Ex-Man Utd star Fortune: South African talent must leave for Europe

Former Manchester United midfielder Quinton Fortune says South Africa's best talent need to leave the country for Europe.

Fortune admits concern over the lack of young talent making an impact on the big stages of Europe.

He told manutd.com: "For players to improve they need to leave and go to play in England, Spain, Italy and France which have the best leagues in the world. Unfortunately the players in South Africa have a good lifestyle, earn decent money and see no reason to leave."
