During the 4-1 win for Arrows against AmaZulu earlier this season, Siphelele Magubane came up against his idol, Siyabonga Nomvethe. Although the Mandeni-born player didn’t have much time on the field with his idol, as he was substituted minutes after the legendary striker was introduced for Usuthu late in the second half, he still has fond memories of coming up against the former Bafana Bafana forward.       

In an interview with Soccer Laduma, Magubane has described the experience while also speaking about the differences between playing in the NFD and PSL.

“Both leagues are tough, but the level of football is different. The PSL is more about your tactical and technical awareness. In the PSL, you need to think and know where you are, with or without the ball, whereas in the NFD, it’s more physical. As a footballer, you must be able to adapt to any situation you come across. Playing in the PSL for me has been great and I am enjoying every moment of it. I haven’t played much, but there is room for improvement. The most memorable thing that has happened ever since I have been in the PSL is playing against guys that I was watching on TV as a kid. That happened recently when we played AmaZulu in the KZN derby, where I got the opportunity to play against my childhood idol Siyabonga Nomvete. That moment I cannot describe it, yho (goes silent),” said Magubane.
