I’m hurt – Langerman


Mamelodi Sundowns left back Tebogo Langerman admits he still has dreams of representing the national team and not being selected for Bafana Bafana really hurts him.
Langerman has always been one of the most consistant players for Sundowns over the years and despite putting great performances for the Brazilians , he’s never had to many opportunities to represent  Bafana Bafana.
The 33-year-old has just 10 caps under his name which is something he finds very confusing, given his consistency over the years.
“I’m available for Bafana Bafana, I can play anytime whenever I get a call up I will take it and I don’t know why I’m not even there,” stated Langerman.
“It does sometimes (hurt) because I still feel I can still give something to Bafana Bafana.”
Previous Bafana Bafana coach Stuart Baxter favoured Innocent Maela from Orlando Pirates and Sifiso Hlanti from Bidvest Wits for the left back position and the new coach Molefi Ntseki  has continued with the same trend after taking over from Baxter.
Langerman who has lifted 4 League titles and a CAF Champions League with Sundowns says he’ll just continue to work hard and focus on Mamelodi Sundowns .
“I’m not that worried because my job is safe at Sundowns of which is my club so Bafana Bafana is something that comes once or twice a year so, but if the opportunity comes I’ll honour the call up no problem.
“I work very hard and I run more than anyone in the team, I think it’s only Thapelo (Morena) who runs more than I do, I make sure I take care of myself.
“For me it’s always about the team, I work for the team I love my job and I make sure I do the right things so I can be here for as long as I can,” concluded Langerman.
