Wi­den the PSL coach­ing pool

Kick Off - - LETTERS -

It is quite a shame at how slowly the game and its method­ol­ogy is pro­gress­ing in the coun­try. Stu­art Bax­ter un­der­stands the brand of foot­ball that he wants and clearly wants more coaches that have been in­volved in Euro­pean foot­ball to take charge of clubs in the PSL so that the brand will be­come a more com­pet­i­tive one, chal­leng­ing for cups and qual­i­fy­ing for ma­jor tour­na­ments with­out hes­i­ta­tion. English­man Rob McDon­ald, one of the top pi­o­neer coaches of the early PSL days, is want­ing to come back into the coun­try to de­liver yet an­other suc­cess­ful stint, but is find­ing it dif­fi­cult to nail down a po­si­tion. What seems to be the prob­lem with South African clubs, or are they blinded by their own in­com­pe­tence? McDon­ald has a solid iden­tity and a good base for un­rav­el­ling suc­cess in the elite game to­day in this coun­try. Give him a chance! Wyn­d­ham Van Vu­uren, via email
