Mshishi Sheds Light On Bafana Plan Beyond AFCON

Mamelodi Sundowns and Bafana Bafana attacking midfielder Themba ‘Mshishi’ Zwane has opened up on the retirement issue, saying he is not even entertaining the thought as he still wants to improve.

At age 34 Zwane is still playing a key role for his club and country after initially being overlooked by current Bafana coach Hugo Broos between February 2021 and September 2022, missing 10 international matches in the process.

He spoke to iDiski Times writer Lorenz Köhler in the current edition of the newspaper from the on-going Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Ivory Coast, where he emphasised that what’s important to him is improving himself and fighting for his spot in the national team.

“Uhmm… to be honest I will just take each game at a time,” Mshishi told iDiski Times.

“As I said, it’s about me improving myself and trying to get better and better – and yes try to fight for my position [in this Bafana squad] and always be here [as long as I can] to represent the country.”
