Yeye's return pleases Bafana coach
BAFANA Bafana coach Pitso Mosimane is singing the praises of creative midfielder Reneilwe Letsholonyane following his magical return to action on Wednesday night.
After being sidelined by a knee injury for three months, Letsholonyane walked away with the man of the match award in Kaizer Chiefs's 2-0 win over Mamelodi Sundowns despite coming on as a second-half substitute for Lucky Baloyi.
Wednesday's win saw Amakhosi finally ending their four-match losing streak that resulted in them bombing out of the race for the Absa Premiership title.
"I was impressed with the performance of Yeye (Letsholonyane), especially considering he was coming back from an injury after such a long time," said Mosimane yesterday. "It is good to have him back in action, he has been one of the most loyal and committed players for Bafana Bafana and Kaizer Chiefs.
"Yeye has always given Bafana Bafana unconditional support whenever he is selected. There are times where he is on the bench but he does not complain when we call him up again.
"Yeye is one of the players who must be commended for their contribution, just like Siphiwe Tshabalala, Teko Modise, Itumeleng Khune, Siyabonga Sangweni and many others.
"They never moan about monies when selected to represent Bafana Bafana, and are always there to fight for their country. I say welcome back, Yeye."
Letsholonyane is over the moon to be back in action.
"First of all, a big thank you to the Man upstairs. I would also like to thank my teammates, technical staff, management, medical team and the supporters for the support they gave me when I was injured. What makes me happy is that we won against Sundowns, more than me getting the man of the match award."
