CUT Star On Sundowns' Radar

Central University of Technology's Varsity Football exploits has caught the eye of a number of PSL clubs, including the Brazilians who have their eye on a specific player.

Although CUT coach Rakometsi Mosai did not reveal the player's identity, it is understood that the player is dynamic wing Orapeleng Manopole. Manopole has been a standout player in the competition and one of the top goal scorers thus far.

He has been key to CUT's success and has been at the heart of their attacking forays. Sundowns are not the only club interested in the Bloemfontein students though as Bloemfontein Celtic have also shown keen interest in establishing a relationship with the institution.

"After our opening game against Fort Hare, our players started getting phone calls from professional clubs who are interested in signing them and when that happened, I knew more PSL clubs would be watching us all over the country.

"There is obviously no deals that have been signed by any of our players but I know that Bloem Celtic are one of the clubs who have shown interest in some of our players. When we travelled to Pretoria to play TUT, there were some representatives from Sundowns at the game.

"When the game was done, they expressed interest in one of our players [believed to be Manopole] and stated that they would be in contact with us when the competition is over. It is nice to see that there are PSL clubs showing interest in our players.

"Currently, we do not have a link with Bloem Celtic but after we gained some exposure in the Varsity Football competition, they have expressed interest in forming a link," Mosai said.

CUT's attacking brand of football has seen them manage to attract massive crowds to their home fixtures. Part of the crowd was 'Mr Shower-cap' himself, Botha Msila - who led the football fanatics in song and dance.

"We expected a big crowd to attend our games because they knew about the competition from previous years and we had pulled off some victories that got us noticed before our first home game. However, we did not think that some of the Bloem Celtic supporters would be there in full voice to support us," he added.

CUT are just two victories away from lifting the Varsity Football trophy in their debut season, something that is highly likely should they continue their attacking brand of football.
