Coach Molefi Ntseki drops his verdict on Kaizer Chiefs star midfielder Mduduzi Mdantsane’s inclusion in the Bafana Bafana squad.
Mdantsane is part of Bafana as coach Hugo Broos replaced Percy Tau and Ntseki says his player will do well.
Ntseki backs Mdantsane’s call-up to Bafana and explains that as Chiefs, they celebrate his call-up to the national side.
