CAF not a minor competition

It is only here in South Africa where the domestic league is valued more that continental success. CAF competitions worth more than any domestic title. Everywhere in the world- making a mark in the continent is a priority. The Democratic Republic of Congo side- AS Vita has terminated Luc Eymael contract after failing to win the Caf Champions League. Eymael's position on the local league log standings didn't count much in his dismissal. Then Eymael came to South Africa- led Polokwane City to- a top eight finish. Which was the most successful campaign for Rise and Shine. Most of South African teams give coaches a mandate to ensure that the team finishes in the top eight. The PSL makes the best top ten leagues in the world but only financially. Premier Soccer League is competetive in terms of whose winning the league title. Any team can win the league here in Mzansi but are those teams competetive enough to win the Champions league? The best leagues have more teams participating in continental football. The fewer your teams are in continental competitions- the more mediocre is your league. Bafana Bafana fails to qualify for major tournaments because some of the players aren't exposed to the conditions faced outside of the country. This is a national crisis. We need a change in mindset.
