Weโ€™ve seen this so many times before: SuperSport Unitedโ€™s best players making the short moves across Tshwane to Mamelodi Sundowns. This time it is Thapelo Maseko.

Having made his name last season, including a few Bafana Bafana call-ups, the 19-year-old winger has joined Kabo Yellow in Chloorkop, beating Belgian club Westerlo with bigger fee offer.

Who is Thapelo Maseko?

Thapelo Maseko is a SuperSport DStv Diski Challenge graduate. He was born on 11 November 2002, meaning he turns 20 later this year. His preferred position is playing as an attacking midfielder. However, he can be deployed in the heart of midfield.

Last season he played a huge role for the Thabo September-led reserves team in the DDC. Matsatsantsa finished second behind champions Stellenbosch FC.

For his hard work, dedication and consistent performances in the field of play, he was promoted to the senior team.
