Dennis Masina wishes Swazis well

Posted: 30 July 2010 Time: 12:15

Orlando Pirates midfielder Dennis Masina says he has no hard feeling after being left out of the Swazi national team squad to face Ghana in the Afcon qualifier game billed for Somhlolo Stadium in September.

Masina was surprise omission in the Sihlangu Semnikati squad announced by head coach Musa Zwane in preparations for the game against the Black Stars to be played in Mbabane in few weeks time.

Zwane has told Swazi media that Yuki has been dropped from squad due to lack of fitness and game time at Pirates.

Speaking to, Masina said despite being disappointed at being left out of the squad he wished his country well in the Afcon game.

"I have sacrificed a lot coming back to Swaziland to play for the national team and most of the time not even getting an allowance or refund for travelling expenses but I committed myself to the team because I love my country.

"I would have loved to help my country during the game against Ghana but seemingly the coaches have their own ideas. I feel somehow that this is a blessing in disguise as it will allow me more time to focus with career and fight for my jersey at Pirates."

Good move by the Swazi coach. How do you call a player who is not playing for his team, whether its local, overseas or overboard. I hope Pitso is taking notes. Masina wont make it at Pirates. Its time to move to a team that will give him play time. At Pirates one chance that they give you, use it to your maximum.

Atleast you are commited Mr. Masina. The coach was right to drop you because it will be unfair if you are selected ahead of other deserving players. Its a wake up call, take it like a man. Atleast it will give you more time to be in a good shape ahead of the new season. I am endorsing the coaches decision, they were justified. Good Luck to Isihlangu!
