PSL Legends – Where Are They Now?

The Fan Park crew has a look at the legends of the South African game and tell you a bit about what they’ve done or what they’re doing with their lives after hanging up their boots. 

Benni McCarthy

The former Seven Stars and Ajax Cape Town man is currently getting his UEFA coaching badges, as McCarthy has revealed that he has hopes of one day coaching Pirates – the team where he ended his professional career.

Jabu ‘Pule’ Mahlangu

Jabu had a 14-year career full of trials and tribulations, after bursting on to the scene for the Chiefs in 1999. Although he had his off-field issues, Pule’s ability on the ball is what he will be remembered for, as he had Mzansi mesmerised with his skills. Today, the 34-year-old is an ambassador for the Multichoice Diski Challenge.

Mark Fish

The former Bafana international, who enjoyed his PSL career at Cosmos and Pirates, and also played in England at Bolton and Charlton, was one of the tribe captains in last season’s ‘Survivor’ TV show, where he was up against former Springbok rugby player, Corne Krige.

Helman Mkhalele

Mkhalele, who played most of his local football with Jomo Cosmos and Pirates, and scored over 40 goals in his eight years before retiring in 2008, now works as a facilitator at KBC Health and Safety Company. He also owns a personal furniture business. The former Bafana international also earned himself a teacher’s diploma at a Soweto college.

Brian ‘Spiderman’ Baloyi

The former Chiefs and Sundowns goalkeeper, who publicly spoke on Khune earlier this year advising the goalkeeper to stay put at Amakhosi, is a commercial and marketing manager at his own personal business – and him leaving Downs was largely due to the fact that he wanted to pursue his personal business interests.

Which of these legends did you enjoy most in their prime?
