It is becoming increasingly popular to see footballers doing extra work off the field, and some of their off-field occupations are often related to the fact that they are commercial athletes who bring a certain buying power to the brands they work with
Msimango, who has over 11K followers on Instagram is a Nike athlete, and what is more apparent now is that he has struck a partnership with a formalwear designer, The Suit Lounge.
The lanky defender has already amassed a half-a-century of appearances in South Africa’s topflight, and he seems to also be a fitness fanatic which is a positive in terms of his footballing and modeling career.
With the game changing in subtle ways, height has become an integral attribute for defenders as their aerial prowess often depends on it, and with the various styles of football that some DStv Premiership clubs use, it is easier to whip a diagonal ball over the top and suddenly your defense is found wanting.
Msimango seems to be a prospect and has also been a part of the South African U23 setup.
