SuperSport United’s Aubrey Modiba says there’s a lot he learns from the overseas-based players whenever he is in the Bafana Bafana squad.
Modiba was a late call-up for the upcoming 2019 Africa Cup of Nations back-to-back qualifiers against Seychelles this month, taking the number of players in the squad to 25.
“I think I’ve grown so much, my game has improved because I am learning a lot from the guys. Having to rub shoulders with players from abroad helps me learn from them. I am understanding the game better and better, so it’s always great to be in the team and rub shoulders with those guys,” Modiba tells KickOff.com.
Competition for Modiba on the left side, be it at the back or in attack, is tough. At left-back, he competes with the Innocent Maela and Sifiso Hlanti, while the in-form Vincent Pule is the man he has to challenge for a place further up the field. With Keagan Dolly out nursing an injury, Modiba’s chances of playing is high.
“The competition is always healthy. If I am playing left-back there’s Hlanti and there’s Maela. They are doing well for their clubs and I know that I can always learn a thing or two from them.
“Then if I am playing left wing, Pule is there. He is doing well for Pirates and I know we can push one another because we are still new in the set-up. There’s also Dolly, who is not in the squad. But I always read his game and maybe I can improve a few things in my game when I watch him.”
