Johnson challenges KZN on Bhele

The final day of the Absa Premiership season will mark the end of the exciting career of veteran striker Siyabonga Nomvethe, who plays his last professional game at King Zwelithini Stadium on Saturday.
 
AmaZulu coach Cavin Johnson praised Bhele for his dedication to the game for 25 years and challenged the KwaZulu-Natal government to take care of him as he takes a new journey in his life.
 
"Siyabonga Nomvethe belongs to the province. I challenge the KZN government to make him an ambassador of football in this province. We are talking about 25 years of professional football, representing not only in South Africa but also in Europe," Johnson said. 
 
"He must be honoured while he's still alive, this man must not suffer after what he has done for KwaZulu-Natal. They must take charge now, make sure he's looked after. There are many players we lost because of ill-discipline but Bhele kept going, a good example to the youth of this country." 
 
Usuthu, who have ensured their safety in the Absa Premiership, take on troubled Bloemfontein Celtic in a match in which they are expected to give some fringe players an opportunity for some game-time.
