SA star living a superstar life in Asia

Star Style

Having recently signed a contract extension with his club, Dutch-born Bafana Bafana striker Lars Veldwijk seems to be enjoying life in the city of Suwon in South Korea! 

Veldwijk was handed a one-year contract extension by his K League 1 side Suwon FC, and that is even more reason for him to stay at a place he seems to be having a blast at.

The well-traveled striker has represented sides in various countries including Netherlands, England, Belgium, Norway, and now in Korea.  

The former Nottingham Forest forward appears to be comfortably settled in the Asian continent, and on the field, goals are starting to come by thick and fast as he has scored 15 goals in 27 appearances this season and has contributed a further five assists. 

He is currently sitting at the top of the scoring charts, and the race for the golden boot seems to be on as the next top scorer is just one goal behind him with 14 strikes.  

With just seven Bafana Bafana caps to his name, Veldjwijk could possibly add to those appearances should his form continue or, whether the new national team coach Hugo Broos rates him.  

In terms of his lifestyle, the 30-year-old finisher is a dedicated father who is often seen spending valuable time with his family and his Samoyed dog. He also appears to be a big fan of dining and his favourite beverage seems to be a smoothie – a scroll through his Instagram and you will see why. 

Did you know?  

Last year, Veldwijk revealed that he was close to signing for a PSL club, however, he did not mention which team. 

Your thoughts, please? 

Do you see Lars Veldwijk ever coming to play in the DStv Premiership?
