Jabba's Comments

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 national side.

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.

jamie rutherford says: who is the coventry player onb the left of that pin

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 THINGER!
