Hlatshwayo: Of course I take it personally.

Thulani Hlatshwayo speaks out about his injury and his absence in a very crucial part of the 2015/16 season for Bidvest Wits.

“We were on track at one point in the season and only four points behind Sundowns, the squad was riddled with injuries, Phakamani, James, Papy and even myself. It definitely affects the squad when your key players are injured. As a team, we are disappointed. We knew we were a few points behind the number one spot. It was up to Mamelodi Sundowns to derail and Bidvest Wits wanted to make it interesting until the end. So there is definitely disappointment all round in the camp.”

“Coach Gavin and Jose told me that I should not be hard on myself but of course, I take not lifting a trophy personally.  I got injured at a very crucial time in the season. I personally feel that I was absent when the team needed me the most. As much as any player in the team I really really wanted to win the league and lift a trophy. As a team, we wanted to push Mamelodi Sundowns to the end and we lost that momentum.”

“The only thing we have to do now  in the new season is to focus on winning and taking the number one spot. We need to win Cups and if we start well in the MTN8 the team will most definitely have a good season.”
