Masango ‘will kill them’ in Denmark


The former Kaizer Chiefs winger came on as a first-half substitute for Randers FC in the 33rd minute before scoring a 57th-minute goal to help his new side to a 2-0 win over Aalborg BK on Sunday.

Masango says he is enjoying the new chapter in his career and shares a bit of insight on what his English-born coach Clive Todd has asked of him in his role at The Horses.

“I’m enjoying myself there [in Denmark],” Masango said after Bafana Bafana training this morning.

“The coach always tells me that I must play in between the lines and use my speed and skill, so every time the midfield has the ball I must try and make deep runs. The league is physical, the guys are big, so I’ll kill them with my speed and my technique.”

Masango arrived for Bafana camp on Tuesday afternoon and enjoyed a full training session on Wednesday morning, along with overseas-based peers Tokelo Rantie, Ayanda Patosi, Thulani Serero, Daylon Claasen, Anele Ngcongca and Andile Jali.

The 26-year-old has expressed delight at being back in the national team for the first time since making the move abroad, and hopes to help the team in Mauritania this weekend.

“It’s an honour to represent South Africa, you know, at international level it’s every player’s dream, so I’m enjoying myself here and that side [in Denmark] as well,” he adds.

“I’m very happy that I got a call-up and I’m here to try and help the team going forward.”
