Tovey: Legends Must Play Regularly

Former Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana captain, Neil ‘Mokoko’ Tovey, has told the Siya crew that South African legends must play regularly in order to stay competitive.

Tovey was speaking ahead of the game between Kaizer Chiefs Legends and Liverpool Legends to be played at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.

Brian ‘Spiderman’ Baloyi and other former players like John ‘Shoes’ Moshoeu, Doctor ‘16V’ Khumalo, Lucas ‘Rhoo’ Radebe and Thabo ‘Tsiki Tsiki’ Mooki will form part of the Amakhosi team while their counterparts will be comprised of John Barnes, Bruce Grobbelaar and Robbie Fowler.

“I obviously feel honoured to represent Chiefs in this game, it’s always a pleasure to take part in such games especially against Liverpool. We played against them before, Chiefs is a big club as well and I’m very honoured to play against the finest legends,” said Tovey.

There has been poor attendance of legends' games in the past with some supporters citing lack of fitness among South African legends.

"Well, yes we need to keep our legends playing more often, all legends around the country in order to perform better. Having said that, we still have players who are involved in the game on a regular basis. Playing with my former teammates is such a great feeling but facing Liverpool means we have to play competitive football. We have to watch their players because we know they have great players who can get behind the defence,” added the former Amakhosi skipper.

Tovey revealed that as legends, they would like to see more legends game or tours in the future.

Tickets for the game are still available from Computicket.
