“Andile [Mpisane] has a different vision, he is a young gentleman, and his vision is so different than anyone else.”
These are the words uttered by businesswoman Shauwn Mkhize who bought GladAfrica Championship outfit Real Kings and renamed it to Royal AM FC in order to fulfil her son’s dream of owning a football club.
At just 19, Andile is set to become the youngest club owner in the Premier Soccer League (PSL) while he will also continue to be a player in the first division. A jack of all trades as he is also a music artist and reality tv star.
“I am very excited, he wants to give young players who are unknown an opportunity to play and I don’t know what are the plans now but I am sure as the time goes on they might be looking for other people,” said Mam Mkhize.
“But we have decided to stay away from everything hence he has decided to have a CEO [former Highlands Park director Sinki Mnisi] because somewhere along the line we felt we were too close to the players and we have some sentimental value for some of them and maybe that is why we couldn’t achieve the goals that we wanted to achieve.
“We surfaced back into the football fraternity because that’s what my son likes,” concluded Mkhize.
