Many players learn how to play football, Azola Tshobeni was born to play. With a football at his feet as early as he could walk, Tshobeni fought for every ball from the tender age of 8yrs old with Luso Africa FC and has not stopped since. The young midfielder graduated from the Augusto Palacios Academy in 2017 and joined the Orlando Pirates Development structure where he played a key role in bringing the Future Champion Cup back to the Club after 10 years.
Azola had his first professional debut with Orlando Pirates in 2020/21 and is determined to engrave his name in the history books of the Club like his favourite player and former Buccaneer, Andile Jali.
With a football and the whole world at his feet, “Master V” does not neglect the important role education plays in one’s life. The starlet is committed to his studies off the field and aspires to achieve a master’s degree in his near future.
