Although he remains unkown in South Africa, Kurt Abrahams is rapidly making a name for himself in Europe.
The 21-year-old attacker has already netted four goals in five starts for KVC Westerlo in the Belgian Second Division.
Born in South Africa in 1996, Abrahams has never played for a professional club or any development side in his country of birth, but his career is taking shape abroad.
Just this past wekeend, he scored his fourth goal in his fifth start for the Belgian second-tier side, but they were unfortunate to lose 2-1 at home to Beerschot-Wilrijk on Saturday.
Apart from their loss, they also dropped to second position on the log table after sitting at the summit before their encounter with 13 points.
Before leading the Citizens as head coach last season, McCarthy launched his coaching career at Truiden as assistant coach and he is also growing in stature after lifting the MTN8 Cup trophy; his first as head coach this past weekend.
Following last weekend's results, Abrahams and his teammates remain second and tied on 13 points from eight games with Union Saint-Gilloise, who have a Bafana international striker in Percy Tau on their books.
Meanwhile, Abrahams will hope to see his rich vein of form continue when they meet Tau's Saint-Gilloise away on Sunday, October 07, and should he continue with his excellent form throughout the season, chances are that Bafana coach Stuart Baxter will be forced to include him in his squads.
10': GOAL!!!! Dit keer gaat ie wel binnen voor Kurt Abrahams. Een geplaatst schot vanuit de tweede lijn, zoals hij dat wel vaker doet. Het blijft genieten van de Westelse nieuwkomer! #kvcwesterlo #WESBEE pic.twitter.com/HBYMz7Re2N— KVC Westerlo (@KVCWesterlo) September 29, 2018
