Mido’s Tournament exceeds expectations


Kaizer Chiefs midfielder George Maluleka was left impressed with the talent on disposal during the 4th day of his annual soccer games taking place at Ga-Semenya in Limpopo. 

It is the 3rd edition of the Tournament which features U/13, U/15 and as well as U/17 boys is organised by the George Maluleka Foundation. 

The 30-year-old insists his vision is to give hope to the young ones to play at a professional level just like him. 

“For me it puts a smile on my face and I also reflect because I was once in their shoes and when I was very young I just never thought that I would be playing in the PSL or representing my country so I want them to have the same vision you know.

“It starts at this age whereby you say I want to play professional football when I get old,” Maluleka told FARPost.co.za

“I want to make them believe that it is possible and it starts now so they should take this seriously because there are scouts watching here and like I said we are going to take these boys to Johannesburg and see if we can find proper teams for them.”

The Tournament will end on Sunday, December 29 with the Under 17 section hosting the Main Final.
