Mzansi Diski has been blessed with an outrageously talented bunch of players making great strides in their development across the fraternity; one of the brightest stars in this galaxy is a highly touted, and highly sought after talent with that pure and untainted Mzansi flair that even a spell at La Masia could not teach a talented footballer. Tshepo is an uncut diamond that could develop into one of the crown jewels’ of Mzansi Diski once he has been polished and buffed a tad bit; the lad is blessed with the ability to take on players at pace while using his superb close control to devastating effect when he is in a 1v1 situation, the fact that he has mastered the dying art of dribbling with flair and purpose has made the lad even more of a highly sought after commodity across the entire football realm. His acute positional sense seems to make him even more of a threat when he drifts in off the flanks and looks to move into channels a bit more, he is blessed with a good passing vision and his impressive technical level allows him to pick out his teammates when they are in better positions before using his great positional play to make room for them to work by occupying defenders with his off the ball running. Having shown the dedication to getting better by working on his finishing ability, the lad has begun to add goals to his attacking repertoire and one can see him developing at a steady rate for as long as he keeps applying this level of dedication to bettering his game and fulfilling the insane levels of potential that he has been blessed in abundance.
