South Africans Who Have Played In France

Keagan Dolly has all but completed his move to Ligue 1 side Montpellier, seeing him become the seventh South African in recent history to play in France. Can you name the others on the list of Mzansi stars to have done so?

The 24-year-old, who is said to have cost La Paillade an impressive R25 million, has penned a four-year deal with the team who previously had Eric Cantona, Roger Milla and Carlos Valderrama on their books.

Dolly will be the only South African playing in the French top flight in the second half of this season after Kermit Erasmus Ligue 2 side RC Lens on loan, while Lebogang Mothiba is yet to break into Lille's first team.

Bafana Bafana legend Pierre Issa spent four years playing for Marseille, while Thabang Molefe joined Le Mans three years later.
