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.

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