SLTV: Dolly’s Situation Explained
Bafana Bafana U23 head coach, David Notoane has explained Keagan Dolly’s inclusion in his COSAFA Cup squad.
Both Notoane and Head Coach Stuart Baxter announced their COSAFA Cup and Africa Cup Of Nations squads yesterday, with the national team head coach set to reduce his squad to 23 players before jetting off to Egypt.
However, one player’s name appeared on both the AFCON and COSAFA Cup squads, with Head Coach Notoane explaining their decision to add Dolly on both lists.
“It’s a joint venture project, where we found a balance between our preparations and Bafana Bafana’s preparations for AFCON. Keagan Dolly, we know his challenges with injuries throughout the season and when we discussed with the coach, we agreed, let’s afford him the opportunity to get more game time after having overcome his injury challenges,” he said.
“So, we are happy to help Bafana Bafana in terms of the bigger picture which is AFCON preparations,” the U23 head coach added.
