Who is that new boy Fagrie Lakay?

Citizens new boy Fagrie Lakay had his debut for the team this Saturday. But who is that boy? For someone who doesn’t know, this 22-year-old attacker is back in his home. Before Cape Town City FC he played for Bidvest Wits. He is very confident he will flourish again under Benni McCarthy, happily add value to the team.

Some of you can remember him as a youngster with his blistering pace at Santos. He becomes South African’s youngest international player. But he never fulfilled his potential and expectations. Now he is a part of Cape Town City FC, maybe they will know how to use all his talent.

Fagrie Lakay debut for the team

This young boy had the opportunity to become one of the best players. With amazing talent. Unfortunately, he didn’t have that luck. Now when he becomes a part of Citizens, maybe they will know how to wake up all this talent. Lakay was the youngest international player in history. Enjoyed in a brief stint with a Netherlands club PEC Zwolle. Now he is in good shape. Coming home will be a great benefit to his career.

In the interview, he said that is an honor to play in the club which has one of the most exciting coaches. They have one amazing style of playing. He is sure that he can be a great help to the team. Lakay is a player who can play on the wing or in his strongest number nine position. Everything depends on how McCarthy will deploy this young boy. But it will not be an easy job to come to the first team, they have big competition for those positions.


For Lakay this can be a great thing. He will need to work harder to become a better footballer. Until now everyone loves him. Before he came to the club, he knows some of the players. This makes his first days easier.

Now when he got his debut for the team, let’s hope that we will enjoy many great games with him. If you want to know what will happen with this young boy in the future, visit Soccer10. You could find every important sports news about this player, or some football team.
