“We have already started with the project and our first step was identifying under-18 players. We are now in the process of building a strong team and moving to a better venue for training.

“But my bigger picture is on development, I came through Kaizer Chiefs’ ranks. That’s why we will also be planning to launch a football academy. That’s my biggest goal, to give these youngsters a platform to showcase their talent and realise their dreams of being spotted by PSL teams.”
