Bafana needs Gordon Igesund urgently

14 June 2012, 11:44

First of all, watching Euro 2012 on TV is great. The football league season is in recess, and the best footballers are entertaining us.

I would strongly advise that our African Cup of Nations should be played at the same time as European Nations Cup, which is contested in June, after the domestic league.

Playing the AFCON in January is very disruptive to the African domestic leagues, which have to go into recess for 6 weeks. And the AFCON also happens in the heart of summer, which in my estimate contributes to lower levels of energy, and therefor diminished level of attractive, competitive football at the African competition, which is supposed to be the African Football showpiece.

Meanwhile, back to South African national football:  why Bafana Bafana won AFCON 1996, and how we can regain the glory of that era.

South African football was still innocent and honest when we won the AFCON in 1996. You can check that by the composition of the team, well balanced in every sense. Then after we won AFCON 1996, all the wannebee coaches started beating their chests claiming that they could do better than Clive Barker, and the entitlement thing that we should/must appoint a black coach. That is when SA football started going down on the very fast slippery slide. SA football doesn't need the politically correct suicide of denying coaches like Gordon Igesund and Gavin Hunt, among others, the opportunity to coach at national level. These coaches have been most loyal to SA football over their whole football careers. The sooner they are acknowledged for this, the sooner SA football will be restored to the levels of AFCON 1996.

My personal choice remains Gordon Igesund. He is the one coach who has proved over and over that he gain turn the fortunes of any team around within a very short space of time.

SAFA do the right thing.
