Bafana Bafana head coach Molefi Ntseki has opened up about the postponement of the Africa Cup of Nations.
Earlier in the week, the Confederation of African (CAF) Football confirmed that the next AFCON which was scheduled for next year in Cameroon has been rescheduled for January 2022, with the dates for the final tournament and remaining matches of the qualifiers set to be communicated at a later stage.
“To be honest we have no control because we are not medical personnel, but we are technical people so we all act on the advice of health authorities. This does not come as a surprise because if you think about it, what is happening in South Africa is a clear indication of the real situation – there is currently no football,” said Ntseki, and speaking to SAFA Media.
“This goes to show just how difficult it is for everyone, especially on the continent. We know that some leagues around the world are on the go, but they had to go through stringent measures to be where they are today – the same will apply with us. We are all aware that the Minister of Sport and Recreation in South Africa said clubs can start in small groups, but to date there hasn’t been any team on the field – except Cape Town City who had a taste of that yesterday,” the coach added.
