The former Chiefs player spoke with the media when he visited the Dlams Sports Festival in Mzimkhulu this past weekend. He was there to scout promising talent for Amakhosi.
“The fact that these boys won this tournament tells you that they are talented and they are good enough to dominate the Southern African region. When they come back, they need to be given the opportunities in their senior teams. I’m talking about Wits, SuperSport United, Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates and us. This is the very same squad that can play in the Under-23 and dominate,” Zwane said.
Amajita will now focus on upcoming qualifiers for the World Cup in 2019. The qualifiers will commence next year.
“But if they will go there and win against Botswana, Lesotho and then bring them back here to play at the Under-20 level then there’s no growth. They have confidence now so let us throw them at the deep end. If they come back they must be given opportunities of game time in the PSL. If we do that, we will have a strong Under-23 team. We will have a solid backup,” Zwane said.
