Khan: Shakes Has Made Many Changes

Farouk Khan has defended Shakes Mashaba, saying that his poor performance with Bafana Bafana is just a symptom of a larger problem.

Mashaba has come under scrutiny for his failure to guide South Africa to qualification for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations, and Khan believes the 66-year-old is still experimenting with the team, but should have an idea of what the finished product should be.

"If you look at Shakes, he's playing different combinations, moving forward to Vision 2022, and it's clear he's made many changes," Khan told Soccer Laduma.

"But, by now, he should have had an idea of who to use, and he changes that too often and he changes around the players."

However, Khan added that firing the former Black Leopards coach will not solve Bafana's poor performances in the long run.

"It's fine to hold him responsible. However, you need to look at the broader picture," he explained.

"You will realise that, due to the fact that we don't have proper systematic youth development, even if we blame Shakes, you can bring in another person. And he will follow the same cycle, even if we start to win, you will bring in someone who has short-term success, but that person will definitely have long-term failure if you don't put in the proper processes. It's inevitable."
