Phil Masinga was signed from Mamelodi Sundowns for
£275,000 by Wilko in the same raid that netted Lucas Radebe.
Initially seen as the better of the two, Masinga was a useful - if
slightly clumsy - centre forward, but with Tony Yeboah and Brian
Deane and the young Noel Whelan around, he didn't find it easy to
get a regular place. Leeds had problems renewing his work permit as
a result, and although it was eventually allowed, he was sold on
and enjoyed some success with St Gallen in Switzerland and Bari in
Italy, as well as maintaining his place in the South African
Joseph says: I want to know as from now where he is. I have some
rumour that he will be going back to Mamelodi Sundowns - is it
true? If it is so what about the new club from overseas? From his
South African fan.
Andries Sethole says: does Phil still intend to play in South
Africa? I think he can still play an important role in Bafana
Bafana. He is still the best, he should just settle down.

Fred A says: Seem to recall Masinga scoring one of the most
comical goals I've ever seen against the famed Arsenal back four of
the nineties on a pudding of a pitch at highbury. Arsenal must have
had at least 3 chances to clear the ball from their area, a
succession of defenders either miskicking or missing the ball
completely. Phil in turn also had around 3 chances, proving equally
incompetent at making a connection with the ball until finally
forcing the ball home from about 5 yards out. Wonder if this was
the goal that earned him the title "Waltzing Masinga" !?
Julian Bueno Mateu says: Soy español y hasta aquí
me ha llegado el Gran Maestro del GOL. Es mi ídolo desde que
juego al ISS pro. Me gustaría tener un vídeo tuyo,
sigo tus pasos brother me has hecho ganar mucho dinero. Vuelve a la
selección, Sudáfrica te necesita.
Ste says: The boy done good but should have done better - also
abit selfish of him bein a forward when if he'd have been an out
and out winger the song from the terraces would have had far more
potential as a rhyming sing song - MASINGA! THE WINGER! DO YER
