Featured Player: Alessandro Venditti

Keep an eye on the very talented 17 year old Venditti who is turning heads in the ABC Motsepe league.

Alexandra Black Aces youngster Alessandro Venditti is miles away from most of his peers. Most teenagers his age are still learning the basics of modern football and are battling to break into their local teams all over South Africa. At the age of 17, the talented attacking midfielder is on his way to the top and no one can stand in his way.

Venditti plays for the Gold City Giants in the Gauteng ABC Motsepe League and is one of the most important players in the Alexandra based team set-up. On the field of play, he brings creativity, hard work and flair. The former Supersport United junior’s talisman makes the team play and also scores vital goals, making him one of few complete midfielders in the country at the moment.

Venditti has already featured in the Multi-Choice Diski Challenge, holding his own against seasoned professionals. His heroics in the youth leagues resulted in him being invited to train with the Black Aces first team by Coach Mushin Ertugral and again he held his own. If you watch him play, you would swear that he has years of experience under his name. Venditti is matured and plays his heart out in every match or training session.

Off the field, the Alex Aces kingpin is also the perfect role-model. Venditti did not wait until he reached the peak of his career to give back to the community. Instead he used the little that he has to inspire the next generation. Football is demanding and no-one knows that better than the free-scoring midfielder. He decided to do something to make the demands of football easier not only for him but also other young students who have to balance school and football.

Earlier this year, he hosted a motivational talk and soccer skills workshop at Sivuleleni Primary School and Thathani Primary School. Venditti doesn’t have a big ego and if is not stealing the headlines, he will support the next player in line, much like he has done since picking up an injury against Dondol Stars.

He might miss the upcoming match against JDR Stars due to that injury but one thing that is certain, is that he will be the first person to cheer his club mates on come match day.

Alexandra Black Aces travel to Pretoria to take on the 4th placed team on Friday, 18 November at the Pilditch Stadium.
