Best Foreign Footballers in PSL History. Since the inception of the PSL, men from beyond South African borders, armed with massive talent, great physique, eye for goal, explosive speed and exceptional skills, graced pitches where they terrorized defenders and subjected those backing them to ecstasy.
The PSL has seen players from all over the world – South America, North America, Europe, Asia and other parts of Africa strut their stuff on the pitch displaying consummate skills and scoring memorable goals in the process.
They stood out with great goals and assists. Some moved to better and bigger leagues after the PSL provided them with a platform to perform exploits.
We found it hard to come up with a list of Top 10 Foreign Attackers to have played in the PSL era (since the 1996/97 season). There are a number of notable omissions – Benjani Mwaruwari, Robert Ngambi, Jean-Marc Ithier, Mame Niang and Gilbert Mushangazhike among others. However, the following have made an indelible mark in the PSL
The Top 10 Best Foreign Footballers in PSL History (All Time Best )
10. Anthony Laffor (Liberia)
Since the great George Weah, Laffor is arguably the best player to emerge out of Liberia. No one tore defences with relative ease at Jomo Cosmos than Laffor. His sterling performance for Cosmos in the Coca Cola Cup in 2005, where they beat SuperSport United was classic.
He later joined Matsatsantsa A Pitori where he continued to flourish. At Sundowns, Laffor developed a tendency if scoring in dying minutes to save the Brazilians.
9. Chris Katongo (Zambia)
One of the great finds by Jomo Sono, Katongo was dependable when it comes to scoring. The Chipolopolo hitman set a record in 2006/07 season, where he left Cosmos for Denmark half way through the season with 15 goals.
He came back to collect the Lesley Manyathela Golden Boot award at the end of the season.
