According to Soccer Laduma, Barker says that since the AFCON South Africa have not been producing any positive results.
“Results for Shakes have not been positive now since the
African Cup of Nations. I think now people will really start to question
Shakes’ mandate,” said Barker.
Barker also touched on the COSAFA Cup tournament which Bafana have been knocked out of and
questions the purpose of it if the best players are not made available.
“If the COSAFA Cup is meant to help in the development of
young players then perhaps it's serving it purpose, however the results of our
national team have been a point of concern,” Barker tells the crew.
“However, if a coach does not have his full strength side
then what is the point of the tournament. With that said, those called to do
the job should do the job for the national team.”
Meanwhile, Bafana open their AFCON qualifying campaign on
Saturday, June 13 with Mashaba yet to announce his squad selection.
