South Africans! An integral part of our footballing culture is the giving of nicknames to our players. Lars has been the most recent addition to the list.
The Soccer Laduma social team put up a picture of Lars hoping for fans to come up with a nickname for the newly called up Lars Veldwijk.
The best one so far has been from Khopotso Malebe and his suggestion was that we name Lars Veldwijk “State Capture”, because “he has come up during these tough times in South Africa and I believe he’s going to capture the hearts of South African football lovers.”
What do you think of the nickname?
