Former Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Steve Crowley has included ex-Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns stars in his dream team.

One of the best goalkeepers in his days, Crowley advises the current generation of players to lead healthy lifestyles and focus on their careers if they want to prolong their time on the pitch.

While selecting a team of 11 players and explaining his decisions, the 58-year-old insisted that he cannot single out just one of his coaches as the favourite to lead his dream team.

"I would choose all the coaches I had in my football career, they all had a good or bad point," Crowley tells snl24.com/kickoff.

"My team is obviously made up of the players that I played with, so I'm familiar with them. And obviously we also shared a similar love and passion for the game; the camaraderie we had together, the team spirit and wanting to win things.

"The game has changed, the players are a different breed of athletes today. There's much more in the game today with regards to fitness and training techniques, diet and all those sort of things that weren't in the game when we played you know. 

"But we used to wear our hearts on our sleeves, as it were." 

Crowley's Dream XI: Arendse, Motaung, Radebe, Tovey, Seale, Tinkler, Khumalo, Moshoeu, Mkhalele, Masinga, McGregor
