The Belgium coach has further told the public that Zwane is simply not the right age to be selected for Bafana Bafana.

Asked if he has been left disappointed, Zwane said nope, he is at peace.

“Not at all,” Zwane said to Kick Off.

“I am a professional player, and what I can say is that I respect the coach’s decision. I have to respect the coach’s decisions. I support the guys all the way.

“I don’t have anything against the coach, and as I said, I respect his decision and am supporting the guys.

The Tembisa-born player does however harbour an interest to retain his place in the Bafana Bafana side in the future.

Obviously as a player, I will keep pushing in the hopes of being selected, and if not, I will still keep pushing,” the player known as ‘Mshishi added.

There are things that I still need to achieve personally and with the team. I have to push and try to improve in every game I play,” he concluded.
