Bafana Players Made To Sleep On Bunk Beds

Bafana Bafana had to spend a large portion of their 16-hour layover on the way back from their Central American tour in tiny rooms with bunk beds.

The National Team emerged from the tour with a 1-0 win and a 1-1 draw against Costa Rica and Honduras respectively and one could say that football-wise it was a relatively successful trip.

However, administratively it was a bit of a nightmare from start to finish, with both legs of the journey suffering mishaps.

Initially the team’s transit visas for the United States got mixed up prior to their departure, which meant the team had to fly to Costa Rica via Panama and Brazil, arriving shortly before their game.

Things didn’t improve from there with the return flight also suffering complications and Shakes Mashaba’s charges only returning last week Saturday, which in turn meant that a number of PSL fixtures had to be postponed.

The latest news reaching the Siya desk is that not only did the players have to endure long travel periods but after landing for a layover in Sao Paulo on their return home at 03h00 in the morning, they had to sleep in bunk beds.

Players had to share rooms with each other and were booked into FastSleep rooms which consist of one bunk bed and small TV during their 16-hour layover, while Mashaba left the team in Honduras and caught a flight home the day before.

Let us know your thoughts on this in the comments section below. Is it not such a big deal for players to sleep on bunk beds or should the national team be better prepared and looked after?
