5 young stars who can make it big in SA football in 2017

Mbuyiselo Thethani‚ Free State Stars‚ winger‚ 20:

Thethani has been earning regular game-time with struggling Stars. He announced his arrival with a spectacular debut against SuperSport United in February 2015‚ scoring from thunderous drive in the 79th minute then teeing up a late equaliser in a spectacular comeback to 2-2 for Stars.

The Stars youth product has a tendency for showboating‚ but his skill pace and an eye for spectacular goals make him one to watch.

Promoted to the first team in January 2015‚ Thethani has played eight times for Stars this season‚ making five starts.

He has scored once‚ and again it was a beauty – controlling‚ turning and unleashing a dipping 25-metre half-volley in a 3-1 win against Platinum Stars in November.
