For the third time in seven years, Manchester United and South Africa football legend Quinton Fortune, 41, is back in Uganda, arguably the ‘Pearl of Africa’.

During his stay, Fortune will share his vast footballing knowledge with young football players and coaches for a two day tutorship program with Excel Soccer Academy.

The former left back was capped 46 times by his native South Africa, including two FIFA World Cup tournaments in 1998 (France) and 2002 (with a goal in South Korea and Japan).

Clad in a blue shirt, black trousers and brown sneakers, Fortune arrived in Uganda on Saturday.

Lungi Koni, the Kansai Plascon Brand manager welcomed the jovial football legend who won three English Premiership titles with Manchester United.

The South African, who enjoyed a 7 year spell at United, is in the country as part of a Kansai Plascon and Manchester United partnership.

This partnership will also include a visit by United coaches later in the month for a two-day tutorship program with Excel Soccer Academy.

Fortune is also in Uganda as part of a reward for winners who took part in a Kansai Plascon radio and online activation for autographed Manchester United jerseys.

It brings me joy whenever I see corporate companies investing in sports. There is an increase in the diversity of these brands. A while back it was only beverages, banks and sports brands that made investments in sports, but today Kansai Plascon a globally renowned paint company is investing in sports. Everyone is appreciating the benefits of sports investment, and that’s great for aspiring sports men
