Wits Youngster In Denmark

Wits youngster Lebohang Phiri has jetted out of the country to spend 18 months with Brondby in Denmark. Phiri is realising his dream of wanting to play overseas, after being linked with a move to the Danish giants for some time.

The 18-year-old midfielder has progressed with distinction during his development at the Wits academy, with the club’s former coach, Roger de Sa, and his assistant Eric Tinkler having monitored his progress with a view of promoting him to the first team, while still at the club. 

 

Wits’ technical team invited the player to train with the club’s first team last year, in January, where Phiri got the feel of first class football alongside fellow academy players, including the likes of Julian de Freitas and Zaid Patel.

 

Patel has since been promoted to the PSL side. Phiri caught the attention of the Danish side while under the guidance of coach Ashley Makhanya, in the youth side that clinched the Brondby Cup last year.

 

A high-ranking official at The Students confirmed that Phiri will spend 18 months in Denmark as part of the agreement reached by the two clubs to fine-tune the player’s skills.
