The latest edition of KICK OFF Magazine (Issue 487) is out, with a number of big-name interviews, informative articles and nostalgic stories to give you your monthly football fix!

In this issue, we sat down one-on-one with Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane as he tells us what makes him tick and how he likes to operate at Chloorkop, while Benni McCarthy reveals the differences he experiences on match day as a coach compared to being a player.

Orlando Pirates’ Innocent Maela gives us the lowdown after returning to the Soweto giants from a stint in the National First Division, while we call in the experts as we analyse the potential of Wiseman Meyiwa and his fellow Kaizer Chiefs youngsters, and whether or not they can take up the mantle and guide the Glamour Boys to success in future.
