Cape Town - Kaizer Motaung has blamed Bafana Bafana's failure to kick on from their '90's success on the constant "chopping and changing" that has plagued the national side.

KickOff.com report that the Kaizer Chiefs chairman believes that Shakes Mashaba's long-term vision should be implemented in local football.

Motaung believes that the national team "could have done better if we didn’t change so much" in reference to the 19 coaching changes since Clive Barker left his post in 1997.

The Amakhosi boss is optimistic of the national team's future and has thrown his support behind Shakes Mashaba. 

“Right now Shakes is thinking not about today, but about tomorrow and further into the future." said Motaung.

"If we thought like that all the time, we would be very far by now."

Motaung was less complimentary of Mashaba's predecessor's methods. The current SuperSport United coach “didn’t care about tomorrow” according to Motaung.

Motaung joined the chorus of those who warn against of trying to chase "instant success" and labelled it "a very bad phenomenon in South Africa.”
