SA footballlers abroad: 2021 best performers


Since the dawn of the new year, a few of Mzansi’s stars have performed very well with their respective clubs abroad.

FARPost looks at the best performers for the first quarter of the year.


Singh has been one of the best players this year for his club Pacos Ferreira in the Portuguese Primeira Liga.

The Stars of Africa graduate has netted three goals and assisted another three since the start of the year. With an overall goal contribution of 10 goals(five goals and five assists), the 23-year-old’s star is on the rise in Portugal.

It is important to note that Singh has played in all league games this season for Ferreira.


Probably the most consistent South African central defensive midfielder abroad, Sithole has been receiving rave reviews for his performances with SAD Belenenses in the top flight.

Yaya has played 16 top flight games so far this season with his latest outing coming in Belenenses’ 0-0 draw against Rio Ave last weekend.


Links has established himself as a regular member of the starting eleven at Danish Superliga side AGF Aarhus.

The former Cape Town City winger has netted two goals and assisted another two in all competitions since January with his latest goal coming two weeks ago in a 1-1 draw against Randers FC.


Kgatlana is the best player for Spanish Primera Division side SD Eibar and she has netted five league goals this year alone.

This has taken the striker’s overall goal contribution to 15 goals this season having netted 10 goals and assisted another five. Eibar has been on a run of bad form, but Kgatlana has been lethal in front of goal for the Spanish outfit.

She has netted against the likes of Sevilla, Real Madrid, Madrid CFF and Atletico Madrid which has led to many reports in Spain to suggest that the big clubs will come for her signature at the end of the season.


After scoring his ninth league goal of the season for Braga B last weekend, Kodisang got a step closer to reaching double digits in Portugal.

The 21-year-old has netted four league goals this year as his star keeps shining in the Campeonato de Portugal.
