Former Leeds striker Phil Masinga dies aged 49

Phil Masinga in action for Leeds United during his time at the Elland Road club

Masinga made his debut for South Africa in July 1992 against Cameroon in his country's first match following readmission to worldwide football by Fifa after the end of Apartheid.

"I am really gutted". He formed part of the South Africa squad that won the 1996 Africa Cup of Nations squad.

The former forward made 31 league appearances for Leeds, scoring five goals.

Ex-Nissan chairman Ghosn indicted by prosecutors on fresh charge
The boards of Nissan and its French 43.4% owner, Renault, met yesterday for an update on the Ghosn investigations. But even Ghosn's lead lawyer Motonari Otsuru had earlier said it would be "very difficult" to secure bail.

With the very sad news of his passing, we take a look at some of Chippa's finest strikes.

According to reports in the local media, Masinga had been admitted to hospital early last month with an illnesss.

Retired South Africa captain Lucas Radebe, who played with Masinga at then English top-flight club Leeds United in the 1990s, said the country has lost a "great legend".

In addition, he joined Abu Dhabi's Al Wahda in 2001 where he put his name on the scoresheet on 130 occasions out of 253 matches, eventually choosing to hang up his boots in 2002.

Although he was a victim of the "boo boys" on a number of occasions, Masinga usually silenced his critics by doing the job on the field of play. "The thoughts of everyone at the club are with his family and friends". I'll never forget Phil and the chief arriving at #ER full of smiles and hope....and thermals!

Dominic Matteo added: "Shocked and saddened to hear the News of Phil Masinga passing away at such a young age".
