Mahamutsa has been brilliant for the Buccaneers over the years, but he has always been overlooked whenever the national team is announced.
A lot of football experts as well as the fans believe Mahamutsa, who celebrated his 32nd birthday last Saturday, should be given a fair chance in the Bafana squad.
However, Mahamutsa said he is not going to cry for a Bafana call-up, saying that the national team coaches have their reasons for not selecting him.

“I am a professional and I am not going to cry like a baby whenever I am not selected in the [Bafana] squad,” Mahamutsa told Goal.
“I am playing for a big club, and my aim is to do well at my team without thinking about Bafana Bafana. The coaches have their reasons for not selecting me. Maybe I am not good enough,” he said.
Mahamutsa said, not in so many words, that he is been a good player without the international experience that a lot of players get when playing for Bafana.

“But to be honest I am not playing to be selected in the national team, and I don’t mind if not selected, because I have been doing well without that [international] experience,” added Mahamutsa.
