Bafana Bafana coach Molefi Ntseki is known as a man with inside knowledge of the workings of Bafana, but can he handle himself around a braai?
Ntseki joins a list of stars including former Bafana midfielders Doctor Khumalo and Teko Modise, and other sports personalities in the #CastleBraaiSeason campaign which started last weekend.
Fans know personalities such as Springbok players Lukhanyo Am, Makazole Mapimpi and Pieter-Steph Du Toit, and cricket stars Andile Phehlukwayo, Rassie van der Dussen and Beuran Hendricks for their abilities on the field, but now their skills on the grill are being put to the test in a braai-off.
The #CastleBraaiSeason campaign, which aims to reignite the braai culture post-lockdown, started last Saturday and will run until the end of October.
South Africans are encouraged to have a braai on the last Saturday of every month.
“The goal is to get South Africans to rediscover the joy of having a braai with Castle Lager and ease them back into this pastime by providing them with everything they need for this occasion at a convenient price,” said Castle Lager brand director Kudzi Mathabire.
While testing his skill on the fire, Ntseki will be pondering what’s next for Bafana, who are expected back in action next month with two friendly matches before resuming the 2022 Afcon qualifiers later in the year.
Bafana have not been in action since the beginning of the year, after their back-to-back Afcon qualifiers against São Tomé and Príncipe were postponed in March owing to the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic, which brought all sporting activities to a halt.
