Maboke Matlakala interview
He proved to be a good signing for Baroka FC in January, helping the Limpopo club survive relegation by a whisker, which has led to Platinum Stars signing him. Matlakala shares the reasons for his decision and reveals his aims for the upcoming season.

AC Milan feature
It’s no secret that AC Milan are no longer the dominant force they once were in Europe. Mid-table finishes and trophyless seasons have become their trademark. This year, though, offers a ray of hope and it seems that the Diavoli (Devils) may seem to be emerging from their fiery hell. Rossella Marrai-Ricco looks at why football could see the return of the Italian giants.
