Serero A No-Show At Bafana

Thulani Serero Is A No-Show At Bafana Bafana

By Soccer Laduma - Nov 07, 2017 01:58 PM

Thulani Serero has refused to report to the South African national team camp until Head Coach Stuart Baxter and his technical team guarantees the player game-time. 

Bafana Bafana reported to camp earlier this week in dribs and drabs, with the likes of Kaizer Chiefs players and the European-based contingent reporting to camp at a later time.

It has since been confirmed to Soccer Laduma that Serero, who is currently plying his trade in the Dutch Eredivisie, has refused to report for Bafana camp, with sources at SAFA revealing that the reason is that the player wants to be guaranteed game-time at the national team before getting on the flight to Mzansi.

Speaking to SAFA’s Head of Communications, Dominic Chimhavi, he revealed that the technical team is extremely displeased with the response from Serero, as the Bafana squad announcement was made more than two weeks ago, enough time for the player to make this particular decision and for Head Coach Baxter to take the necessary measures.

“Yes it is true, he does not want to report for the Bafana Bafana camp if he is not guaranteed to play, but what has disgruntled the technical team more is that he waited until the flight ticket was booked and all expenses paid before he made this decision.

“It is childish because in most African national teams most of the players are flying from Europe to represent their countries and don’t complain. This is not the first time with Thulani Serero, he has a history of misconduct with national team coaches.

“We have asked the player to put his grievances in writing and the association will make a decision after that,” Chimhavi told the Siya crew.

I see some comments saying call up qalinge. Please ratties stop hyping up that boy, the past two games he's showed his inexperience in the final third with missing sitters and too many touches on the ball. Le nkwenkwe iyatatazela too much ngathi idle uqoh

@Sgelekeqe@ Please show some respect to Messi, don't ever mention Serero and Messi in one sentence, not even a paragraph.

I don't see any reason why we should cry over Serero. He's really not vital in Bafana setup. I believe we'd rather miss Madiba Magic in our national team than Serero. We stood by his S when Mashaba called him up even though he wasn't playing at his former club, we didn't even question his inclusion. Now he thinks he's in same WhatsApp group as Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. He can go to hell, SA has an over-production of midfielders. His absence won't even be noticed, same as his presence in previous games.

@ 1stage he didn't have any club 2 play 4 @ Holland & national squad coaches kept calling him up 4 Bafana Bafana matches, now dat he signed with a certain club he's becoming big headed. It's de beginning of his downfall. 2ys down de line he'll be signing with Cape Town City or Wits like de others
