The problem with Bafana Bafana

21 January 2014, 07:12
The problem with our football is that the administrators in charge of football want a quick fix for the problem. And they think that the solution to the problem is constantly changing coaches at the top. If they only care to take a hard look they will realise that not even world cup winning Brazilian coach Carlos Alberto Parreira, at an obscene salary of R1.8 Million could make Bafana play better. The problem is much more deeply entrenched than just changing coaches. The solution lies in strengthening our junior age group structures. You can't expect players to be successful at senior level when your Under 17, Under 20 and Under 23 teams aren't featuring in any international competition. Football should also learn from rugby and cricket, and introduce schools football tournaments like Craven Week and the Khaya Majola Week which form a strong foundation for development. Another critical area for development is for SAFA to set up coaching structures in every football district. We have too many uncertified coaches who insist on coaching on past experience. This is dangerous for our football. While the basics of football remains the same, the technical and scientific aspects of the game have moved on in leaps and bounds.So yes, we can continue blaming the players and the coach for the mediocre performances, and we can continue looking for the quickfix, but the situation will never improve until we knuckle down for the medium to long term solution of putting solid development structures in place at the junior level of our football.

The war crimes in Gaza

Israel’s conduct is morally and lawfully indefensible. I especially believe that this current Israeli regime is a law onto itself - a runaway train. They should be hauled before a war crimes tribunal. Read more...
