Following advice he got from such personalities like Kaizer Chiefs boss Kaizer Motaung, his Amakhosi coach Steve Khompela, former Bafana Bafana great Doctor Khumalo and ex-Warriors and Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Esrom Nyandoro, Willard Katsande has had a change of heart and rescinded his decision to quit international football.
My chairman (Motaung) said son you need to go back and play for your country and it was the same message I got from my coach Steve Khompela, Esrom and Doctor Khumalo. Coach Pasuwa told me that I still had a lot to offer to the national team. Some fans have also come to me and said they would not forgive me if I turned my back on the team and it has been the same story with my family. So, I have resolved that I will try my best to help my country to qualify for the 2019 tournament and those qualifiers will be my last piece of action before I retire.
