Former goalkeeper Shu-Aib Walters says he is working hard to help produce Bafana Bafana goalkeepers of tomorrow.

The former Cape Town City shotstopper hung up his boots due to injury at the end of last season, while at Ajax Cape Town.

He subsequently set up a goalkeeping academy in Gauteng as he feels there is a lack of goalkeeper specialisation in the Premier Soccer League.

Walters wants to be able to provide top-quality keepers to Bafana coach Molefi Ntseki.

A number of clubs currently employ foreign shotstoppers and Walters is keen for this to change.

He told the Daily Sun: "It’s a big challenge, and not only for me but for the entire country, the PSL and NFD teams.

"Most of the PSL teams have foreign goalkeepers. Even when you go down to the NFD, you'll find that most of the teams are playing foreign goalkeepers.

"When are our goalkeepers going to be promoted to the PSL, and hopefully go overseas?"
