“It Was Embarrassing To See SA's Biggest Team Struggling Against Acornbush” – Reader’s Voice

After their 2-1 defeat in the hands of Komphela’s Chiefs, ABC Motsepe league side coach Macdonald Makhubedu criticised Kaizer Chiefs and express how worried is he about future of South African football and Bafana.

Acornbush United were reduced to 10 men in the 27th minute of their Nedbank last 16 clash against Amakhosi. But it was the 3rd tie side who draw the first blood, Komphela failed with his best first eleven which was dominated by experienced ex-Bafana and current Bafana stars such as Itumeleng Khune, Eric Mathoho, Lorenzo Gordinho, Bernard Parker and Siphiwe Tshabalala. There were also some international stars like Willard Katsande and Edmore Chirambadare in the line-up against Makhubedu’s third tier side.

It was very embarrassing to see the country's biggest team struggling against a man-down Motsepe league side, so we have to ask ourselves if these players are ready to compete against Africa's best? Can we put the nation’s hopes in them if they can't humiliate 10 amateurs?

 Yes, the third tie side lost the game, but maybe without that red card it would be a different story. Big teams around the world put lesser teams in their place with five, six, seven or eight goals. Our big teams must start to play like big teams.

Was Macdonald Makhubedu right about poor Chiefs performance? Should our big teams take the blame for Bafana’s failures? Did the red card help Chiefs against Acornbush?
