DOWNS MAY SNUB CHAN Published: Sunday, 2013/12/29 Mamelodi Sundowns have joined the fray and are also having doubts regarding the release of their players for the CHAN tournament that will start in two weeks’ time in Mzansi. Bafana Bafana coach Gordon Igesund on Monday announced his 23-man squad for the tournament that included six Kaizer Chiefs players. The tournament starts on 11 January. Amakhosi have since withdrawn their players citing a hectic fixture schedule and their participation in the upcoming Caf Champions League. Sundowns are also on the verge of joining Amakhosi in snubbing the CHAN that does not fall within the Fifa calender. Incidentally, Sundowns’ much-awaited fixture against Chiefs was moved forward to 23 January which is a rest period between the last round and quarter final of CHAN. But Sundowns insiders said that their technical team was concerned that their players may come back with injuries from the CHAN group stages. “If we release our players we will be giving Chiefs an ad ...
Bafana Bafan coach, Gordon Igesund named a strong squad for the tournament, but did not name any Orlando Pirates players, due to their local Premier Soccer League (PSL) commitments, as they look to catch up fixtures that were previously postponed due to the Soweto club's participation in the Caf Champions League. Instead, Igesund named a host of Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns stars, as well as a handful of Platinum Stars players. However, the AmaKhosi selected players have been withdrawn. According to Kaizer Chiefs manager Bobby Motaung, this is because the Chan tournament is not a FIFA-sanctioned event and that they are not obliged to release their players.

Lekgwathi was an integral member of the Pirates team that recently reached the Caf Champions League, and Moshoeu tells Goal that the 37-year-old defender should be in Bafana Former Bafana Bafana and Kaizer Chiefs midfielder John “Shoes” Moshoeu has lashed out on the criteria used by Gordon Igesund when selecting the players. Moshoeu feels that there are several players who have not been fairly considered for the Bafana squad despite their hard work and consistency. Speaking to Goal, Moshoeu said that he is still surprised that Orlando Pirates captain Lucky Lekgwathi hasn’t been called-up by Igesund and the other coaches before him. “I find that it very surprising that Lucky Lekgwathi has been ignored in the national team,” Moshoeu told Goal. “He is the most influential player in the Pirates team, but when last did you see his name in the Bafana squad? It’s absolutely shocking,” he said. Rea more on: De Sa: We were very poor against Celtic Igesund has previously spoken about rebuilding for ...
Bafana Bafana coach Gordon Igesund on Monday has named nine Orlando Pirates players in his squad to take on Swaziland in an international friendly on November 15. "I'm happy to finally be able to select Orlando Pirates players, all nine of them deserve to be in my squad," Igesund said in Johannesburg. Having been unavailable for selection owing to their Caf Champions League commitments, Igesund had now received the green light to include the Pirates players. With the second leg of the Champions League final to be played in Egypt on Sunday, Igesund called-up the likes of Rooi Mahamutsa, Happy Jele, Daine Klate and Thabo Matlaba for the game at the National Stadium in the Swazi capital, Mbabane, the following week. One notable omission from Igesund’s squad was Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune, who had been given a rest for the Swaziland clash. Pirates’ Senzo Meyiwa looked likely to start in goal, with SuperSport United shot-stopper Ronwen Williams the only other keeper in the squad. Igesund made ...

Amakhosi players are not horses - Bobby Kaizer Chiefs have told Bafana Bafana coach Gordon Igesund to go elsewhere to look for players for the Cosafa Cup - but not Naturena. When Igesund announces his squad today to represent the country in the regional tournament in Zambia next month, it will not include players from Chiefs or Orlando Pirates. Amakhosi have made it clear to Igesund that soccer 'players are not horses" and that they needed a break after a long and taxing PSL programme. "We had a meeting with Igesund a while ago, and we told him that we are not going to release any of our players for this tournament," said Chiefs' general manager Bobby "Bobsteak" Motaung yesterday. Pirates refused to release their players because they have a vital Caf Champions League fixture against reigning Confederations Cup champions, AC Leopards, on July 21 - a day after the kickoff of the Cosafa Cup. Chiefs' players who will be missed in the Bafana squad are captain Itumeleng Khune, Siboniso Gaxa, Mulomowandau Mathoh ...
