Bennett judges current SA stars' quality

Players Abroad

Bennett Mnguni, who once scored against Real Madrid, says he can't see any current players who could move overseas like Percy Tau and Bongani Zungu.

The success of Tau and Zungu in Europe seems to have revived a desire in other South African players to compete against the best in the top leagues overseas.

The Mamelodi Sundowns legend suggests the coronavirus pandemic might have cause more damage to the dreams of any players who were hoping to earn an overseas deal.

"Right now it will be hard for any PSL player to win a contract overseas because this pandemic has done lot of damage globally," Mnguni tells KickOff.com.

"Being on two months' break will be hard for most to even compete when the season resumes, so for us to produce another player to Europe may be hard."

Last season Mnguni backed Sundowns star Themba Zwane to be the next player to move abroad but after this current campaign he doesn't see that happening for any PSL player.

"I really don't have any player in the PSL right now who I feel will be the next one to join the likes of Percy Tau, Bongani Zungu and Lebohang Phiri," he admits.
