What's in the September edition of KickOff Magazine


The September edition of on sale and is full of great interviews and in-depth features.
The signing of Keagan Dolly by Kaizer Chiefs sent the biggest of signals of just how much they want to reclaim the glory days after six barren years.

Even though there have been concerns about his fitness, Dolly will still be expected to make a huge difference as the season progresses. KICK OFF details Dolly’s rise to his marquee signing at Chiefs.

After starting his career as a central defender, Rivaldo Coetzee has established himself as a potentially world-class holding midfielder and believes his career will now continue in that position.

In this interview with KICK OFF, he talks about how he has grown at Mamelodi Sundowns and the ambitions he still holds.

The coach who originally discovered Boitumelo Radiopane is in no doubt that the youngster will be the solution to Orlando Pirates' scoring troubles.

That might sound like too much of a burden on the shoulders of the teenager but scoring goals has never been an issue for all the years that Radiopane has been playing football, starting on the streets of Vaal.

We profile the youngster’s rise to stardom.

Bafana Bafana’s latest quest to qualify for a FIFA World Cup begins in September when new coach Hugo Broos will finally take charge of the team for the first time.

They have been drawn into a difficult qualification group along with recent foes Ghana, neighbours Zimbabwe and the always tricky Ethiopia, as KICK OFF’s Mark Gleeson reveals.
