SA Youngster Signs In Spain

South African Youngster Signs In Spain

By Soccer Laduma - Feb 15, 2017 09:34 AM

South African-born Thabang Maponya has signed a professional contract with one of Spain’s third tier clubs.

The 21-year-old midfielder is a product of the FootballCV Academy, which is based in Stamford, England, and caters for football development while also providing the players with educational qualifications.

The player has since secured a chance at professional European football without coming through the ranks of South Africa’s top flight, or any of the lower leagues.

Caudal Deportivo, a club in Spain’s third tier league, announced the signing of Maponya on Tuesday.

Deportivo is currently in 15th place on the league table after 25 matches played.

Maponya now joins a list of many South African youngsters currently plying their trade abroad, including Haashim Domingo, Luther Singh and Liam Jordan (all in Portugal).

Our soccer players need to target certain leagues not be vast all around the world, its not helping them, I think Portugal, spain, france are perfect for us... if a player is in Dutch or Belgium they need to be playing for the top 3 sides at least.
