South Africans are a proud nation, South Africans are winners and South Africans believe in Madiba magic, all of which seem to be lacking when one looks at the national football team.
‘Bafana Bafana’ as they are fondly known, seem to be missing a winning formula. They are often making headlines for their losing streaks, constant draws with B-Grade teams and the endless changing face of the coach of the national side.
At its best the South African national squad was rated number sixteen in The International Federation of Association Football rankings in 1996. Since then their average has hovered in and around the 60’s mark and has left many of their South African fans yearning for the soccer heroes of yesteryear.
The organisation appointed as the guardian of football in the country, the South African Football Association, has often been fingered as an institution characterised by failed management and internal conflict, as well as the main source of the country’s footballing woes.
The word “development” seems to bring up a lot of emotions… it almost looks like this is where the country’s problems lie. Many young children are still playing on substandard fields without proper equipment and guidance. Khoza’s comments on football at school level also reflect this issue, his concerns are that it seems as though soccer is popular until about Grade 6 and is then pushed to the sidelines to make way for its two other popular contemporaries; cricket and rugby.
Asked what could be done to help school level soccer his responses mainly focus on a need for communication, accountability and transparency in the way school soccer is run and he, like the PSL’s chairman, emphasises the need for trained coaches to be in charge of football at schools level. “Some of the teachers left in charge of the learners have never played a sport in their lives, how can they be responsible for the country’s future strikers?” he asks. Madia says SASFA needs to work on its structure, he believes as it stands, schools in the townships suffer because of a badly run sports body. He also touches on the budget, saying there’s no clarity as to what budget is given to schools and says if at the start of the academic year they could lay out their budget, plans for the year and fixtures that would make a great difference. His parting words, “In a perfect world, SASFA would make sure all kids play on the same quality grounds, guided by quality coaches with a clear view of where they could end up if they focus on their game”.
