In the Mzansi Diski fraternity, you would be hard pressed to find a seasoned 20 year old defender that has never plied his trade locally and has been blessed with the potential to become an elite level footballer in years to come; yet Ntuthuko Radebe is all that and more, the eMadandeni born versatile defender has that extra touch of quality that often proves to be the differentiator between the decent footballers and the really good ones. The gifted leftie has already garnered himself a fair bit of experience as a footballer, developing alongside some truly talented prospects at the ASPIRE Academy in Doha, India while fending off a few to earn a starting berth at the academy owned Belgian Second Division club; the attacking left fullback has shown that he is constantly looking to add some more strings to his bow as he continues his development at a sturdy pace. Blessed with great tackling abilities and the pace to use his great positional sense to help his side transition from defence to attack very swiftly while supplementing the attack with his good ball retention ability and dynamic crossing play, Radebe seems built to become an elite level footballer in the modern age; while he will have to fend off a few talented Mzansi footballers to make that Bafana no: 3 jersey his own, we at GSv feel as if the lad has the potential to become a genuine star for Mzansi, regardless of which defensive position he takes up for Bafana.
