Safa must retain Parreira

PRIDE is the downfall of all empires, quality can never truly have a price and when in need acceptance is the base for building strong structures.

PRIDE is the downfall of all empires, quality can never truly have a price and when in need acceptance is the base for building strong structures.

South Africa and Bafana Bafana need Carlos Alberto Parreira, pictured, at the moment, maybe until Afcon 2012 or even Brazil 2014.

Mistakes shape us into better people. We learn, acknowledge and then move on stronger and wiser.

The World Cup taught us a lot. Now we have to live up to our true potential and Parreira is a worthy person to lead SA.

The players know him and believe in him. He knows and understands our football. He has the respect and support of Safa. The vision is there and he has faith in overseas or local-based players.

The man must be given a chance to mould SA into a world beater.

To Pitso Mosimane or Gavin Hunt, your time will come to coach Bafana. To get Safa to respect local coaches is work in progress. You can ask Shakes Mashaba and Clive Barker.

All other local coaches must do their jobs and give Bafana good quality strikers. Parreira is here to coach. Parreira must be retained, finish and klaar!
