'Black Coaches Think That We Are Jealous Of Them’

Former Orlando Pirates defender Tonic Chabalala has hinted about his interest in coaching. 

Since parting ways with Pirates in 2008, after spending four years at the Soweto giants, the former centre-back went on to play for Thanda Royal Zulu before returning to Dynamos – the club he played for before joining the Buccaneers in 2004.

Chabalala says he is backing local coaches to succeed in their careers in Mzansi’s topflight, although he has some concerns.   

“I don’t have a problem with black coaches, I have been there and I know. Black coaches think that we (former professional footballers) are jealous of them that they are earning a lot of money and are driving nice cars,” said Chabalala.

“But we can’t run ignore the fact that some black coaches might not go too far in their careers because of favouritism. Coaches should select players based on their performance and not preference. Yes, as a coach you can like a certain player and want to select him more often, but at the end of the day you are the one who is going to leave the club (if the results don’t go your way). Coaching is not easy and I know that, but I wish that coaches could always play players based on merit,” he told the Siya crew.
