Mkhwanazi: I Didn't Expect It

Bafana Bafana and AmaTuks captain, Buhle Mkhwanazi, has been selected in the CAF Chan 2014 team of the tournament.

Although he is among the substitutes, he is delighted to be the only Bafana player to have made the cut. Mkhwanazi played in two Bafana matches, against Mozambique and Mali while he was benched for the encounter versus Nigeria.

The Bloemfontein-born defender made his permanent move to last season’s PSL rookies at the start of the season following a loan spell at neighbours, Mamelodi Sundowns, in 2012/13 season.

In 2013, Mkhwanazi was part of the national team that took part in the Cosafa Cup in Zambia which was his first call-up. Speaking to the Tuks website, the centre back said the selection will inspire him to work hard.

“I’m humbled to have made the team, I was not expecting it, this goes to show that people were watching and the two games that I played for the national team in the Chan tournament caught people’s attention. I’m happy that people have recognised me in Africa and I need to continue working hard,” said the 23 year-old.

Tuks mentor, Steve Barker, also praised Mkhwanazi and said they are delighted and proud as a club.

“We are very delighted for Buhle and proud as a club to have a representative in the Chan 2014 team of the tournament squad. Buhle deserves it, he has been working hard. He has overcome a lot of challenges over the past couple of years and now he is proving to show what he is capable of,” said Barker.
