SuperSport United sign Grant Kekana from

Posted: 12 January 2011 Time: 11:21

SuperSport United have snapped up teenage defender Grant Kekana from First Division side University of Pretoria on a three and a half year contract following the same route that they took when they acquired another defender, Bongani Khumalo, from Tuks in June 2007. 

The 18-year-old Kekana has a number of similarities to Khumalo, who has since left for Tottenham Hotspur in England, in that he is also tall and plays in central defence.   SuperSports chief operations officer Jose Ferreira confirms that they have signed Kekana and will be registering him with the PSL this week.   "We have acquired Kekana on a permanent move from TUKS and he has signed a three and a half year contract."   Ferreira adds that they are still awaiting Zambian defender Davies Nkausu's permanent residence permit that will enable him to be registered as a local.   Meanwhile, Tuks have released five other players.   AmaTuks coach Steve Barker said apart from Kekana they have mutually agreed to terminate the contracts of Thabang Monare and Mduduzi Makwakwa and loaned Wesley Strydom, Itumeleng Lesu and Musa Sesele to a SAB League development club.

@Isaac, it does not mean that your boy is 19 then Kekana is not 18. I know the boy, his parents and where he stays and he is definately 18. Please feed your boy with the right food (lots of vitamins) and tell him to stop drinking booze, irresponsible girlfriends and smoking nyaope then you will see his body will develop.

The fact that chiefs doesnt want to help the country in development doesnt have anything whatsover with age cheating. Look, u cant compare the way people look and try to derive their age. sometimesit works, sometimes it doesnt. The way a person look depend on many thing like their genetic makeup, their diet, the way they grew up, were they active in sports ...things like that. a combination of that can make a person "look 5 years older or younger than another". for example, i went to unversity and even on my fourth and final year, i was stoped at the library door by seurity coz they thought i was some of the high school students whop used th facility illegaly. n the high school boys were going in there without a problem! so teams should take up th responsibility of building th country's footbal and stop closing their academies blaming age cheating. there r proper protocols to follow to acertain a player's age.
