Back at SuperSport United for a third spell, the well-travelled defender opens up about his experiences in Europe and the challenges of readjusting to PSL football.
Goalkeeper: Itumeleng Khune
Itu is close to Wayne Roberts, and what stands out for me is his shot-stopping ability and distribution. His distribution is one of the best in the world – when I played with him he had gave the back four great confidence.
Centre-back: Joas Magolego
Joas was a centre-back and despite the fact that he was my competition, he taught me a lot and I will always be grateful for that. He was comfortable on the ball. Coming from Cape Town Spurs, I used to play the long ball a little bit too much and he taught me the Sundowns way of playing from the back.
Midfielder: Isaac Shai
Isaac had a cultured left foot and could play at both left-back and left wing. He was an underrated player and I was always surprised that he and Michael Manzini never got more Bafana Bafana caps. He was a good team player and contributed to the three league wins in a row at Sundowns.
Midfielder: Roger Feutmba
A left-footed midfielder, Roger never used his right foot. He had good vision – if you give him a ball in midfield under pressure, he would find a way to get out of it.
Forward: Siyabonga Nomvethe
When he starts to run at you, Siyabonga is unstoppable – he will finish you. He is good in the air and an all-round striker. He is the only South African player from the 2000 Olympic Games that is still playing.
