Me­dia can help hon­our our soc­cer leg­ends

CityPress - - Sport - James Chi­umya via email

I com­mend you for your col­umn Press­ing Is­sues (City Press, July 16 2017) re­gard­ing the recog­ni­tion of soc­cer leg­ends.

What you have writ­ten about our he­roes of yes­ter­year is so true. We do need a plat­form where our for­mer foot­ball greats can be hon­oured and re­mem­bered.

As you have raised this is­sue and are in the me­dia space, I have a sug­ges­tion for you

I sug­gest that you cre­ate a weekly fea­ture in your pa­per where you fea­ture a for­mer great pro­fes­sional soc­cer player in South Africa.

In ad­di­tion, be­ing the knowl­edge­able sports writer you are, I sug­gest you rope in new and younger jour­nal­ists for the fea­ture so that they learn our rich soc­cer his­tory.

By do­ing this, you won’t have them ask­ing you ques­tions about who is this per­son or that per­son.

The me­dia is a pow­er­ful tool and I be­lieve that this will help keep the leg­ends in our minds.
