AmaZulu midfielder Khulekani Madondo told Goal.com that he feels he is now ready to play for the Bafana Bafana national team
Khulekani said he is working very hard to impress Bafana coach Gordon Igesund since it was him that brought him to the PSL.
“I think it’s high time that I get an opportunity to play for the national team. I think I have an advantage since Gordon is the one who got me to play in the PSL, after spotting my talent as an amateur. However I know that I will have to continue working hard and being consistent with AmaZulu,” said Madondo.
The midfielder made a name for himself whilst playing Maritzburg United and he said he simply made his move to Usuthu so that he could get recognition for the national team.
“AmaZulu is a big club, so basically that was one of the reasons I decided to leave United and join them. I know it is not merely about the club, but I think that the exposure and experience that I am getting here is incredible,” he said.
The midfielder has now become one of the pillars for Usuthu, and the AmaZulu coach has shown much faith in him. In the loss against Tembu Royals, Madondo was introduced in the second half and he added a sparkle in the team.
He was also involved in the goal that Joseph Malongoane scored, but he said he doesn’t want to think about the Nedbank Cup now, but rather focus on the league and ensure that Usuthu does not get relegated.“We didn’t play well, but I was quite impressed with the way we played during the second half. We created chances but somehow failed to score. We know we didnot do well, and we now need to shift the focus to the PSL. We have some exciting matches ahead of us, so we must make sure that we get up and forget what happened on the Nedbank but focus on helping the club to sit in a better position in the log,” he said.
