The 16-year-old from Hilton College has been with the Team of Choice for the past two years. He is currently playing for the Maritzburg Multichoice Diski League team, and is the youngest player to have participated in the MDC.
Captain of South Africa’s U17 team, the timing of Costi’s trip to England meant he was fortunate enough to be in the stands for the Manchester derby at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday, ahead of his two week trial.
Maritzburg United General manager Quinton Jettoo says the current English Premier League leaders have had their eye on Christodoulou for a while.
“There was always the request from Man City. I think they watched Costi in one of the SA U17 games, hence the interest in having him on trial and having an assessment, and taking it from there,” Jettoo explained.
“All of us at Maritzburg United are very proud of Costi and we wish him all the best over in England. We are confident he’ll grab this opportunity with both hands and do himself, the club and the country proud.”
