Bidvest Wits head coach Gavin Hunt has singled out youngster Rowan Human for special praise after his side’s 2-0 victory over Stellenbosch at the weekend.
The 19-year-old forward was introduced towards the latter stages of the game for a brief cameo replacing Gift Motupa to make his official debut for the first team in the Premier Soccer League and Hunt is convinced the youngster is going places.
“We changed the shape obviously you know, so you gotta play according to what you got you can’t go try and play a way that doesn’t suit the players that you have,” said Hunt.
“You can’t say look you got to play whatever you know that’s why the youngster (Human) came on because I know he’s got… I believe he’s got a great future you can see he works hard and he did well you know.”
Human has been part of Wits’ first team squad over the past few weeks and by him finally getting opportunities to play will come as a big boast to U23 coach David Notoane and his technical team as it provides an even bigger pool of talented young players to select from when picking his squad ahead of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games in Japan in six months time.
Human is currently the leading goal scorer in the Multichoice Diski Challenge (MDC) with 10 goals to his name after 18 games and Notoane will know all about his goal scoring exploits as he previously coached the Mamelodi Sundowns reserves in the MDC.
