According to KickOff, Masilela has been in fine form for Amakhosi this season, but the 29-year-old is adamant that he backs the selected players.

“It looks like they want to have young players and rebuild the team for 2022,”said Masilela.

“I will support the team and as for me, I got my chance and I’m happy I played over 50 games for the national team.”
