Africa Cup of Nations 2013: South Africa's Dean Furman profile

Midfielder Dean Furman is a relative newcomer to the South African squad being reshaped by coach Gordon Igesund.

Having left the country for the UK at an early age, he learnt his trade at Chelsea under Jose Mourinho before settling into an attacking midfield role at Oldham.

He talks about the similarities between Mourinho and Igesund and his sporting heroes Jonty Rhodes and Frank Lampard.

The 2013 Africa Cup of Nations takes place in South Africa from 19 January-10 February.
