Coaches pour their hearts out, players withdraw due to injuries!

Dean Furman, Anele Ngcongca and May Mahlangu all face injuries.

Bafana are preparing for friendlies against  Swaziland  tomorrow and Nigeria on Sunday.

According to coach Shakes Mashaba, no replacements would be made from the initial 30-member squad.

Mashaba, also had a dig at his critics during a press conference yesterday.

“Nobody would have expected me to say this. I am Ephraim Mashaba, those who still doubt my qualities are wasting time,” he said.

“People are still questioning whether I am the right person to coach this team or not.

“Who is the right person? I am a South African by birth. I deserve to be here and my [skin] colour does not stop me from coaching the national team.”

Bafana take on Swaziland tomorrow at Somhlolo Stadium (7pm) and Nigeria at Mbombela on Sunday (3.30pm)

Meanwhile, Downs‘coach Pitso Mosimane is unhappy at the way his players’ have been treated by Bafana Bafana coach.

According to Mosimane his selected players have not had an important role in Bafana thus far.

This after two of his players who were part of Bafana Afcon squad did not make it on the field.

 “What must I say if, they ask for five players I will give them five players? But if they don’t play them, then I have a problem,” says Mosimane whose team is on form lately.
