SA soccer in crisis?

Johannesburg - Ajax Cape Town and Moroka Swallows played to a goal-less draw in their MTN 8 semi-final first leg match at Athlone Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Both coaches Foppe de Haan and Rainer Zobel blamed the lack of goals in the PSL on the development crisis in South Africa.

“It is not our job but a development problem in South Africa. For instance I can’t tell a player how to pass and shoot at this level. The strikers here lack shooting technique. Before the World Cup it was promised that money will be pumped into development and now that the World Cup is gone, where is the money. People at SAFA and the PSL are fighting about who is the boss instead,” explained Zobel.

The Urban Warriors' mentor also had something to say on the problem which does not only affect the PSL but the South African national team Bafana Bafana, “There is a lack of intelligence and quality. (At Ajax) we have a really good team but we lack experience. We have talented midfielders but they sometimes keep the ball for too long,” concluded De Haan.       

Last week another foreign coach, Ruud Krol of Orlando Pirates, lamented the development of PSL players who struggle to find the back of the net at times.
