Cape Town City coach Benni McCarthy has predicted a brighter future for his star midfielder Thabo Nodada.
The KwaZulu-Natal-born midfielder’s contributions earned him a Bafana Bafana call-up for the back-to-back Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Seychelles this month.
McCarthy believes that Nodada is destined for Europe.
“There’s something about these Zulu boys. Their mentality and work ethic [are] second to none. He’s got talent, but he works effortlessly,” McCarthy said.
“When you put in that amount of work to improve yourself and better yourself, the only way is up. No one can be able to keep a player like that down.”
Nodada helped City lift the MTN8 last week against SuperSport United with a top-class performance.
“Nodada is a very intelligent boy. He knows what he wants. He always asks me a lot of questions, which is tiring. But it shows. His performances speak volumes.”
McCarthy continued to say Nodada has a future abroad.
“Believe you me, the kid is not going to play in South Africa for so long. He will go abroad because he is one South African player I can vouch for to make it in Europe.”
Nodada will compete with the likes of Hlompho Kekana, Kamohelo Mokotjo and Dean Furman in the middle of the park for Bafana.
“I’m delighted for him to get the Bafana call-up, but maybe it’s a little late because the likes of him and Siphesihle Ndlovu have been on form since the end of last year,” McCarthy concluded.
