Cape Town - Bafana Bafana assistant coach, Thabo Senong, believes that William Twala can become an influential player at national level.

Twala featured in Bafana’s last game against Mauritius and put in a decent performance as they won 2-0 on the day and 5-0 on aggregate.

Senong believes that the wide-player has all that it takes to become an important member of coach Shakes Mashaba’s squad.

“This player has got body feints, he’s got the element of surprise so he can always cause the opposition trouble,” Senong said to Sport24.

“You never know if he is playing in a wide left position or in the inside channel.

“He’s the kind of player that we need, he’s highly mobile, highly technical – in the mould of Oupa Manyisa.”

Senong and Mashaba have recently come under scrutiny for their selection policy but the assistant coach remains steadfast in his belief that all players from all clubs deserve a look in at national level.

“It is important to give such players a chance because he contributed so much for Chippa United.

“He’s still adapting to international football but we believe that he can become a very influential midfielder in South African football,” he concluded.
