Bidvest Wits defender Bongani Khumalo says there's quality in the Clever Boys side and playing for coach Gavin Hunt means winning trophies is a must.

The former Tottenham Hotspur and SuperSport United defender tells that there's healthy competition at the back.

Khumalo competes for a place alongside Buhle Mkhwanazi, Markus Lecki and skipper Thulani Hlatshwayo, and Khumalo claims that anyone can play based on their qualities.

“If you look at the back, Markus Lekki, me and Buhle as well as Tyson, anyone can play any day and the coach can tell you that,” said Khumalo.

“There's good competition and good quality, and with many games coming up I think people have noticed that there's rotation.

“When you get your chance to play it's expected that you must do well and in terms of the back four, any centre back can come in and do the job.”


Talking about the quality in their team and the pressure to turn that into trophies, 'Model C' adds that they need a bit of luck.

“It's always expected when you play for a coach like Gavin to produce the quality in terms of results and silverware,” adds the ex-Bafana Bafana skipper.

“Since I've been here, the quality of the players has been out there for sure, like the (Kaizer) Chiefs game, we dominated the match.

“We dominated the game but couldn't get the points and it's something we must work on and pray that we get a bit of luck.

“More often than not we get what we deserve in terms of positive results, but I believe there's a great future for this club.”

The Students will meet Bloemfontein Celtic on Friday night at Bidvest Stadium for their Nedbank Cup Last 32 encounter.
