LEBO MABOE GETS BAFANA CALL UP
23 June 2017
As we are busy preparing ourselves for pre-season preparations, good news reached the Maritzburg United offices, much to delight of the youngster who only made his debut in the PSL last season.
Maboe has been roped in as part of the Bafana Bafana squad that will participate in the Cosafa Castle Cup Tournament in Rustenburg from the 25th of June till the 9th of July 2017.
Lebo joined the Team of Choice from NFD outfit Mbombela United, and after playing a few games in the MDC, he was considered good enough to don the first team jersey, and when he got it, he grabbed the opportunity with both hands.
He was very instrumental in making things happen in the middle of the park for MUFC. "I am pleasantly surprised. I work hard at my game to keep improving, but I was not expecting a Bafana call up so early. It will be a great experience for me, playing for my country," said an elated Lebo.
"This boy is the future of Bafana. Besides being a talented workaholic, his attitude will take him far," commented Communications Manager, Brian Zuma.
