After completing his move to Israeli giants Maccabi Tel Aviv earlier this month from the now-defunct Bidvest Wits, Rowan Human has given some clarity on where he will be playing his football in the 2020/21 season.
The 19-year-old was one of the players released by Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM) after they bought the status of Wits a few months ago.
Human signed a three-year-deal with Maccabi, but the club has opted to loan out the 19-year-old to second-tier side Beitar Tel Aviv where he will be harnessing his skills before getting back to Maccabi next season to try and fight for his place in the team.
In a chat with FARPost Human explained that he will be with Beitar for the new season.“Yes this season I will be out on loan at Beitar Tel Aviv who play in the second division as I try to adapt to the new environment,” he said.
“In the long run the goal is to go back and play with Maccabi’s first team, but for now the focus will solely be to do well here,” added Human.
Speaking after a game Wits had played with Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns in the bio-bubble his former coach Gavin Hunt had also heaped praise on the youngster saying he is one of the best players of his generation and has a bright future ahead of him.
“Human is the best player in South Africa at his age. There’s no better player than him‚ I believe – I haven’t seen a better player at his age and I think he’ll be a superstar,” said Hunt.
At 19, Human has everything in his own hands in Europe and the advantage is that he has moved at the right age to be able to adapt and eventually hit the ground running in Israel which in recent years has proven to be amongst the leagues that export players to top-flight leagues such as La Liga and Portugal.
