Ajax Cape Town winger Thabo Mosadi is one of the quickest players in the Absa Premiership and he’s also known for his creativity down the flanks.
Mosadi was born in Katlehong, a township located in the east of Johannesburg. He began playing football for amateur teams from an early age in his township.
His promising football skills attracted interest from Jomo Cosmos and he joined Ezenkosi’s development where he was nurtured by the academy coaches.
Mosadi went on to join Alexandra United, who were campaigning in the Vodacom Gauteng Second Division, and he was able to get his first taste of competitive football in the division.
University of Pretoria came calling for the speedster’s signature in 2012; AmaTuks were offering him an opportunity to play in the Absa Premiership.
This was after the Tshwane side had clinched automatic promotion to the top flight league after winning the 2011-12 National First Division (NFD) title.
Although, Mosadi struggled with injuries in his debut season in the elite league, he was able to make 18 appearances for Tuks – netting four goals in the process.
Tuks had remarkably finished in the top eight during the 2012-13 campaign. This was also the club’s first ever season in elite league.
The following campaign, Mosadi featured in all of Tuks’ 30 league matches – scoring three times in the process – establishing himself as one of the club’s key players.
AmaTuks battled relegation during the 2014-15 campaign, but Mosadi was able to help the team escape the dreaded axe – making 29 league appearances.
However, Mosadi struggled with injuries during his last season with Tuks playing 17 league games and he netted once as the team suffered relegation to the NFD.
His exploits during his four seasons with AmaTuks had caught the attention of Ajax and he joined the club prior to the 2016-17 campaign on a long-term deal.
The 26-year-old has hit the ground running at the Urban Warriors as he’s one of coach Stanley Menzo’s key players in attack during the current campaign.
