Daniel Cardoso’s rise to the big league is not one that is common for most footballers in the current Amakhosi unit. The defender has played for various professional junior teams and even at varsity level before eventually making his Premier Soccer League debut for Free State Stars in 2012 at the age of 24. Since then the former Robertsham junior has had a meteoric rise in the professional ranks that eventually led to a dream move to Kaizer Chiefs in the 2015/16 season and an international appearance for Bafana Bafana.
In his short stay with Amakhosi the hard-tackling defender has made a good impression and will be looking to add onto that with a much-improved performance during his tenure with the Club.
