A new dawn awaits, the era that Mzanzi football strives for excellence and inspires greatness. We are not responsible for the sins of our father (SAFA), and should not be influenced by them to corrupt likewise, but learn from their mistakes.
Remember Brisbane 2000/09/17? A glimpse for the world to see that South Africa can dominate. Amaglug-glug produced a major upset, shocking Brazil 3-1. Benni McCarthy, Quinton Fortune, and co. defeated an outfit boasting Lucio and Ronaldinho who went on to win the 2002 Fifa World Cup. Why then haven't we become a force to be reckoned with?
That is because our football is politically run and politics brings corruption, greed and the like. We will only elevate to greatness when the likes of Lucas Radebe and Brian Baloyi become President of SAFA and Chairman of the PSL, imagine the greatness that such legends would inspire within the organisation and on the field of play. After all, we live in a world of cause and effect, the drive of the leaders of SAFA and PSL are reflected by Bafana Bafana on the field.
We need to use tools such as social media to drive out those hindering our growth and development, because the intention of those running our football is to siphon millions intended for development, and what we need is a SAFA managed by footballers and our footballers are in need of a voice that will open doors of administrative opportunities for when they retire.
We are that voice.
