The City skipper says Ngoma is one of the best players in the PSL this season, and his time to don the national team will come.

Cape Town City skipper Lebogang Manyama believes teammate Aubrey Ngoma’s chance of being called up for the national team is nearly there after he was snubbed for the recent friendly games against Guinea-Bissau and Angola.

Both Manyama and Ngoma have been on top form for the Citizens, scoring 16 goals, making 18 assists between them and helping the team to clinch the Telkom Knockout cup, and they are currently on top of the Absa Premiership league table. However, only the City skipper was called up for national duty for the two friendly games.

“Obviously, Aubrey and I are close, I sent him a message, but he is a big boy. He has gone through a lot already in football, he knows how to take such things in a positive way. His chance is very near, I think he is one of the best players in the PSL this season,” said the midfielder.

Manyama made his debut for Bafana during the 3-1 victory over Guinea-Bissau after coming on as a second-half substitute.
