"The national team [for Jali], I don't know," said Mosimane when asked if it was the right time for Jali to return to Bafana.

"He can answer that question. As long as he is playing at the highest level, this is the highest level on the continent. There is no other bigger level. We play Wydad here. We play Wydad away. Which other level do you want?
