Speaking to Off The Pitch With TK, the 'Juju-Man' said:

"There was a game we played at Mbombela Stadium. I came on in the second half. We were playing SuperSport United. I helped create the equaliser for Lennox Bacela and created a lot of opportunities in changing the game. After the game, Floyd said 'this is the Juju I know'."

Mbuyane said he responded that Mbele and Tshabalala were actually the ones who didn't want him to play.

"You and Bra Stan. You and him don't want me to play. I didn't even play in the [2013 MTN8] final. [Coach] Roger de Sa said that even if he wants me to put me in..."

This is not the first time that the duo of Mbele and Tshabalala have been accused of having a hand in team selections, with Goal having published an article on these claims previously.
