Van Wyk: Super Captain By Day, Serial Bookworm By Night

When she is not leading the South African women’s national team to major tournaments like the Women’s FIFA World Cup, Janine Van Wyk can be found digging her nose into one of her wide array of books. 

The 32-year-old former Houston Dash defender recently shared her impressive catalogue of books with her followers on her Instagram page. 

Majority of Van Wyk’s books are football autobiographies, though there are a few other genres too.

The likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Carlo Ancellotti, Cristiano Ronaldo, Jose Mourinho and Alex Ferguson all find themselves as a part of her collection. 

The Fortuna Hjorring player provided clarity on her collection. 

“I'm not really fond of reading books.  I do however read books that I feel can educate me, inspire me and strengthen my mind. #mybookcollection,” she shared. 

What do you think of Van Wyk’s impressive book collection?
