Today, Daniel is not only a phenomenal player, but he’s also a brand ambassador for Adidas and a successful businessman.

Off the pitch, Daniel is a family man. He has a long-term girlfriend and a son, Keanu Antonio Cardoso, who he named after his late father. Daniel is a proud dad, and it shows through the tattoos on his chest, one of which is a portrait of his father above his heart and the other of his son. He also has a tattoo of Jesus on his right arm, a testament to his belief in God.

His calf bears a partial cheetah sleeve, which represents something very dear to his heart. On his left arm, there’s a young boy with jersey number 49, walking towards the goal with a soccer ball beneath his arm. The goal has three jerseys hanging on the crossbar, numbers 4 (Kaizer Chiefs), 3 (Free State Stars), and 17 (University of Pretoria), symbolizing the different teams Daniel has played for.
