Pitso 'picked' unfit Masilela
Johannesburg - The agent of Bafana Bafana star Tsepo Masilela has criticised sacked coach Pitso Mosimane for continually playing the left-back when he is not fully fit, reports the Sowetan
Masilela limped out of Sunday's 1-1 draw with Ethiopia after 35 minutes
with a recurring hamstring problem and clearly struggled throughout his
time on the pitch, his mistake contributing to the visitors' goal.
But it was a familiar scene. An unfit Masilela limped out of the
friendly with Ivory Coast after just 26 minutes last November, and then
staggered through to half-time of the 0-0 draw with Senegal in February
before being replaced.
His European-based agent, Paschalis Tountouris, said he should never have been in the starting line-up for any of those games.
Mosimane was sacked as Bafana Bafana head coach, SAFA confirmed on Tuesday morning.
