European club shows an interest in the promising South African player who impressed his management and South African football fans.
Football scouts are intrigued by the teenage sensation from SuperSport United, Shandre Campbell, because of his impressive performances. Two Duch Eredivisie giants are fighting for his signature, proving that even European scouts are keeping an eye on his fiery form. According to SoccerLaduma
The 18-year-old winger has drawn interest from Excelsior Rotterdam and Feyenoord, two teams with connections to SuperSport United in the past, according to Siya sources in Tshwane. However, the attraction isn’t just found in Europe; Shandre Campbell is also coveted by Al Hilal SC Benghazi, the champion of the Libyan Premier League.
“Both two Duch clubs who are interested in the youngster have a good history with SuperSport United. You remember Kermit Erasmus and Kamohelo Mokotjo both played for this teams and they were from the youth development of SuperSport United. I think that is the relationship which is influencing this interest as well. I can’t say it’s a done deal he is going to one of the team’s or not but the interest is there for the young boy,” the source ls told Siya Crew
SuperSport United won’t let a teen go easily this time around, according to a second siya source, as they are working to assemble a competitive squad.
“I think it will all go down to money issues if it happens that he goes because for now the club wants to keep all their young players and build a strong team that can compete again. And also there is one North African club interested in him as well. You know that club that played against SuperSport United in the CAF Confederations Cup from Libya, they are also interested in Shandre Campbell. They say they have been losing players without replacing them so this time around they want to make sure they keep them but if the money is good they would let him go as every team needs money to run the club. The interest will always be there but it all depends if they take action on them,” the source concluded
Despite the fact that Campbell was receiving a lot of attention, SuperSport United CEO Stan Matthews was confident he would keep his asset.
“There’s interest in Shandre Campbell from many countries, he is of of the best young players in world football. Even the Libyan team Al Hilal SC Benghazi that played against us wanted to buy or loan him immediately, but he’s not for sale to anyone, we’re looking forward to him shining for us for the next few years,” Matthews observed
