King Zwelithini Stadium in KZN.
