Media can help honour our soccer legends
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.
