About davidk

Your Quote/Motto

“Football is a simple game; 22 men chase a ball for 90 minutes and at the end, the Germans always win."


I’m Soccer-Laduma’s international football specialist.

Brief Career Background

I played semi-professional football in Germany, finished a Bachelor degree and worked for a German NGO which used football for HIV Awareness in South Africa. I came for the 2010 World Cup and fell in love with the country and a girl. My heart never left, the rest is history... I also did a Sport Management/Communication certificate with FIFA at NMMU.

Some of your Passions

Passionate about German and English football. I’m passionate about David Moyes NOT being the right coach for Man U. I also like playing 5s and run/cycle when I find time. Often I end up in front of my computer playing Football Manager.
