Botes applauds Namibian footballers

10 September 2020 | Sports

NAMPA



Former Brave Warriors striker Henrico Botes says the new generation of Namibian footballers playing in South Africa are very talented.

The Rehoboth-born player, who played for Moroko Swallows, Platinum Stars and Bidvest Wits in South Africa before hanging up his boots, says the sky is the limit for these talented young footballers.



Proud of Peter

“I am so proud of them, Peter (Shalulile) and Deon (Hotto) were absolutely fantastic at their respective clubs. Virgil (Vries) showed again that he is a top goalkeeper by dragging Swallows back to the PSL with outstanding performances for his team. Ananias Gebhardt is a regular at Baroka and Chris (Katjiukua) played a lot of games for Baroka while Maximilian Mbaeva was also regular at Arrows.” Unfortunately, Edward Maova was relegated with Royal Eagles but Botes predicts that Lloyd Kazapua will be one of the top goalkeepers in the Premier Soccer League (PSL).



First Namibian top scorer

Botes says Shalulile is the first Namibian to be named the top goal scorer in the South African PSL and he has no doubt that the Namibian goal poacher can play regularly at any team in the PSL.

“Coach Pitso Mosimane likes versatile players and Peter (Shalulile) can play anywhere in attack, because of his speed, guile and work rate. It is very difficult to be successful as a striker because you need your teammates to assist you on the field in order to score regularly, but Peter is a very humble guy and I see a bright future for him.”

He says he would like to see Shalulile moving overseas and that a perfect fit for the player would be the French first division.

Shalulile, who plays for Highlands Park, was joint top goal scorer with Gabadinho Mhango of Orlando Pirates with 16 goals each from 30 PSL matches played during the 2019/2020 PSL season.
