JOHANNESBURG - It looks like May Mahlangu may have just shot himself in the boot.

He has decided to shun Bafana and new coach Shakes Mashaba for this weekend’s Afcon action.

The midfield maestro was meant to lead Bafana’s attack but he has decided that his legs have had enough.

The new man in charge of  Bafana is not shaken and has stirred up his troops ahead of the clash with Sudan.

Mashaba brought his Bafana pride to the fore, saying he will only work with players who are "patriotic".

As is the case with any sporting hero, the Twitterati have taken it upon themselves to create a new saying… 

Being “maymahlangu” has now emerged as the new way of saying you could not be bothered or you are even too tired to be bothered in the first place.
