Supersport United star Sipho Mbule: Stylish on & off the pitch!


Supersport United star Sipho Mbule was one of the most coveted stars from last season thanks to his stylish brand of football, but his style of play is not the only thing that is elegant about the Matsatsantsa maestro! 

There is a saying in relation to fashion that goes; “simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication” - and one could agree that the quote seems very much applicable to the way Mbule represents himself style-wise.

Mbule - What sets him apart?

There isn’t a single term that can be used to describe the 23-year-old midfielder’s personal style, as it cannot be simply classified into a fashion category like streetwear, formal or semi-formal. 

At face value, Mbule strikes a dynamic balance between sportswear, streetwear and a bit of vintage.

Did you know? 

Mbule was born in Bethlehem in the Free State province. He and his Supersport teammate Teboho Mokoena both come from the Harmony Academy in Virginia. 

The creative midfielder was once in the books of the Orlando Pirates' reserve team before joining the Pretoria Supersport United Reserves in 2016 and later moved up into the senior side in the following year.

Mbule has also represented his country across various levels, including the SA U20 and U23. More recently, he has received a few call-ups to Bafana Bafana, although he is yet to get his first start in Hugo Broos' side.

Your thoughts, please?

With his midfield partner Mokoena having already established himself in the national team, do you think Mbule can break into the national side and form another pairing at the international level?
