SA soccer is at the crossroads and as a lover of soccer I
wish our soccer bosses take the right path to lead us out of African soccer
dwarfdom if you like.
At a time when players of our beloved Bafana were
overlooked for the African best XI,there seems to be no better reality check
than this.We are giants in Africa no more,and as long as we don't export
players to the best leagues in Europe where they start week in and week out and
we fail to create the elusive reserve league and competitive youth structures,we
going nowhere slowly.
And while its going well with our domestic league in
terms of sponsorship deals etc you wonder who will drive change in oursoccer
to get us to a point where small teams like eg. Lesotho know they don't have a
chance against us.
For if we fail to plan long term and implement what's
needed to get us to the top,we are surely doomed for the minor league African teams who never qualify for anything.
