Bafana Bafana coach Hugo Broos' management skills have been praised and seen as a tool to help reclaim the glory days.
As it stands, it unclear on what will happen to South Africa about Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup due to pending case raised by SAFA after the poor officiating in their 1-0 loss to Ghana on Sunday, but Bafana Bafana legend mark Fish has praised the team and the coach for their brave fight.
"I think he is doing well and players are doing extremely well, I'm very impressed with the coach throughout the qualifiers," Fish told the Siya crew.
Fish says Broos' management is something that the country needs, especially because he tries to make sure they live a certain lifestyle that can protect them off the field too.
"He has been taking about things we've been wanting to hear from national team coach, not even about on the field issues, the reality of life and how players should live," he continued.
"Like when he spoke about players having different girlfriends, he is getting into players' heads on and off the field as well, if a coach does that, he creates a national team that will see players respecting the flag."
With the way they've been playing, Fish expects this current generation to emulate the class of 96 and end trophy drought.
"Let's have a team that qualifies for everything and win African Cup of Nations because we tired of talking about the class of 96. In this generation I'm proud of this and it gives us pride as a nation."
