Talent aplenty

TODAY is the start of what promises to be one of the most exciting PSL seasons in a long time.

The fact that many local players fancy a place in the team to represent South Africa in the 2010 Fifa World Cup should ensure that our players pull up their socks.

We expect that all those talented players who could not muster the necessary motivation to live up their true potential - and heavens know we have plenty of such creatures - will now see reason to fulfil their talents.

We were thus happy to see undoubted talent Mbulelo Mabizela take his place in the Platinum Stars team that beat Mamelodi Sundowns in the semifinals of the Charity Cup.

We hope that the revival of "OJ" is a positive omen for the fortunes of the Bafana team and of local football.
