Golden Arrows central defender Nkosinathi Sibisi has broken his silence about his consistent absence in the national team.
The 25-year-old has been one of the outstanding players for Abafana Bes’thende this season, giving his best whenever he has been called to play in different positions.
His good performance has not gone unnoticed as he is heading to Mamelodi Sundowns next season, but his omission for Bafana Bafana has left many wondering.
He told FARPost that he is patiently waiting for his chance to represent Bafana.
“What I believe in is that whenever the time is right things will fall into place, so for me it’s not a matter of getting disappointed because of missing out on the national team.”
“It means my time has not come yet come, other players have been doing well, so whenever I get a chance I’ll make the most of it,” said Sibisi.
The Durban-born reluctantly confirmed the news of his departure come the end of the season, though he maintained that he is focused on Arrows for now.
“To tell you the truth my focus is on Golden Arrows, whatever happens will happen at the end of the season but for now my focus is on my current team.”
“It is everyone’s dream to play in the CAF Champions League to represent the country in the continent, if we get there and hopefully we will, it will be a great pleasure for us and supporters,” continued Sibisi.
Sibisi has enjoyed leading the team in the absence of Matome Mathiane and he has done well with his teammates whom he believes they deserve the credit.
“It’s been a great experience for me to lead the team whenever Matome Mathiane is not there but I think credit must go to the team as a whole, because everyone knows their responsibility they know what to do when we get to the pitch and I think we’ve been doing quite well,” concluded Sibisi.
