Why Youth Development Is Crucial In The PSL – Reader’s Voice
Any nation that is serious about competing against the best in international football, will always take care of its youth development.
Many of the best footballers today, who have become household names, began showing their potential in youth tournaments.
It is important for our youth teams to qualify for and compete in such competitions if we entertain any hopes of having a strong Bafana Bafana team in the near future.
The great work done by Thabo Senong and his technical team, which includes Helman Mkhalele, should be applauded. By qualifying for the 2019 under 20 African Cup of Nations, our boys will be afforded an opportunity to play against the best that the continent has to offer.
Hopefully they will go all the way and qualify for the u/20 World Cup.
Do you think the focus of football in SA should be focused on the development structures?
