Shield Sibonis’ iDiski 2017 runner up, Alanzo Kuhn says for a player to enter this competition they need to be committed, have the right mindset, have a vision and believe in themselves.
“Players need to go full hearted on this competition and be willing to learn from the coaches and other players,” Kuhn said.

The Mitchels Plain born player says players coming to this competition need to be team players and show leadership skills. He said his principles helped him get far in the competition.
” I have a very strong character, my parents taught me how to be responsible and disciplined on and off the field,” Kuhn added.

He says he hopes to inspire young football players to dream big and work hard in achieving their goals.
“I hope everyone who dreams of being a successful football player will be given a chance to live their dream. I’m currently training with Polokwane City and still in partnership with Shield. I hope to grow not only as a player but also as a person,” concluded Kuhn.
