Thabo Qalinge says his favourite player in the world is not Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo, but rather a Mamelodi Sundowns player.
The Orlando Pirates winger is slowly starting to find his feet at the club after a bit-part role earlier in the season, and has been wowing crowds with his array of skills.
Asked about the player that most inspires him, Qalinge tells KICK OFF magazine: “I’m very close with all my teammates from Mpho Makola and others, but I spend most of my time with ‘Jomo’ [Thabo Rakhale].
“We are very close and we talk a lot about football and former players. Jomo’s favourite player is Ronaldinho and mine is ‘Cheeseboy’ [Lebohang Mokoena].
“Cheeseboy inspires me and if you look at our situations, I think he deals with his thing in a good way and that inspires me.”
