RUSTENBURG - Bafana Bafana coach Pitso Mosimane has refused to accept that Moeneeb Josephs is no longer available for national team selection.

Last week, the Orlando Pirates goalkeeper announced that he will no longer play for Bafana, citing personal reasons.

Speaking at a training camp in Rustenburg on Monday, Mosimane said Josephs is welcome to join the Bafana camp at anytime.

"We haven't closed the door on him. Hopefully, he changes his mind".

The coach said he requested a meeting with the player to discuss the reasons for his sudden retirement, but Josephs ignored the invitation.
