Stand A Chance To Get Your Hands On A Copy Of Neil Tovey’s Book. Here’s How…

Four lucky readers have the chance to win a copy of Neil Tovey’s book, ‘A Captain’s Journey’. The Bafana Bafana and Kaizer Chiefs legend takes us through an unforgettable journey.

‘This book is the life story of one of the great legends of South African soccer. It’s about true leadership, his passion for the game of football and his love for his country.’

– Kaizer Motaung

South Africans of all races remember the moment when Neil Tovey raised the Africa Cup of Nations trophy in 1996, with Nelson Mandela at his side wearing his number 9 jersey. It still represents South Africa’s greatest success in international football.

In his long-awaited autobiography, Tovey tells his fascinating life story, describing his modest upbringing in Durban, his entry into a mainly black sport in a deeply segregated 1980s South Africa, and his time as captain of Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana. He recalls his introduction to ‘muti’ rituals by team members and his growing popularity among Chiefs supporters, who nicknamed him Mokoko (boss chicken).

Tovey also writes about his experi­ences as a coach and as technical director of the South African Football Association (SAFA), and shares his insights about the state of the sport today. He talks frankly about his family life and about surviving two heart attacks, and gives insights into leadership and success. This book will appeal to all football fans, but it is also a fascinating story of a man who has lived a truly South African life.

Ernest Landheer was born in Holland and moved to South Africa in 1997 after marrying his South African wife, Laura Joyce. Since then, he has contributed to the soccer magazine Kick Off and was the editor of Kaizer Chiefs’ Amakhosi magazine. He also worked for a few soccer publications in Holland, including Voetbal International. He wrote the autobiography of Roger de Sa, Man of Action, which was published in 2002. He also published two books in Holland: about the former soccer player Dojo Perazic (2006) and about Brazilian soccer, God is een Braziliaan (2014). He is now the research and publishing manager at Kaizer Chiefs.
