August: Gavin And Gordon Got The Best Out Of Me

Bradley August is in the building, and has answered your questions! Today, he discusses the national team and where he enjoyed his football the most, and we learn more about August off the field.

Which coach managed to get the best out of you, and which goal of yours remains your all-time favourite? – Siviwe99

Bradley August: The coaches who really managed to get the best out of me were Gordon Igesund and Gavin Hunt, and for the goal, I would say the one I scored for the national team on my debut in Congo.

What would you like to change in South African football? – Mabotsa_Shabza_Khosi

BA: Well, I would like to see all the clubs having better structures in place for the young players to come through. Also, it would be great to see our clubs helping their players to plan for their lives after football because not all of them will become coaches or remain in football.

Football has moved forward, yet it seems Bafana Bafana are still struggling to move along. What can you say about our national team? – TsietsoMocha

 

BA: You know, we are struggling, and failing to qualify for Afcon just proved it. We have a massive game on Saturday and it won't be easy, but the guys need to come together for the sake of our country. I remember when I was part of the national team, there were camps held in Europe where all those players based there would come and train for a few days before we had a game. I think that should happen now, looking at how many South Africans are playing overseas, and it's sad to see that they aren't given a chance to play for Bafana and this needs to be changed. I believe more monitoring of these guys will definitely help us moving forward.

You played for many teams local and abroad. At which club did you enjoy your football the most? – manocha-83

BA: I really enjoyed my time at Vasco da Gama and Ajax Cape Town.

Who is Bradley August? Tell us more about you, the person off the field. – AmuMadlophe

BA: I'm a very laid-back guy. I'm always at home and I am a big cricket and rugby fan. You would find me spending a lot of time watching sports and soccer from all different leagues, and I am a big family man.

You were a great player. Yhoo. Anyway, how is life after football? – mludowns

BA: Life is good! You know, I'm doing some coaching and I've done a few courses. I'm trying my best to stay in the game and to help improve our football.
