Former Bafana Bafana and Everton midfielder Steven Jerome Pienaar, better known as Steven Pienaar, is one of the few African players to have played for major European clubs.
Steven Pienaar, at the age of 39, is not a retired football player who is living off the money he earned while playing.
Some may be curious as to which clubs the midfielder has represented. He began his professional football career with Ajax Cape Town, a team headquartered in Cape Town.
After two years of representing Western Cape, the midfielder decided it was time to see what life was like in Europe.
When you're playing for a huge club like Ajax Amsterdam, who has dominated the Dutch league for years, 94 appearances in only five years isn't exactly a child's place.
He then transferred to BVB, also known as Borrusia Dortmund, after five years with the club.
Above all else, Steven Pienaar has a lovely family. Take a look at their photos:
