Josephs not wanting apology
Cape Town - Despite being publicly humiliated by Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula
, Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Moeneeb Josephs
is not demanding an apology, the Wits shot-stopper’s agent says.
Mbalula got personal with the “Slim Kat” following his error-prone performance against Nigeria in their last game of the African Nations Championship (CHAN) on Sunday.
Mbalula said Josephs should be embarrassed and ashamed of himself after costing the nation a chance to advance to the next stage of the competition.
Bafana lost 3-1 at Cape Town Stadium to end their campaign in the group stage.
Speaking to the Kick-Off website
, Neil Jankelowitz said his client is a deeply passionate South African and on all occasions he has represented the country he has given "more than 100 percent".
He also added that Josephs was very disappointed with the second goal, but to be singled out and be ostracized like that by the sports minister in your own country was a very painful experience for him, as it would be for anyone.
The 33-year-old goalkeeper came into the side to replace injured captain and first-choice 'keeper, Itumeleng Khune
Khune sustained an ankle injury in the game against Mali where the two sides played to a 1-all stalemate at the Cape Town Stadium in the second Group A match.
Last Sunday's performance could signal the end of Josephs’ international career after earning 24 caps.
