Success, but we need to do more
A JOB well done by Safa, the government, sponsors and everyone involved in making this world competition so successful, not forgetting the lovely, supportive South Africans.
This is our legacy as South Africans and we should be forever proud to be the first African country to host the most successful World Cup ever.
We did our bestto make it a success and books will be written after the tournament is over for the benefit of later generations.
A strong intervention by our government is needed, though, in the Safa board as they did with Sarfu, so that we can achieve the best and be in a respectful position in world rankings too.
Our government demanded that Sarfu have a certain number of blacks on its board as well as in the Mabakoboko team.
The same should happen in Safa, with more whites on its board and playing for Bafana Bafana. We need the rainbow nation in all our sports. Also review our sports minister.
Our country has world-class infrastructure and we have no excuse not to perform because we have the best league on the continent.
Serame Letsoaka is not the best in that position. He never won a major competition on the continent, except the good display with Amajita. I feel he needs more experience as a coach, not as a technical director. That was an absolutely poor appointment.
We can be competitive only if we appoint the right people and select players on merit. First. though, we need to thoroughly clean the Safa house.
