While the partnership has been billed as an international platform upon which to exchange knowledge, it is hoped that the arrangement will also forge opportunities for South African footballers to make the trip to Bielefeld and other teams in Germany. The Bundesliga side previously called four of Mzansi's stars their own after boasting the Bafana Bafana quartet of Delron Buckley, Rowen Fernandez, Siyabonga Nkosi and Sibusiso Zuma among their ranks in yesteryear. Elsewhere, Steven Pienaar famously represented Borussia Dortmund, a club Buckley also turned out, while made a name for himself abroad with the likes of VfB Stuttgart, Borussia Monchengladbach and Karlsruher. Lance Davids represented 1860 Munich and Rowan Hendricks had a brief stint at Eintracht Frankfurt, before which lesser-known Glenn Jordens turned out for Darmstadt 89 during the early 1980s. Share
