A rare breed, one of his kind and arguably one of the greatest midfielders South Africa has produced. Remembering the talent that was Gift Leremi.
Mzansi was robbed of ‘Voom-Voom’s’ talent at the tender age of 22. In that time, he had already established himself as one of the most promising talents.
The Soweto-born star had the rare ability to shoot with both feet, something that made him an invaluable asset to both Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns.
Off-field issues marred his career, but his talent was undeniable.
His life was cut short when he was involved in a tragic car accident in Alberton in 2007.
Do you think Leremi would have been the best midfielder in the country?
