Itumeleng Khune, Tsepo Masilela, Reneilwe Letsholonyane and Bernard Parker were recently called up for Bafana Bafana's match against Morocco on October 11. The four Glamour Boys will join up with the rest of the squad on Sunday, October 7.
The four players will travel with Bafana to Morocco just two days after Chiefs' Telkom Knockout clash against Polokwane City on October 5.
In addition, Eric Mathoho, Tefu Mashamaite, Siboniso Gaxa, Morgan Gould, Lehlohonolo Majoro, Mandla Masango and George Lebese have all been involved with Bafana in the last 12 months.
In Gordon Igesund's current squad, no other club has more than one representative from any of their PSL teams. With a hectic itinerary of domestic matches to be played in the league and cup, it appears likely that the added workload of international commitments could affect Chiefs' form.
Earlier this season, it was questioned whether Reneilwe Letsholonyane's flagging form could be attributed to his added workload with Bafana.
With Chiefs seemingly under extra pressure to defend their league and cup double this season, it remains to be seen how the club's international players are able to handle the physical and mental challenge of domestic and international duty.
However, on the plus side, there is an 11-day break between the game against Morocco on October 11 and Chiefs' next league match against Golden Arrows on October 22.
Why don't you have your say? Could the added workload of representing Bafana put Chiefs at a disadvantage?
