Mosimane: No time to relax
Johannesburg - Bafana Bafana coach Pitso Mosimane addressed the media on Monday, saying there is no time to relax as they start their African Cup of Nations 2012 qualifiers against Niger at Mbombela Stadium on Saturday, less than two months after concluding the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
He said that the players will have to play with pride and commitment for their country in order to ensure success.
“I always tell my players that wearing the national team jersey is very important and they should play to represent the country with full commitment and pride.”
“This will help us win all the home games which is very important. We will be going into this game knowing we need the three points and we won't relax at all. There are still more games to play which we need to do well as well. Our next game is away to Sierra Leone and we have to start well to go forward with high spirits and morale," Mosimane concluded.
He then urged the nation to rally behind the team as they start the campaign.
