Rogers making peace with recall
Eleazar Rogers said he was finally getting over the fact he was withdrawn from the Bafana Bafana.
CAPE TOWN - Eleazar Rogers on Monday said he was finally getting over the fact he was withdrawn from the Bafana Bafana team last week.
He was called back to camp by Santos ahead of their relegation playoff against Chippa United on Wednesday.
Rogers said it was a bitter pill to swallow.
“I’m pretty much over it already, but it was a huge experience that I’ll never get back. I’m just waiting for the next opportunity to come and hopefully make the best of it.”
Rogers said he will have to wait until he gets call up.
“It was a lot to take in because I was prepared for the game. I can’t explain what went through my mind at the time.”
Meanwhile, the South African Football Association (Safa) is expected to interview Steve Komphela for the vacant coaching post.
He is up against Shakes Mashaba, Gordon Igesund, Gavin Hunt and Neil Tovey.
The new Bafana coach will earn between R400,000 and R500,000 a month.
