It is always upsetting to hear that great young talent was lost to football because we coaches fail to recognize and/or use South African players' skills, creativity and potential.
Such cases are endless and that's completely abnormal. Are we aware how many young players' life or dreams are shattered because we coaches do not know how to develop, train, motivate, guide, support, inspire or lead them?
How many of us feel guilty when we kick out from our clubs promising young players and replace them with imported mediocrity?
Where is our consciousness, knowledge and honesty when we demand the young players to change their nature and respect foreign football ideologies that our players cannot identify with?
Isn't that disgusting that some of us pretend to know - what actually we don't know - and teach others in those South African Football Association’s (SAFA) courses the wrong way to nurture South African talent so that more of that talent will be lost?
To me it's obvious that we don’t know what we are doing.
