Yesterday's announcement by the PSL that it was gearing itself to appoint a black boss in 2010 is welcome - though it will probably draw mixed reactions.

That the PSL has heeded public criticism over its current appointment and crafted a succession plan that would culminate in a black incumbent in the next two years, is commendable.

Harping on the criticism would only contribute to an air of negativity around local soccer.What is important now is that a positive outcome has emerged from the public outcry.
