Quinton Fortune chats to media and fans
The current Manchester United ambassador in Africa, still based at Manchester in England, was part of the DHL tournament which is a legends outreach programme. He also got to play for the DHL team and also played for Standard Bank.
He lost in the semifinals with Standard Bank, who were beaten 4-0 by the champions Swazi Can, who went on to beat Royal Swazi Sun 6-5 in a penalty shootout. Quinton also played against Prince Lindani who was goalkeeper for First National Bank.
The two went on to present the winners with their prizes. In his brief interview with MTNFootball.com, Fortune said it was his first time to visit Swaziland.
“My grandmother would always come here abd I think I must somehow have some relatives here, but I’m happy with the reception I got,” he said.
Fortune praised the event that DHL, also sponsors of his former club Manchester United, hosted for the first time.
“It can be bigger and better next time. Otherwise it was great being here and playing football once again. I was happy with the competition, especially because I saw some young players but nothing much can be said as this was the first event,” he said.
Asked what he was currently busy with and how it felt playing football with Prince Lindani, he said it was an amazing moment for him and he could see the Prince has a passion for football and is a big Manchester United fan.
“I’m currently with Manchester working for them and also their ambassador in Africa while I’m also busy with my coaching at Manchester,” he explained.
