Sameehg Doutie

Samheehg Doutie is not moulded in the form of the traditional South African footballing archetype, for his modesty matches his talent and skill. At only 17 he broke into the Ajax Cape Town first team and after an impressive debut 2007/2008 season has never looked back. His slick ball control and darting pace impressed the local football fraternity in a short space of time and after also representing his country at Under 23 and 20 level, he earned what many players only dream of: in 2011, a move to Orlando Pirates. Although his stint at Pirates was short-lived and he’s currently on loan to Supersport United, he’s determined to take his game to the next level and repay the good faith his coaches have shown in him over the years. His long-term goal is to play for Spanish La Liga football as, he says, it “suits his style of play”.
