AmaZulu FC first choice goalkeeper Veli Mothwa releashes the opportunity of representing his country after getting a call up at the age of 30 years, for the Afcon qualifiers against Ghana and Sudan.
Mothwa believes his open minded approach will help him gain valuable experience at Usuthu and Bafana.
“I’m personally an open person, when something happens I have to ask, I want people to tell me what’s happening where I am going or what’s happening where I am, you know I am not that kind of a person who says yeah I have made it, so I’m not going to listen to anyone”, alluded Motha.
The former Chippa United captain is happy with the support and advice from his coach (Benni MaCcarthy) who shared some few words with the short stopper ahead of the Bafana camp.
“Honestly the coach told me not to change what I have been doing at the team, he advised me to go there work the way I normally work here, nothing has changed it’s only the national team. He told me not to show happiness in the camp but display hard work and I am not there to add numbers but to add quality, so I still want to achieve more in my career”, concluded Mothwa.
He will be competing with Ronwen Williams and Itumeleng Khune for the number one jersey at Bafana.
