DURBAN – Bafana Bafana midfielder Thulani “Cream” Serero has been banned from playing for the senior national team on a permanent basis.
This was confirmed by SA Football Association (Safa) chief executive Dennis Mumble on Tuesday in an exclusive interview with Independent Media from Oman.
Serero made headlines last year when he asked to be guaranteed a starting berth in two World Cup qualifiers against Senegal.
He struggled for game time under the leadership of new coach Stuart Baxter.
Serero was excluded when Bafana defeated Nigeria in the Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifier against Nigeria.
