There is nothing South Africa can do to stop Carlos Alberto Parreira from leaving this country.
Finding a new coach will not be a problem. The only problem is whether the new coach will be given support, so he can prove himself.
When Parreira came to South Africa people did not want to give him a chance, now he is leaving and people act like they cared about him and his coaching methods. Safa must just find a new coach and as the nation we must accept him and support him.
But why did Safa ask Parreira to recommend the coach? It seems Safa do not trust themselves. Do we really need a Brazilian coach for Bafana?
