Ian Makaringe…Next PSL Star?
Posted: 29 April 2020
Orlando Pirates midfielder Fortune Makaringe is lighting up the ABSA Premiership with his swagger and skills, but looks like there will be two Makaringe’s in the top-division of South African football soon. Ian, who is the younger brother of Fortune, is an 18-year-old attacking midfielder who plies his trade in the SAB League, two divisions lower than the PSL.
His agent, Paul Mujuni spoke about the younger Makaringe, saying “He is a special player, an attacking midfielder. He currently plays in the SAB League with a team called Golden Boys Football Club and I must say his strength are eliminating opponents, he has an eye for goal and his shooting prowess is really fantastic for his age”, concluded Mujuni.
Makaringe Junior has had a great season in the SAB league; scoring goals, making goals and winning man-of-the-match awards almost at will this season.
There has been a few brothers in the PSL; the Henyekane brothers, the Sangweni brothers and the Khune brothers, will the Makaringe brothers add to the long list? That remains to be seen within the next couple of months or years.
