Kaizer Chiefs defender Thabani Dube's exclusion from the recent Bafana squad has given him even more motivation to work harder to get back into Hugo Broos' team. Thabani Dube has, in recent times, earned himself a spot in Hugo Broos' Bafana squad, showing just how much his game has gone to another level after his impressive campaign with Richards Bay in the GladAfrica Championship last season.
The young defender, however, was left out of the squad which recently faced Ethiopia in back-to-back FIFA World Cup qualifiers, but that did not get him down at all, instead he saw it as a motivation to put in the extra work to improve his game.
"That was a motivation for me to work even harder, so that I can be called in the next Bafana camp. So it was simply a motivation. I have to work hard to be in the national team, I have to work hard to play," Dube explained to the Kaizer Chiefs media department.
Despite a slow but fairly good start to life at Kaizer Chiefs, Dube is well aware that he still has to improve his game to a better level.
"I am not there yet. I am still going to get there. I still need more games to get to where I want to be, to get to where I used to be actually. I think I have done well, but I need to further improve obviously."
After keeping a cleansheet in their 4-0 victory against Chippa United over the past weekend, now the focus switches to a SuperSport United side that they have not beaten in the last five Premiership meetings.
"So far, I think everything is going well. Judging from the past two games, we have been doing well and we have been doing very well at training. I think we are ready for this upcoming game against SuperSport. - Thabani Dube.
