Orlando Pirates midfielder Phillip Ndlondlo was ecstatic for teammate Miguel Timm, after it was announced that he has been called-up to the National team.
This will be Timm’s first international appearance, if he gets onto the pitch with the senior team. Timm has played for South Africa’s U-20 in 2011 in the African Cup of Nations, where Nigeria were crowned the Champions.
The 31-year-old defensive midfielder, who has quickly become a fan favorite upon his arrival at Pirates, has earned a national team call-up after his recent stunning performance at the Soweto giants.
Ndlondlo, who played together with Timm at Marumo Gallants, before they moved to the Sea Robbers in the previous transfer window, has explained why he thinks Bafana will benefit from his teammate.
“He’s a good player man, he’s also such a good human being and I think the national team will benefit from him,” Ndlondlo told ThisIsFootball.Africa.
“We talk a lot on how we should play, even at Gallants, we used to plan and communicate. We communicate what we are going to do and how to execute the coach’s instructions.
“We push each other, we encourage each other, so I think he will do all these in the Bafana Bafana squad, the team can benefit from him, he’s a good player.” Timm will be looking to showcase his talent when South Africa clash against Mozambique this evening at 20h00 in a friendly match at Mbombela Stadium.
