Nkosi disappointed at firing of Middendorp


Nkosi said he couldn’t believe it when the news was delivered that the former Kaizer Chiefs coach had been fired, but he was quick to add that he is ready to work hard in order to convince the new coach that he is ready to play for the team.

“Obviously, I am disappointed. He knows me in and out, having worked with him since our days at Chiefs. I was just beginning to settle in well here, thanks to his help.

“However, this is football and I have been in the game long enough to be able to handle this kind of situation.

“I haven’t heard or know anything about the new coach, but I am ready to work hard to impress whoever takes over.”

Nkosi says he has no hard feelings about being left out of the Bafana Bafana squad for the African Cup of Nations in Ghana next month.

“I respect the coach’s decision. It is not the end of the world for me because I know Carlos Parreira believes in my abilities and so it is just a matter of time before I make the team again.”
