Doctor Makes Huge Aubaas Claim

Bafana Bafana and Kaizer Chiefs legend Doctor Khumalo has waxed lyrical over Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Bathusi Aubaas – not only because he wore his former shirt number.

Aubaas, 28, only made his Bafana debut in the 2-1 win over Morocco in June but one of the few players who featured in both games in the September international break.

After his display in the 1-0 over DR Congo, Doctor Khumalo expressed how excited he was watching the midfielder, who dons his former shirt number

“The only number that is doing well is jersey number 15,” he said jokingly when discussing Aubaas’ shot that bounced off the outside of the post.

“On a serious note, give credit to the young man. [He is] very clam, he doesn’t tackle aggressively. Look at the grass cutter [of a shot].”

While 16V was a bit more critical of Aubaas’ midfield partner Mlungisi Mbunjana, he claimed that the Sundowns man will be one of Bafana’s most important players going forward.

“This is the kind of midfielder we are talking about, a box-to-box type of midfielder. Yes, they are complementing each other with Mbunjana,” he added.

“But Aubaas, I’m telling you, he’s going to be the most-most [important] player in our national team.”
