New Bafana Coach

19 June 2014, 07:00
South African Football lacks two things, which i believe has led to our downfall time and time again. These two things are 1. An Identity and 2. Goals.

I believe these things go hand in hand to some degree. Here in South Africa we have a vast number of different coaches from various different places in the world and all of them come with an understanding of the way their country plays the game and the strengths of their people.

This has led to our own footballers often playing in teams who's tactics do not necessarily suite their individual strengths. For example, South Africans are generally speaking, not the tallest or strongest of men. We do, however, make up for that in pace and dribbling ability. Yet, so often when watching a PSL match or a Bafana game, I see the ball being "hoofed" up field, into the box or crossed. This does not play into the natural strengths of our South African players.

So please, to coaches all over South Africa, teach your players to play the ball on the ground first! Teach them how to play that "killer pass" known, as a through ball. Encourage them to play fast, short passes and to work hard to keep possession! 

I believe that if Bafana Bafana learn to play with this philosophy, it will play into their strengths, and we may just become world beaters again!
