Mokoena weakest link

For the love of Bafana Bafana and the hopes of going further in the 2009 Confederations Cup and 2010 World Cup, somebody must advise coach Santana to drop Aaron Mokoena.

For the love of Bafana Bafana and the hopes of going further in the 2009 Confederations Cup and 2010 World Cup, somebody must advise coach Santana to drop Aaron Mokoena.

The same should also be done to Siyabonga Nkosi.

Our national team has suffered miserably playing Mokoena at the back - the guy is the weakest link in our team.

If you want to experience it yourself, just watch him play in Blackburn Rovers' colours. All he does is play the ball back with immediate effect to whoever passed him the ball irrespective of the colours he is wearing.

Though he is tall, I watched with disbelief when Cristiano Ronaldo headed the ball into Blackburn's net with Mokoena in front of him, and this is what he does in our national team.

Nkosi is too meek. The truth is he didn't even do anything at chiefs.

Also, why is Bernard Parker being played only as Nkosi's substitute?

The bottom line is Mokoena and Nkosi are not 2010 material.
