Former Kaizer Chiefs defender Dominic Isaacs reckons AmaKhosi have uncovered a big future star in midfield youngster Sabelo Radebe.
It was former AmaKhosi coach Gavin Hunt who saw the 21-year-old’s potential and promoted him from the DStv Diski Challenge to the Chiefs senior team, where he has now clearly grabbed the opportunity given to him.
In Sunday’s match against Orlando Pirates in the Carling Black Label Cup, Radebe was one of the standout players on the pitch impressing with his overall performance despite missing a penalty in the shootout.
In an interview with KickOff.com, former Chiefs defender Isaacs raved about the talent shown by Radebe against Bucs.
“I was very impressed with that young boy Radebe,” Isaacs told KickOff.
“I’ve watched a few games of him in the MDC, and if he has a solid head, and I hope that they’ve learned from the past mistakes of former players that had the potential to become great and fell off along the way.
“Praise must go to Arthur [Zwane] as well because of the boys that are coming through, such as Blom, Ngcobo and Mashiane. If you look ahead over the next seven or eight years, the club is in very good hands with these players coming through.
“That boy [Radebe] he’s got so much energy, confidence, and he’s young. He’s playing freely, and he always wants the ball. The maturity he is showing beyond his age is very good, very encouraging.
“Chiefs have a star in him.
“Any win is a win against your rivals. You will take any win against Orlando Pirates, be it pre-season, friendlies, behind closed doors. It’s always nice to get one over your cross-town rivals,” Isaacs concluded.
