Sifiso Hlanti not bothered about sitting on the bench for Bafana Bafana

In other Bafana Bafana news, Briefly News reported that Bafana Bafana defender Sifiso Hlanti does not have an issue with others being picked before him for the World Cup qualifying match against Ethiopia.

In the last few qualifying matches, Hlanti was dropped for Nyiko Mobbie in the full-back position. It seems as though Hugo Broos prefers Mobbie playing at left-back, which means Hlanti will be missing out.

The Kaizer Chiefs man, however, is not too bothered with it and is happy being selected when the coach sees it's the time to do so.

"I don’t worry myself that much because I think the coach decided to choose two other left-backs and I will respect every decision that he takes,” said Hlanti.
