Serero’s Bafana Future In Mashaba's Hands

Talented Ajax Amsterdam midfielder, Thulani Serero’s Bafana Bafana fate lies in the hands of head coach, Shakes Mashaba, this according to the South African Football Association.

Serero, who is back with his club in the Netherlands after being omitted by Mashaba from the 23-man squad which is currently in Gabon preparing for the African Cup of Nations finals in Equatorial Guinea, will know if he still has a place in the national team under Mashaba.

The crew revealed in early January that Serero was left behind due to the fact that the talented 24-year-old playmaker reported late for the Bafana camp, despite already being in the country. This did not go down well with Mashaba, who opted to exclude the Ajax man from his squad.

Serero played a crucial role in Bafana’s qualification campaign, scoring one of the goals in South Africa’s match against Sudan at the Moses Mabhida Stadium which secured Mashaba’s men a berth to Equatorial Guinea.

SAFA have declared that Mashaba will have the final say in what happens to Serero and if he will be considered for future games. This marks the second time the former Ajax Cape Town man has had a run-in with the national team, as he previously missed a World Cup qualifier against Botswana in 2013 under controversial circumstances.  

In November last year, SAFA moved swiftly and gave another European-based player, May Mahlangu a life-time ban for failing to report to camp ahead of Bafana’s qualifiers for the AFCON.
