‘I want to face Sierra Leone’

By Sahr Morris Jnr.

Manzini Wanderers shot-stopper, Sandile ‘Nkomishi’ Ginindza, has sent a passionate plea to the Swaziland national team (Sihlangu) management to consider him for the crucial 2015 AFCON qualifier against Sierra Leone next weekend.

The goalkeeper was recently punished by the Sihlangu coach, Harries ‘Madze’ Bulunga but has profusely apologised for his behaviour that resulted to the coach’s deciding not to consider him for selection.

The shot-stopper, who took to the social network Facebook on Wednesday night, admitted that he regretted his actions hence hopes the technical bench headed by coach Bulunga will give him a second chance.

“I can’t stop thinking about the national team game, I know I’m not the best in the country but this big game can tell another story about me. FA, PLS, TD, national team coaches and Sihlangu fans, I’m sorry for everything I did, which I did not mean to,” reads a post from his Facebook timeline.

The keeper further reiterated his apology to the Swazi Observer and to all those involved in football and admitted that he was frustrated not playing for Sihlangu.

“I think I am competent and a call-up to the national team will be a boost for my career. More than anything else I would love to apologise for my misconduct,” he said.

The former Swazi international, who was once in the books of South Africa’s National First Division league outfit Sivutsa Stars, is not new to controversy. He once clashed with former Red Lions’ coach Siyabonga Bhembe at the Mavuso Sports Centre in South Africa last April where he held the coach by his shirt. They had to be separated by former senior player Bongiswa ‘Romario’ Nhlabatsi.
