Thanks to a fabulous Grade 1 teacher, at a mainstream school, at the age of 6, it was picked up that he had a learning disability. He is commonly known by his soccer friends as “Speedy”, and yes, he is fast. He is confident that he will make Bafana Bafana when he is older and play for South Africa.
