Once a multi-millionaire who owned petrol stations, boutiques and night clubs was declared penniless back in 2011. The man, whose historic goal took South Africa to its first World Cup in 1998, went from a million rand mansion in Klerksdorp to moving into the back room of his mother’s house.
He has lately been involved in the Castle Lager SuperStars campaign, where he has become a brand ambassador for the beer company.
