SAFA Must Take The Blame


The South African Football Association needs to put a proper development system for young players in place so that they can put the country on the map in the coming years. But do they really care about the country's football development?



This comes after both Banyan Banyana and the under23s were sent packing in the first round of the Rio 2016 Olympics in brazil. Their elimination has no doubt, disappointed the nation.



Again this takes us back to the drawing board, and it indicates that some things need to be done adequately, starting with the SAFA’s cabinet. Thereafter proper development structures need to be acquired. Then the entire nation can have true hopes when it comes to big competitions, unlike now where the nation can't be proud with their own team.



Honestly, our national soccer is the only major sporting code that is letting country down, compared to Rugby and Cricket, which also poses a lot questions to SAFA, on whether they getting it all wrong with the soccer teams.



Having said that, where do you think SAFA is getting it wrong, and what do you think is needed to transform our soccer teams?
