🇿🇦🏃🏿‍♂️🇲🇼 Kapinga confirms wanting to play for SA instead of Malawi

Black Leopards rising star Lesedi Kapinga is eyeing a future with Bafana Bafana rather than the country of his grandparents Malawi.

The attacking midfielder was born and raised in Mzansi to Malawian grandparents and is yet to play for either national team.

Speaking soon after rumours of signing a pre-contract with Mamelodi Sundowns. The Rustenburg-born player sees very little possibilities of wearing the colours of Malawi.

"I don't know anything about that, but what would I be doing in Malawi?" Kapinga told Kick Off.

"They do have players there, even here in Mzansi you have players, but I will play here in South Africa, nowhere else.

"If I had to choose it would be Malawi and South Africa, but still, what would I be doing there as well? Because I grew up this side.

The 24-year-old further confirmed that even his parents are from South Africa: "My family is from Malawi, but the old generation is not the current one you see. So that's why I'm saying I won't go there, I will play here.

Kapinga joined Leopards from Limpopo lower division side Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila FC, while Sundowns nor Leopards are yet to confirmed his move to Chloorkop.

"No one is from Zambia in my family, they are from Malawi and that was the old generation, not my dad. My dad and mom are also from here."

"What I can tell you is, I will play," he declares. "If given a chance, I will play,” added Kapinga.
