CRITICAL: Neil Tovey

Former Bafana captain has shown slight improvement since suffering a heart attack.

Football legend Neil Tovey’s condition has improved slightly following a heart attack he
suffered while training in Durban on Sunday.

However, according to his brother Mark, the South African Football Association’s (Safa) technical director remains in a critical state, said Safa in a statement.

“There is a slight improvement from Sunday’s situation but Neil remains in critical condition and I ask all South Africans to keep Neil in their daily prayers,” said Mark Tovey.

“The doctors have been working round the clock and we hope for the best,” he added.

This is the second time since February 2015 that Tovey, 54, has suffered a heart attack while doing exercise.
