Many people complain that footballers earn way too much money, and on this point they may be right. However, with that wealth they have the capacity for immense good. Today we bring you the story of Cole Alexander.
Cole Alexander Makes A Difference
Cole Alexander was one of the top midfielders in the league last season, together with Reneilwe Letsholonyane topped the charts in almost every statistical measure. The pair will now be playing together at SuperSport United next season, however, it is what Alexander is doing off the pitch that inspires us today.
Cole has taken an active stance to give back to youth development and amateur football in Cape Town. He, along with the AJ Generation Foundation have been working to improve infrastructure and facilities in amateur football. They have been engaging in a number of projects in the Cape Flats. In their first project they managed to raise donations of up to R20 000.
Congratulations to Cole Alexander and his team for making a positive impact on the lives of our supporters. Hopefully their work can lead to more children becoming professional footballers and making a decent living.
