Oldies must va­cate lower leagues


Our foot­ball will con­tinue go­ing nowhere if we keep em­ploy­ing this strat­egy of field­ing play­ers who failed to make an im­pact in the PSL. I have been watch­ing many teams play­ing in the NFD and most of them are us­ing these play­ers. Where is the young blood? Even in the Mot­sepe League, they are all over there too. We al­ways com­plain about not see­ing Bafana Bafana par­tic­i­pate in the World Cup or Af­con, and the blame is al­ways put on the coach, but the prob­lem or mis­takes are of­ten made by those who are lead­ing our foot­ball struc­tures. The use of these over-age play­ers is hold­ing back our foot­ball. These old play­ers must be chased out of these leagues I have men­tioned be­cause it’s killing our foot­ball. The Mbe­sumas, Mekoas, Paulses, Cha­ban­gus and Elasto Lun­gus etc. must go back to school in or­der to re­vive their ca­reers and not merely pack the NFD and Mot­sepe League teams be­cause these leagues must be used for devel­op­men­tal struc­tures.
