Dino poses the question “are the people running Bafana Bafana the right people?” He also suggests that the legends of the game, such as Benni McCarthy and Doctor Khumalo, should be given a role to play.

Dino shares personal experiences that he has endured throughout his career, providing never heard before information as to what has been the biggest struggle he’s had during the course of him playing his football overseas. “the hardest part of being a professional athlete, is that you cannot be yourself, you have to live according to how people portray you” Dino continues by saying “Luckily that was only during the early stages of my career.”

Later in the show, Dino gives an insight as to how and why Mamelodi Sundowns rose to power, stating that it didn’t happen overnight. Risk and investment had to be taken and now the rewards are being reaped by the Brazilians.
