People on social media saw the act as snubbing many other women who have played a role in developing football in South Africa.
Minnie started her career as a presenter on a music show, she tried acting for a while and recently made a move into sports presenting. In the past few years Minnie has been visible in the sports scene presenting a show called "Soccer Zone" alongside Thomas Mlambo and also working with Nedbank in search of the next football star.
Voicing out their opinions people said former Banyana Banyana captain Portia Modise is more deserving than Minnie after playing for the country for close to a decade, do you agree?
The saddest thing about this Minnie cover on Kick Off is that Portia Modise was a Banyana Banyana star for close to a decade. No cover— Sicelo (@SiceloDumakude) February 23, 2017
Portia=124 caps,101 goals & no cover— #ThePresident™ (@ThePresident_SA) February 23, 2017
Amanda=96 caps,24 goals & no cover
Janine=143 caps,11 goals & no cover
Minnie=Presenter & KickOff cover
Taking nothing way from Minnie, she doesn't deserve that cover. She has done NOTHING for SA woman's football. Disrespect by @KickOffMagazine— Khan D. Phuze (@NwaizerNKU) February 23, 2017
Minnie should perhaps be on Kickoff's soccerbabes not the damn cover. She's not a footballer nor is she a coach..— BLACKtastik (@Blacktastik) February 23, 2017
