Sifiso Myeni was in high spirits on Thursday afternoon in anticipation of the action on the weekend where the spotlight will be on him once again.
Myeni, a former Orlando Pirates and Bidvest Wits star, recently resurfaced at Glad Africa Championship side – TS Sporting after a year and six months in football wilderness.
With TS Sporting facing Bloemfontein Celtic in the quarterfinals of the Nedbank Cup at KaNyamazane Stadium this coming Sunday, Myeni is thrilled that his face will once again be on national TV.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank God first. Looking back, one year six months, I didn’t think I could be here speaking to the media having a press conference and doing interviews. It’s quiet good that again I am going to be on TV as in live. For me it is quite good. This is one game that since we have been training that players look forward to. You are playing a Celtic team, which has been doing well in the league,” said Myeni.
The 31-year-old speedy winger is delighted to be guiding a number of youngsters in his side.
“It’s not all about playing. For me it’s about making sure that the youngsters are grounded. We have a good young team. Going into Sunday’s game it is going to very difficult. We are playing a PSL team. We are going out there to make sure that we are giving our all and we see what happens,” said Myeni.
“Motivation wise, I always tell them that every game that you play, you will never know who is watching. With this game it’s very important that they must know we are the last eight teams that are standing.
“For them to make sure that they stay grounded. I have been there. We, players who have been there like me, Oscarine (Masuluke) and Sbu Khumalo, we know what to expect on Sunday but for us is to make sure that the youngsters know what to expect.”
