Cape Town - Former Bafana Bafana international Daniel Mudau believes South African football has a major problem in terms of scoring goals, and solutions must be found.
The Absa Premiership is experiencing an unprecedented drought in terms of goals being scored and wins being recorded.
In the last 15 league matches, 12 have been draws while six have failed to produce goals.
As such, 'Mambush', who scored 108 Absa Premiership goals during his playing days for Mamelodi Sundowns, takes the view that the drought in front of goal has reached a crisis point.
"I think we have reached a crisis point and I am not sure how or when the situation is going to change," he told SowetanLIVE website.
"My observation is that we don't have quality out-and-out strikers like Raphael Chukwu‚ Jerry Sikhosana‚ Shaun Bartlett or Pollen Ndlanya, who used to stay in the box.
"Now‚ you have a situation where coaches are forced to convert midfielders into strikers and that is not an easy thing to do. It is difficult to convert a player into a new role but I want to challenge midfielders who have been converted to work hard.
"I don't know many players stay behind after training with 50 balls to practice target shooting‚ taking runs on and off the ball and jumping and heading inside the box. I don't think there are that many.
"Coaches can only do so much in trying to help the players fit into a new system but the rest depends on individual players to work hard and improve."
The leading scorers in the top flight so far are Baroka and Golden Arrows, who have both managed 16 goals in 12 matches, while the lowest is Maritzburg United with five in 10 outings.
