Cape Town – The already printed book celebrating the career of Springbok's propensity for Tendai "Beast" Mtawarira was recalled by the editors – at the request of the player himself.

Early copying of Beast (Tendai Mtawarira, with Andy Capostagno, Pan Macmillan) had already given various media, including Sport24.

But a press release was published on Thursday, indicating that the book, in which controversial comments by the player about Bok's former coach Peter de Villiers had already been highlighted by some media, would be "late".

Read: "World-renowned rugby player Tendai Mtawarira, co-author Andy Capostagno and editors Pan Macmillan have decided to postpone the launch of Mtawarira's highly anticipated book.

"The memoir, titled Beast, is due for release on July 1, but will be released later this year."

Mtawarira is quoted in the statement as saying: "With the reaction of some commentators to a single paragraph of the book as a possible indicator of the level of attention and interest of the media, we find it necessary to postpone publication of the book so that I can focus only on my rugby in preparation for possible inclusion in the book. squad of the World Cup. "

The book shares ideas about Mtawarira's personal journey, including his relationships with mentors and those who have helped shape his career as a powerhouse of the South African rugby fraternity.

He added: "A new release date will be announced as soon as it is finalized."

In the book, the shark-based veteran said of De Villiers: "He had been a great Junior Springbok coach but I think at the highest level he was probably lucky enough to get a good team of players … Peter did not do much, most of the work was done by the players."
