Naive PSL clubs refuse to see the light

Cape Town - Ted Dumitru is desperate for South African football to turn the corner but believes the PSL’s transfer merry-go-round is a major obstacle in order for that to progress.

Dumitru is clear that the ‘silly season’, where clubs desperately look for good deals on an experienced professionals, causes a media frenzy which actually blinds those involved in the game to the fact the country’s football is stagnating.    

“What makes the game progress is not the recycling of old and tested players,” the ex-Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana coach insists.

“Today you need to have an infusion of younger, more enterprising, more skillful and more dynamic players.

“Because of that reason I am not bothered about who the clubs are signing, who is available . . . the merry-go-round and so forth.

“It is very naive and unfortunately the media is not interested enough to realise that this cycle is not going to take the PSL and national teams to a higher level.”
