Johannesburg - Former Platinum Stars Owen da Gama has lauded the decision of Bafana Bafana interim coach Steve Komphela to field a number of fringe players during Friday's international friendly against Gabon, according to a report on KickOff.

Da Gama castigated some senior national team players for becoming too comfortable in their positions.

Komphela decided to let five players leave the squad ahead of their international friendly against Gabon on Friday.

Captain Steven Pienaar, striker Katlego Mphela, midfielders Oupa Manyisa and Thanduyise Khuboni as well as defender Bongani Khumalo will all miss out on the clash at the Mbombela Stadium.

The players left after the squad's training session on Monday evening.
