Kaizer Chiefs midfielder, Siyethemba Sithebe has revealed how he re-gained his confidence after having been dropped by coach Arthur Zwane.
Sithebe has seemingly fallen out of favour with the coach due to inconsistent performances at the beginning of the year and was also linked with a loan move away from Amakhosi in the recent transfer window.
The 30-year-old midfielder came on in the second half and made a massive impact for his side against Mamelodi Sundowns, despite them losing 1-0 at the FNB Stadium last month. As a result, Sithebe has played every match since then. Ahead of their clash against Golden Arrows this weekend, the former AmaZulu player has explained how he recovered his form.
“What I can say is that as a player if you are not playing you know you have to work hard at training and wait for your chance again,” Sithebe told the media.
“I was always in the match-day squad, though I was not starting. But then coach kept saying if I can do what I do best, I can regain my confidence.
“When I was introduced against Mamelodi Sundowns, obviously I was reading the game from the bench, I realized how I can help the team. I saw that if I can build up and communicate, I can be myself.”
