Ofori: A new coach doesn’t mean anything


Ghana’s number 1 Richard Ofori has taken quite the jab at Bafana Bafana and he’s confident that his team will get the result later this evening at Cape Coast Sports Stadium.

Bafana coach Molefi Ntseki will be in charge for his second game at the helm after registering a 2-1 win against Mali  earlier this month in the Nelson Mandela Challenge.

The 26-year-old Maritzburg United goalkeeper is key for tonight’s clash having had some knowledge and played with most attackers in the Bafana squad.

“A new coach doesn’t mean anything, it’s a new coach, but the same players,” said Ofori, in reference to Ntseki.

“I saw the team list, there are no new players – most of the players went to the 2019 AFCON, so it’s basically the same team,” he told Maritzburg’s website.

The Bafana Bafana team will play Ghana in a 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

Ofori continued: “They are a very strong team. Any country, when you are meeting South Africa, you know it’s a very strong team. One thing I’ve noticed about Bafana is that they know how to play away games. We just need to play with confidence and at the end of the day we need to win the game, that’s the most important thing.”
