Fredericks: I Could Have Done More For Bafana

Stanton Fredericks is in the building, and has answered your questions! Today, he discusses why he retired, his time with Bafana Bafana, and how he got ready for big matches.

You quit football at the tender age of 36. What made you come to that decision? – LAPO_MOLEBATSI

Stanton Fredericks: I believed that it was my time to give other youngsters a chance to play and to show their talents and skill. I had done my part in football and I wanted time to myself. I gave football the better part of my life.

Do you feel you could have done more for the national team if you were given more chances? – Kaizer Eleven

SF: Yes, of course! When I moved overseas, it got a bit difficult for me to play in the national team, but if I was given more chances, I could have made a big impact.

In your playing time, which coach did you enjoy working under? – de dark chocolate Courtley

SF: I enjoyed working under every coach because you can learn so much from the different strategies each coach has. I must say that I enjoyed my time working with Shakes Mashaba.

Stiga, let's say you get a chance to be a youngster again; Wits, Chiefs and Pirates are fighting for your signature. Which team would you choose? – naty gamede

SF: Ha ha ha! I would choose Chiefs.

What were your fondest memories of Stiga?
