Johnson’s Bafana Advice For Williams

Following Ronwen William’s call-up to the Bafana Bafana squad, his head coach, Cavin Johnson, says that he hopes he’ll ‘keep his head where it should be’.

Williams, 21, is yet to make his debut for the full national team, although he has represented South Africa at youth level.

Now, with next Friday’s friendly international on the horizon, Williams could well pull on a Bafana jersey for the first time, something that Johnson feels would be ‘about time’.

Speaking to the Siya crew Johnson said, “I think it’s early for him to be called up to the Bafana team, but at the same time I think that a player his age, who has played in the PSL for so long, it’s time that he got called.

“Goalkeepers mature a bit late. I think he’s at a crossroads and he needs to keep his head where it should be. In reality he should be the Bafana number one in the next few years, I believe that, he’s certainly got the qualities.”

Williams burst onto the PSL scene in the 2011/12 season and is touted as one of the best young goalkeepers that Mzansi has produced in recent years.
