Mark Williams: The Technical Staff Got The Bafana Bafana Team Wrong

By Soccer Laduma - Sep 09, 2017 07:58 AM

Former Kaizer Chiefs striker, Mark Williams believes in his opinion that the Bafana Bafana technical team got their team selection incorrect after suffering back-to-back defeats to Cape Verde.

The South African national team dimmed their chances of qualifying for the prestigious FIFA World Cup set to take place next year, 2018 in Russia, after suffering defeat to Cape Verde in the qualifiers.

Speaking to the Siya crew, Williams believes that the technical team could have gone with a better line-up on Tuesday, September 05, implying that fielding the likes of Percy Tau sooner in the game, may have given team more attacking prowess.

“I couldn’t understand, if we wanted to go for a win we have to play. Technically, I think we got it wrong, but, as a coach sometimes, you will figure it out. Cape Verde was very smart, they outsmarted us technically,” the Bafana legend told the Siya crew.

“For me, if Dolly played on the one side, put Percy on the other side and attack. I think the coach got the technical approach wrong.”

It was a very disappointing game, you have 10 minutes left. You bring on Andile Jali before Tau, it didn’t make sense to me. I just think he got it wrong, in my opinion. The technical staff got it wrong with the team that they played. But, the question is, what is South Africa’s strengths? We are not physical players, we are very skilled,” he added.

With Bafana Bafana we can always blame the technical team for starting with the wrong team or players played in wrong positions.Fact our players don't want to dying for our national team and real no coach can win games with players who don't want to win for their country at all cost.For us to qualify for Russia we need a miracle now or we will watch the other teams play without our Bafana Bafana team in Russia

@Bucs84 Sorry member I've watched most of Wits games I've never seen Hlanti playing as a centre back even when Mkhwanazi got injured. Even @ Amazulu he was playing as a left back...

Shakes was much better. I also think SAFA is partly to be blamed;Jordan and Mumble have distroyed our national team. They must quit. The likes of Lucas Radebe, Phil Masinga and other legends must take over. How can someone who has never played soccer be a good administrator? Those two gentlemen are clueless . They must give other people chance because they have failed this country.

This is Baxter's style of play, he believe only on the physical strong, toll kind of players, to prove that look at the likes of Brock, Grobler,Gold etc, so about Jali, Erasmas,serero n all that short and young player's in Baxter they will always be the second best or even third best

They were playing like headless chickens ,dolly didn't know where he is playing on the field.. Why Baxter never start with Erasmus, and leave manyama out coz you can see that his concentration is now overseas... Hlanti is not an attacking left back.... He played most as a central defender at wits...... I think we got it all wrong.... Good bye Russia 2018...
