In its search for procurement, as in the conduct of Maccabi Tel Aviv in recent years, this time too – it tries to look for the future generation: alongside the club’s clear ambitions, which strive for success in the present, one gets the impression that there is also thought ahead. Such a thought must have motivated the arrival of Rowan Human, the 19-year-old South African midfielder, who is due to sign with Maccabi for three years soon.
Bidvest Wits midfielder Rowan Human surely has a bright future. The creative midfielder is one of the most talented and exciting young players in the country.

Human, born in January 2001, grew up on the Bidwest Waits team from South Africa – last season, which was his only so far as a senior player, he recorded 11 appearances, including seven in the lineup and one goal. But despite the slightly less conspicuous numbers, the one who was very enthusiastic about him was his coach, Gavin Hunt who in May said of him: “Rowan is very exciting to me. He is one of the players who has impudence, but positive.”
“He reminds me of Stephen Pinar, at a time when he was breaking into Ajax. He has no respect for opponents. He’s one of the players who does not feel the pressure, but thrives on it.” Last month, August, Hunt even stepped up to do so and claimed: “This is the best player in South Africa for his age. There is no player better than him, I believe. He will be a superstar.”
Impressed by the performance videos, it seems that Human can be a pleasant surprise: despite his young age, he is relatively solid, very stable in ball possession and with very clean actions at the offensive level. He is certainly not a striker, the position that Maccabi is so lacking, but it is definitely a player who will be able to move the attack – even relatively from behind, and perhaps release a player like Dan Bitton a little further forward.
However, the fact that he is still not polished may push him back a bit (in an offensive squad that includes names like Bitton, Yonatan Cohen or Schechter) – but if his coach knows him well, Maccabi may have a bull injury, at a time when it is not easy to bring in players .
