With Bafana Bafana’s midfield consisting of players plying their trade in both South Africa and Europe, Soccer Laduma takes a look at what they are all worth on the market.
Head Coach Stuart Baxter named his Bafana squad last week Monday, with the likes of Bongani Zungu and Kamohelo Mokotjo all making their way back into the national team setup.
South Africa will face Libya on Sunday, March 24, in the final Africa Cup Of Nations qualifying encounter, where Bafana need either a win or a draw to book their spot in the AFCON competition that will take place in Egypt this year.
However, looking back at the current squad that have reported to national team duty, according to the figures on transfermarkt.com, Bafana’s midfield is currently worth around ±R172.3m.
Here are all their current market values and as things stand, Bongani Zungu is the most expensive midfielder in the Bafana squad:
Bongani Zungu (Amiens): €3.5m (±R57.2m)
Kamohelo Mokotjo (Brentford FC): €2,5m (±R40.9m)
Thulani Serero (Vitesse Arnhem): €1.5m (±R24.5m)
Themba Zwane (Sundowns): €1m (±R16.3m)
Tiyani Mabunda (Mamelodi Sundowns): €750 thousand (±R12.2m)
Hlompho Kekana (Sundowns): €650 thousand (±R10.6m)
Dean Furman (SuperSport United): €650 thousand (±R10.6m)
