Doc: He Couldn’t Deprive The Supporters Of The Entertainment

SportPesa ambassador Doctor Khumalo shared an interesting tale of his trip to Equatorial Guinea together with former Bafana Bafana teammate, Mark Fish. The legends were invited to celebrate the country’s 50th anniversary of their independence.

Khumalo pointed out that he enjoyed every moment of being on the field, even though he felt that he needed to be substituted during the game. However, the coach, his teammates and the supporters were against that idea and wanted to see more from him on the pitch. He went on to talk about the conversations that were held back at the hotel after the match.

“The coach, after the game, came to me to say he would have loved to substitute me but he couldn’t deprive the supporters of the entertainment they came to watch the game for. Every now and then, the supporters kept calling for me to get the ball. The local legends were in control of the game in the first half and we went to the break with them leading 1-0.

“We came back a different team in the second half and scored three goals to win 3-1, with three assists from me.

“When we got back to the hotel to have dinner, the Cameroonian guys were like, ‘We definitely have to go out.’ Unfortunately, Mark couldn’t because he was so tired he just wanted to go to bed after the game. I could tell as we were walking up the stairs to our rooms that he was finished. He said the last time he was that tired was after winning the AFCON in 1996.

“I’m not going to pretend like I was fresh because I was tired and it took me a few minutes to walk from the shower to the room. I was walking in slow motion, like a Robocop, and it took me about three days to recover from that game. Our Cameroonian teammates were singing praises of Fish and my fitness since some of the guys retired just recently.”
