Stars That Should Consider Bafana Retirement

With a new Bafana Bafana era emerging, fresh ideas are being injected into the team and along with those ideas come new players - most notably a younger bunch of talented stars.

The Fan Park crew will now take a look at experienced Bafana stars that should consider retirement from international football to make way for the new blood being bred into the national team.

Teko Modise

The navigator is without a doubt playing some off the best football of his career at Mamelodi Sundowns but Modise may find himself out of favour with the national team, as we know coach Shakes Mashaba plays without an authentic number 10.

Reneilwe Letsholonyane

Yeye may have been considered for Bafana a few times this year because of his top performances for Kaizer Chiefs. In spite of this, he was mainly used from the bench, indicating that he may not be the influential midfielder he once was for Bafana.

Siphiwe Tshabalala

It feels like a long time since Shabba glittered for Bafana Bafana and that’s simply down to the fact that younger players have been used on the left-flank in recent times. Names like Themba Zwane and Oupa Manyisa has been used as left wingers for the national team, and Shabba may find it hard breaking into the current squad.

Siboniso Gaxa

Pa Gaxa has been consistent for Chiefs this season and has been one of the best right-backs in the country for a long time now. Gaxa have been ousted by younger and more dynamic compatriots like Anele Ngcongca and Thulani Hlatshwayo and could well surrender the position he held for many years as Bafana’s number one right back.

What other veterans do you think should consider retirement from the national team?
