Fortune's perfect Manchester United start

23 March 2016, 16:27

Cape Town - Across seven years as a player at Manchester United, one game still stands out for South Africa’s Quinton Fortune: His full debut for the club, as his parents watched him play professionally for the very first time.

“I left Cape Town when I was 14 to go London to play for Spurs, and so my parents had never actually seen me play football,” Fortune explains on Wednesday’s episode of The Dan Nicholl Show.

“They had never been out of Cape Town, and so I flew them over. They’d never been on a ‘plane, and I think my dad was trying to open a window!”

Fortune also laughs about trying to understand Sir Alex Ferguson’s Scottish accent (doing a fair impression of his former manager), and recalls how special an occasion it was.

“To make my full debut, playing for my dad’s favourite team, and to score on my debut, with my parents in the stand, was beyond anything I could have believed.”

Fortune, who is currently doing his coaching badges in Manchester, also expresses a desire to one day coach Bafana Bafana, and is confident that South Africa’s football fortunes will approve. He also shares some novel theories on penguins and Niknaks, and debates going on holiday to North Korea.

The charismatic footballer is joined by Dakar Rally driver Giniel de Villiers, who reflects on his 2009 win in the famous race, as well as the preferred method of dealing with corrupt policemen wielding AK-47s; and new Miss South Africa Ntando Kunene, less than a week into her reign. Wednesday’s show also includes highlights of this year’s Bangkok International Tens rugby tournament.

Owing to live golf on SuperSport 1, Wednesday’s show will be broadcast on SuperSport 7, at the usual time of 19:00.
