November KICK OFF magazine

accreditation

In the latest edition of KICK OFF, the past meets the present as we look at the new generation of Orlando Pirates heroes, and salute the successful Champions League blueprint provided by the class of 1995.

ORLANDO PIRATES

Daine Klate takes us through the dressing-room and uncovers the things that make his teammates tick, providing exclusive insights into the squad that is on the verge of making history.

From Thandani Ntshumayelo scaring Thamsanqa Gabuza with a plastic snake, to Tlou Segolela giving himself new nicknames, we look at how the team chasing their second star spends their time together.

DANNY JORDAAN

The Safa presidency has a new, if familiar, face – but will there be major changes under Danny Jordan? He answers all your questions about what we can expect from his leadership, and how he plans to restore pride in the national team.

BERNARD PARKER

Everyone expected Kaizer Chiefs to be the team to beat at the start of the season, but Amakhosi got out of the blocks slowly. Bernard Parker, who invited KICK OFF Magazine to an exclusive shoot, insists that supporters should not panic as the side is on the verge of hitting top form again.

DOVE WOME

With all the expensive signings at Mamelodi Sundowns, it is a player that arrived with little fanfare who has been one of their standout stars. Dove Wome reveals the Brazilians are determined to right the wrongs of the last campaign in a one-on-one with KICK OFF.

PLATINUM STARS

Platinum Stars, meanwhile, have continued their superb run from 2012/13. Their MTN8 triumph proves that they refuse to be a one-season wonder. What has worked for Dikwena? We provide the answers.

EXCLUSIVE WITH DANIEL STURRIDGE

Think we only bring you local exclusives? Think again! KICK OFF sits down with Liverpool hotshot Daniel Sturridge – who asked to be on our cover! The Premier League’s top goalscorer opens up about his lack of opportunities at Manchester City and Chelsea, as well as why he never stopped believing in himself.

MESUT ÖZIL

Can assist-meister Mesut Özil help Arsenal reclaim their place at the top of the English game? We investigate ...

Doncaster Rovers duo Bongani Khumalo and Dean Furman also spend some time with us, taking us through their ups and downs with both club and country.
