Zungu Praises Bafana Camp: No Drama Or Egos

Bongani Zungu Enjoyed This Month's Bafana Camp

By Soccer Laduma - Mar 28, 2018 10:52 AM
Bafana Bafana’s Amiens SC midfielder, Bongani Zungu, has praised the recent national team camp, saying that there was a ‘positive atmosphere’ throughout.
 
 
The 25-year-old returned to France yesterday evening ahead of his side’s clash with Lille on Sunday, where he will face off against his international teammate, Lebo Mothiba. 
 
Zungu played his role in securing the trophy at last week’s four nations tournament in Zambia, with South Africa seeing off Angola and the hosts on the way to victory.
 
Stuart Baxter said before the camp that he wanted to ‘win and learn’ while bringing in a host of younger players such as Reeve Frosler, Phakamani Mahlambi and Siphesihle Ndlovu to get accustomed to life within the national team.
 
Zungu, whose reputation in Europe continues to grow, thinks that the type of personalities in the camp helped when it came to the end result.  
 
 
Speaking to the crew, Zungu said, “Everything was really good in this camp, and the coach made it clear from the start what he wanted to achieve. We, as the older players, made a presentation to the youngsters that came in, where the coach asked us to hand over their jerseys. I think that showed that the coach was trying to send a signal to us, to create a link between the experienced players and the new ones. 
 
“There was a just good vibe in this camp, with a really nice, positive atmosphere, there was no drama or egos. The coach told us from the word go that nobody should try and disturb things. It was just a happy place to be, and it reflected in the result that we got.”
 
Bafana beat Angola on penalties after a 1-1 draw before a 2-0 victory over Chipolopolo clinched the trophy.

I so wish that the senior players can stand up to be counted, take full responsibility to guide younger ones as per Baxter's initiative, but that can only be achieved when as a country we identify certain players that are going to form foundation of our national team & stop with this chope and change

after watching that game of Spain Vs Argentina, I just realized that Bafana Bafana is far from reaching the highest standard of football.
