South Africa coach Molefi Ntseki has said his focus is on studying every Mzansi player ahead of considering Gaston Sirino.
Pitso Mosimane caught countrywide attention when he suggested Sirino could be a needed addition when the Uruguayan soon acquires his South African citizenship.
"My approach for now is to give every South African a fair chance, and I think I'm doing exactly that," Ntseki said via Kick Off.
"Giving every South African a chance, you should be able to say I've profiled every SA player and in this position we can't get anybody who will give us a different dimension for us to start winning games.
"When that time comes, I will be able to give a report about what we are currently doing.
Ntseki added to say that Mosimane’s suggestion is no different to any other local coach that believes one of their players could make a difference at national level.
"So I think it's a feeling from any coach who feels he can be of help to the national team to maybe recommend a player to the national team."
"We really appreciate their help, that's why we are having this club visit programme, because we want to force good relationships with the coaches and clubs, but any South African will be given that fair chance to play for Bafana Bafana.
"If we don't have the quality we are looking for and there's a foreign quality in the country, maybe we will have a look. If not, we are happy to look at South Africans only,” concluded the soft-spoken coach.
