Black Aces sensation Clifford Ngobeni has exclusively told Goal that he is still ambitious about playing for Bafana Bafana
Black Aces' Ngobeni made a name for himself at national under-23 level years ago, and he has revived his career in Mpumalanga after spending a season without playing at Golden Arrows. He said he has never given up on himself, even whilst at Arrows.
“Not for a single moment did I ever think of giving up in myself. Yes, it was very challenging, having to train with the team, yet knowing that you are not going to play. I think being a professional player really helped me to keep fit,” said Ngobeni.
Although he missed a lot of action, he has come back strong for Aces and is proving to be one of the players that coach Clive Barker will be relying on.

“I am still passionate about playing for the national team. I think I still have what it takes to be in the squad but I will be proving myself more at Aces.
“I must say that I am really privileged to be working with Clive. He is such a great man who is able to get the best out of each one of us. This is my opportunity to show my gratitude to Aces for believing in me,” said Ngobeni.
“I am hoping that injuries will not affect my game as it had in the past. I am just going to push myself and stay fit,” said the midfielder.
