'Birds' star makes SoccerLife cover

Moroka Swallows' midfielder Lefa Tsutsulupa will appear on the cover of the December/January issue of leading sports and lifestyle magazine SoccerLife.

The 'Beautiful Birds' midfield maestro told the official Swallows website that he feels honoured to be chosen to be on the cover of such a magazine.

"I'm grateful to whoever made that decision to use my picture on the front page," said the humble Tsutsulupa. "It goes to show that people do appreciate what we are doing in the field of play.

"This is an inspiration to me to do more for Moroka Swallows and maybe one day I will do it for my country."

With his team-mate Bevan 'Stix' Fransman set for another Bafana Bafana appearance in the COSAFA Cup Final against Zambia, Tsutsulupa had these words of encounragement for the national team: "I would like to wish them the best of luck for Wednesday's COSAFA Cup Final against Zambia.

"Guys, it's time to avenge that 1-3 defeat we suffered at Newlands!"
