Our Favourite Fantastic Football Fathers on TikTok

Footballers, to a large extent, live their lives in the public eye. Their on-field exploits as talented sports stars are well documented, however, very little is known about these superstars’ roles as doting fathers.

In light of Father’s Day fast approaching on 19 June, and the rapid growth in-app #hashtag #DadTok, we’re taking a look at some of the coolest baller daddies on TikTok worldwide.


A large portion of their time is spent on training fields, in hotels, or on the road, especially during a jam-packed season. But on their rare days off, these footballers can be found spending time with their children, swapping the title of football hero, to super dads.


We take a look at some of the coolest footballer dads around:


Itumeleng Khune


Mzansi’s finest is one of the most loved players in South Africa. The 34-year-old is well known for his heroics, both for Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana. Khune recently became a dad for the second time and although he shields his daughters from the public eye, his social media pages often depict the adorable relationship Khune has with his kids and the amazing moments they share together.

George Maluleka


Mido’s many tattoos include the name of his kids. A father to a son and a daughter, the Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder has a humorous take on fatherhood and often shares moments with his kids that often leave his followers in stitches.

Thabo Mnyamane


Marumo Gallants attacker, Thabo Mnyamane, is another who for large parts has kept his adorable son away from the guise of the public eye, enjoying many private moments with the little one. Only recently has the man nicknamed ‘Scara’ given fans a glimpse into his time with his son as he looks to balance the demands of being a top striker for Gallants and an even better daddy for his boy.

Linda Mntambo


The man affectionately known as Figo wears his heart on his sleeve, whether it is on the field for Orlando Pirates or back at home with his wife and kids. The 33-year-old who has dance moves for days often shares touching moments dancing with his kids, going out to the mall or even watching soccer games together.
