Renaldo Jonkers Using his Opportunities
Renaldo Jonkers made his professional debut for Santos this weekend and managed to salvage a point for his team by scoring a late equaliser to draw the game 1-1.
Renaldo was spotted at this years u19 Metropolitan Bayhill Cup and was invited by head coach Zeca Marcs to train with the team and he blew their technical staff away.
Renaldo Jonkers ability has been well nurtured by two of the Western Capes best youth Development Academies, Ajax Cape Town and Old Mutual Academy. A real live wire with superb technique and ball retention in wide areas makes him a handful for defenders on any given day.
Blessed with skill and athleticism, his ability on a football field has many in admiration given his tender age of 18. Renaldo says he has been put to his paces in his new environment and is grateful for how the team has welcomed him. “I’m learning a lot being in this professional environment and i can feel my game improving,”
We look forward to watching this young talent grow into his full potential.
