Johannesburg - Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates legend Mark Fish says he will not be playing in the Orlando Pirates versus Manchester United legends match once his stint in hospital is over.

According to the Kickoff website, his fiancée, Salome Jansen van Rensburg, rushed Fish to the Vereeniging Medi-Clinic in the early hours of Sunday morning after Fish was said to have turned white and blue after finding difficulty breathing as a result of his severe back and chest pain.

Fish said that he was already having issues with his back and chest before the incident and underwent tests upon his stay at the hospital.

According to the 1996 AFCON winner, the doctor confirmed that there is nothing wrong with his heart, but that he ought to take better care of himself.

He did however say that despite not playing in Saturday's match for the Orlando Pirates Legends at Ellis Park, he will attend the match out of respect for slain Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates skipper, Senzo Meyiwa.
