Place Of Birth
Patrick Maswanganyi was born and raised in Tembisa, Gauteng, South Africa. He has also stated that he comes from a poor background. However, his passion for playing football kept him going. He told Orlando Pirates FC in an interview,
“Honestly, I do not think I would be where I am today because when I was growing up, I encountered a lot of difficulties as a result of coming from a poor background. There are periods when I did not have soccer boots, this discouraged me from going to practice and going to games because I did not want to be a burden to other people.”
“When I was young I played for a team called Mighty Tigers. Our coach also did not have much, to make things worse he was handicapped and in a wheelchair. Despite this, he pushed us to continue, and the little that he had, he contributed it back to the team.”
“Things started to change when I went to Stars of Africa Football Academy, and it is there that I saw that perhaps it could be possible for me to play professionally. I was super motivated because I saw this as an opportunity for me to change the situation at home.”
