SuperSport United's Cole Alexander eyes Bafana Bafana return
Posted: 16 November 2016 Time: 11:03
SuperSport United midfielder Cole Alexander is hoping to force his way back into Bafana Bafana reckoning when he returns from injury.
“That’s obviously my objective as I feel I have a lot to offer for my country," says Alexander, who earned his sole international cap in a 3-1 win over Swaziland in March 2015.
"But for now I need to recover fully and work hard so that I can get the nod."
Alexander is nearing full fitness after straining a hamstring in his club's 6-1 rout of Orlando Pirates a fortnight ago. And the former Polokwane City man is trying to stay positive following the setback.
“The timing of the break could not have come at a better time. It was really a blessing in disguise, you know," he tells KickOff.com.
“It gave me some time to recover after my setback and to start my rehab. I was very disappointed when I had to leave the field as I felt I was getting back to my best and then I hurt my hammy again.
“But that’s one aspect of soccer you cannot escape. I always try to remain positive under difficult circumstances. I’m just relieved it’s only a strain and not a tear and I had at least time to get back and not really miss a game.”
