πŸ‡ΏπŸ‡¦πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘¦β€πŸ‘¦ 12 teenagers who played in the PSL this season

Every football fan loves to see a kid beating a mature player down the line or tackling a feared striker out of the park. Thank God the Absa Premiership has afforded those moments this season.

While the 12 players who are 19 years and younger seems like a decent number to have seen in the league this season, it is still not quite enough if one dreams of seeing a world class Bafana Bafana team.

Of the 12 teenagers who have played football in South Africa’s elite division this season, the laaities represent only nine PSL clubs from 16 teams.

As most will know by now, SuperSport United, Bidvest Wits and Mamelodi Sundowns are notably the three PSL clubs with the most established academies in the country - and it is therefore no surprise to see United and Wits have each given debuts to two teenagers this season. As for Sundowns, Kabo Yellow promoted the sensational 19-year-old left winger Promise Mkhuma, though he is yet to make an appearance.
