In this episode of our 2020 SF Glens Webinar Series, Quinton joins us for a Q&A session. During his 15-year professional career, the versatile midfielder/left back came up through Tottenham Hotspur's youth system before earning his first pro contract from Mallorca in La Liga.

On the international stage, Quinton earned 46 caps for South Africa and played in two World Cups. In the 2002 tournament, he was an influential player for "Bafana Bafana", notching a goal and assist in the group stage.
After his playing days were finished, he earned his coaching badges and joined Cardiff City FC's U21's staff as an assistant to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, now first-team coach at Manchester United. Last year, Quinton returned to the Red Devils as top assistant to Neil Wood for the U23 team.
