'We Must Compete For Bigger Things'

Former Bafana Bafana midfielder and PSL veteran Reneilwe Letsholonyane disagrees with the idea of changing everything at once in the Bafana Bafana team by new coach, Hugo Broos.

When the new coach was officially unveiled in the national set-up, one of his first comments was to overhaul the side, with the intention of bringing in more youth into the national team. 

Yeye, speaking with media in Durban during a Black Label event, says he is not entertaining the comment of rebuilding because the foundation in the Bafana Bafana was laid.

"Look I'm not gonna entertain that because all the coaches who have been coaching Bafana Bafana have been bringing youngsters and the process goes on and on. 

"When results don't come they fire the coach and the next one comes, and the same thing happens. Tell me about one coach that didnt bring in youngsters. For me, if you want to rebuild a house, you can't build one without a foundation. 

"The foundation has been laid a long time ago in this country and when things don't work out they start again with another rebuilding process. If a new coach comes in and has already being informed about about what has been happening in the national team, must not try to be a superhero and change everything." 

The former Chiefs midfielder says Bafana Bafana shouldn't be talking about rebuilding at this stage, the focus should be on winning. 

"You can't tell me all players who have represented the country are not doing well in their teams currently, so there's no way that every new coach brings new players. When are we going to be stable? We shouldn't be rebuilding, we must compete for bigger things," he added.
