COSTI KEEPS HIS FEET ON THE GROUND
     
   
 

Maritzburg United’s talented young goalkeeper, Constandino Christodoulou is determined to keep his feet on the ground. The 16-year-old has enjoyed a whirlwind year, recently returning from a two-week trial at English champions, Manchester City.
     
 

 

He has not had much time to settle since arriving back home, having to finish of his end of year exams and then travel to Botswana for the Region 5 Games where he will represent the National Under-20 team.

 

Earlier this year, he captained the under-17 national side at the COSAFA Cup in Mauritius.

 

“It has been an eventful year and I am grateful for everything,” Christodoulou said.

 

The Hilton College pupil says he was blown away by the facilities at the Etihad.

 

“It was a bit overwhelming to start off, its an incredible facility, everyone at the club was welcoming,” Christodoulou explained.

 

He continued, “The standard of football at under-18 level was very good. The training sessions were tactical. Build-up play from the back is immense, you have to have confidence and composure.”

 

Costi as he is nicknamed, says his exposure to the Maritzburg United first team has helped him to develop and adjust to playing junior international football.

 

“Its important to have a good grounding. The senior players have done a lot for me. Coach Authur Bartman, Richard Ofori and Bongani Mpandle have been good with me. They play a huge role in making sure that I remain focused on the task at hand so I do not get ahead of myself with anything,” Christodoulou concluded.
