Pitso Slams OdG’s Training & Bafana Selection

Pitso Mosimane has hit out at Bafana Bafana interim coach, Owen da Gama, over his training methods and the selection of only one left back in the last camp.
 
 

Da Gama is currently standing in after the departure of Shakes Mashaba and led the team to a 3-1 win over Guinea-Bissau and a 0-0 draw with Angola. This as SAFA look to find his replacement. 

While Bafana managed to set a new record by going 17 games unbeaten for the first time ever, Mosimane was not pleased by the situation with the national team, saying that his players returned to Chloorkop complaining.

‘Jingles’, speaking after the 2-1 defeat to Kaizer Chiefs, also criticised the decision to name only one left back in the side, Tebogo Langerman, given the defender’s hectic schedule of late.

When asked about Langerman’s absence in the XI, Mosimane told the media, “He was chosen as the only left-back in Bafana Bafana. Those are the things you get from Bafana. They choose one left back. Remember when we played Egypt and another game? He played both games then again. I have to manage that, and that’s why Langa was on the bench.

He went on to say, “It’s very difficult. You choose 25 players and one left back, I mean really? And you know the training in Bafana, hey? We didn’t train, we had to train for 20 minutes because they were complaining about hamstrings and tightness.

“You have to understand that Owen wants to be coach of Bafana, so he drilled them, and it’s not the first time. So we have to manage our players and keep quiet.”

SuperSport United last week gave SAFA permission to speak to Stuart Baxter about the position at Bafana, although he is yet to agree to terms with the governing body.
