Mark Williams brings out autobiography


Mark Williams has announced the release of his autobiography, 'From Gangster to Soccer Legend'.


The 54-year-old famously scored both goals in the 1996 Africa Cup of Nations final against Tunisia as Bafana Bafana lifted their first - and so far only - bit of silverware.


Williams started his professional career at Jomo Cosmos, and also played for Mamelodi Sundowns, Hellenic, Cape Town Spurs, Kaizer Chiefs and Moroka Swallows in South Africa.


His first overseas move came in 1995 when he joined Belgian side Molenbeek, while he also had spells in England (Wolves), Brazil (Corinthians) and China before calling time on his career in 2003.


“I'm happy to announce that my book is finally done! I can’t wait for you to read and understand the behind-the-scenes of my story, from nothing to a hero, all because I wasn't willing to give up on my dream,” Williams said on his Instagram account.


Williams will be on hand to sign some copies at the book launch at Exclusive Books in the Rosebank Mall on July 29.
