AmaZulu goalkeeper Siyabonga Mbatha says he was heartbroken by coach Stuart Baxter’s decision to leave him out of the Bafana Bafana squad on Monday.

Baxter selected Darren Keet, Ronwen Williams and Bruce Bvuma as his goalkeepers for the upcoming Afcon qualifier against Libya.

“I am not pleased with the decision to leave me out of the squad,” Mbatha was quoted as saying by Isolezwe.

“I thought I was good enough to get a call-up, but it didn’t happen. It is clear I still need to work on a few things that the coach is not happy about. There is nothing left to do but to play and hope I will be called up someday.”

As reported earlier, AmaZulu general manager Lunga Sokhela has also expressed his disappointment at Baxter for not selecting the Usuthu goal minder.
