Kaizer Chiefs youngster Sabelo Radebe is officially a graduate and has posted his graduation picture on his official Instagram account on Thursday.
Radebe recently graduated to the Chiefs first team last season, and he has since couple that with an educational graduation.
Finished the last season and started this one well
After an impressive close to last season, and a tremendous pre and early 2021/2022 season, many were expecting Radebe to be a regular fixture at least in Chiefs match day squads. However, Bibo, as he is affectionally known by those close to him, has not found himself as close as he would’ve liked to be, in Stuart Baxter’s squad of late.
Known for his versatility, the 21-year-old Radebe is comfortable in various positions on the football park. For the Chiefs Multichoice Diski Challenge side, he has often been deploy as either a number eight or ten. Whereas, for the Amakhosi he has often found home in the wider areas on both the left and right flanks.
Has found the first team competition tougher at Chiefs this season
Competition has proven to be tighter for Radebe at Chiefs this unfortunately, with the club strengthening in the wide areas by signing the likes of Keagan Dolly and Kgoagelo Sekgota who have come into a group already boasting the likes of Khama Billiat, Samir Nurkovic and Bernard Parker.
Although it still remains unclear what Radebe’s qualification is, as he didn’t post that information, his graduation is still an incredible achievement worth celebrating. In a year where he has been stuck between two Chiefs squads , dealt with Covid-19 amongst other things, he has still managed to bag an educational qualification, successfully balancing his football with his studies.
Radebe posted his graduation on his Instagram account
The ever smiling Radebe posted a series of pictures on his Instagram, the first featuring a picture with a car branded with his initials of SR and the number 16. The second was that of him at what looks to be a Boston City Campus graduation and a third a video, the caption read : “Angeke Bayi’Vale Yonke Imi’Nyango” which translates to “They can’t close all the doors”.
At The South African News we extend our congratulations to Radebe and we wish him more success both on and off the field.
