Lance Davids was discovered by former Bafana Bafana coach Stuart Baxter in 2004 at the age of just 18, Lance Davids’ increased maturity in recent years has been rewarded by a return to national-team contention. The well-travelled midfield man left South Africa at an early age to join German side 1860 Munich, where he made his Bundesliga debut in 2003. He later made the switch from Germany to Sweden when signing for Djurgardens.
He, however, faces very tough competition in midfield and will have to prove his worth before he can topple the formidable midfield combination of McBeth Sibaya and Kagiso Dikgacoi. His return to the South African football in early 2009 was motivated by a desire to safeguard his spot in the Bafana Bafana squad and to prove his worth ahead of the following year’s FIFA World Cup. A short spell at Supersport United he moved to Cape Town-based outfit, Ajax Cape Town, but he enjoyed a mixed spell of form this season.
Davids has been back in South Africa for the past 18 months first doing duty for SuperSport United before returning to his home town.
“I signed a three year deal with Lierse on Saturday. This is all happening because I have had a good season with Ajax. They came here to close the deal. What has impressed me about the club is that the new Egyptian owners have shown tremendous ambition,” says Davids who has previously played in Germany and Sweden.
The Belgium club was promoted into the top league at the end of last season and has recently been bought by Egyptian businessman Maged Samy who also owns Wadi Degla Sporting Club back in his homeland.
If you followed Lance Davids on twitter you would have known that already 🙂 So why on earth would a Web AddiCT write a post about Lance Davids?
