Mamelodi Sundowns striker Bongi Ntuli, who was on loan at AmaZulu, has expressed that he would like to dedicate his national team call-up to Usuthu.
This comes after Ntuli banged in six goals for the KwaZulu-Natal side in his loan spell. Despite the club being relegated to the National First Division, Ntuli says if it was not for them he wouldn’t have received the call-up.
The KZN-born striker, who made his mark at Golden Arrows, is part of the 27 man squad that Bafana Bafana coach Shakes Mashaba called to play in the upcoming 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match against Gambia.
“I owe AmaZulu a lot for giving me an opportunity and believing in me. I was really hurt and disappointed when we got relegated because I had still hoped that we will survive,” said Ntuli.
“It was not easy at all at first, as you know that I had not been playing for some time, and so I had to work on my fitness level. The patience that the club showed in me really helped me to improve and get my form back,” he added.
With the new season kicking off in a couple of month’s time, Ntuli said he is looking forward to returning at Sundowns and facing the challenge.
“Yes I will be going back to Sundowns to face the challenge. At the moment my focus is doing well in the Bafana Bafana team. There is lot of hard work required there and I happy to be part of the team again.”Share
