Chiefs Defender Opens Up On Bafana Exclusion

Thabani Dube's exclusion from the Bafana Bafana squad recently has given the Kaizer Chiefs defender even more motivation to work harder to get back into the team. 

Dube has, in recent times, earned himself a spot in Hugo Broos' Bafana Bafana squad, showing just how much his game has gone to another level after his impressive campaign with Richards Bay in the GladAfrica Championship last season. 

The defender, however, was left out of the squad which recently faced Ethiopia in back-to-back FIFA World Cup qualifiers, but that did not get him down at all.

"Actually, that was motivation for me to work even harder, so that I can be called in the next Bafana camp. So it was a motivation. I have to work hard to be in the national team, I have to work hard to play," Dube told the Amakhosi media department.

Despite a fairly good start to life at Chiefs, Dube is well aware that he still has to improve his game. 

"I am not yet there. I am still going to get there. I still need more games to get to where I want to be, to get to where I used to be actually. I think I have done well, but I need to improve obviously."

After cruised to a 4-0 victory when they hosted Chippa United over the past weekend and now need to face a SuperSport United side they have not beaten in the last five Premiership matches.

"So far, I think everything is going well. Judging from the past two games, we've been doing well and we've been doing very well at training. I think we are ready for this upcoming game against SuperSport.
