Chansa Disappointed In Sandilands But Wants Him For Bucs V Chippa

Francis Chansa Talks Orlando Pirates’ Goalkeeping Options

By Masebe Qina - Aug 08, 2018 01:31 PM

Former Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Francis Chansa would like to see Wayne Sandilands getting another chance in goals for the Buccaneers in their match against Chippa United tonight.

Having dropped two points in their opening match of the 2018/19 season which ended 1-1 against Highlands Park on the weekend, the Soweto giants have travelled to the Nelson Mandela Bay for their second match of the campaign against the Chilli Boys.

Against the Lions of the North of Saturday, Sandilands made a horrible mistake by miskicking the ball while trying to clear a back pass from Gladwin Shitolo which ended up rolling into the back of the net for the newly promoted side's goal. 

“I am not against any of the goalkeepers at Pirates. I don’t have a problem with (Brilliant) Khuzwayo and I don’t have a problem with any goalkeeper at the club. The problem (is) I have is with the goalkeeping training sessions at the club. What kind of training sessions are they giving to goalkeepers at Pirates? What I know is that any goalkeeper trainer for Pirates needs to be very focused on giving the training sessions to the team’s goalkeepers.

"Playing for Pirates is not like playing for any Manga-Manga (dodgy) team from just anywhere, it is a big team in Africa. A goalkeeper coach needs to be focused on his work with the goalkeepers. Also, goalkeepers need to communicate wisely with the defence and have to be alert, always. A goalkeeper coach needs to work on the psychological aspect of the goalkeepers for them to enjoy his training methods. I’m not against Khuzwayo or Sandilands, but for me (Siyabonga) Mpontshane is an experienced goalkeeper and so is (Jackson) Mabokgwane,” said Chansa. 

“Sandilands is a good goalkeeper and it’s just unfortunate he made that mistake. But in football all over the world mistakes like that do happen. I was so happy to see Happy Jele and other Pirates players trying to lift him (Sandilands) up. Things like that can kill a player psychologically,” added the former goalkeeper. 

Mpontshane deputised for Sandilands at the weekend while Khuzwayo has been recovering from injury and Chansa says the former Mamelodi Sundowns shot-stopper should start in goals again against Chippa.  

“I hope he’s going to be selected to play again. I hope Sandilands will play again today. I hope they have spoken to him about the mistake he made and explained that those things happen all over the world. He’s not the first goalkeeper to make the kind of mistake he made. We were watching the World Cup not long ago and we saw those kinds of mistakes being committed," said the Congolese. 

“But with Sandilands, you could see the mistake happened due to lack of concentration. As an experienced goalkeeper that he is, I was disappointed with Sandilands’ concentration and positioning. You cannot stand in your line while anticipating a backward pass or be watching your defence all in front of you. You cannot move backwards in that kind of a situation. You are supposed to attack the ball when the pass is played to you for you to be able to control the ball, or just kick the ball to the corner or to the direction it is coming from and then shout to your defenders, ‘Why are you doing this?’ But all of that should start with the goalkeeper coach.

"He is the one who should understand his goalkeepers. He should understand if this one is old and not a youngster anymore, and cannot learn anything anymore or that one is that and that. Each and every player, as long as they are on that field, you have a coach who is being paid a lot of money to coach you. A goalkeeper coach should always polish his goalkeeper before the game. They are human beings and can make mistakes irrespective of how experienced they are. We can all make mistakes. We have seen silly mistakes from goalkeepers, with others beaten from long range, while others cannot put the eye on the ball. I have not been at Pirates’ training sessions to see how their goalkeepers train, but I am not happy with goalkeeper training at the club. The team has very experienced goalkeepers,” concluded the 43-year-old who himself is a qualified goalkeeper coach.

Sanderland is washed up and useless keeper, it was wrong of pirates technical team to have prefered him over Mpontshane. Mpontshi is far better than this guy

@Bucsfever16, I concur mate. I am just pleading with builders faithfools to give the player a break. Criticising him this much may cause harm than good, may destroy him.

We don't need amateur keeper in PE today or forever.Sandilands fooled us against Sundowns his team and now Highlands who want him he must go to hell.Bucs supporters must be there today to chase him away if he is there.These coaches must respect Pirates and supporters.This team is not for trialists.We are watching them as they always field amateur players while we need points to win the league.

Hayi Chansa must go submit his CV for the goalkeeper coach position finish and klarr not for him to be blaming the goalkeeper coaching department for such an error... Sandilands is way too experienced to commit such murder...he killed us there that's why I call it murder... Its expected of young Felipe Ovonno to commit such a mistake not a seasoned Wayne

Sandile will produce a clean sheet today and will be in the starting 11, Chippa will not come close to him. He is better than Khune who conceded 3 goals

@setlaboswana : the ball did swerve a bit I agree Mate,but Sandilands' problem is that he tried to kick the ball with a left foot when he actually should have cleared it with his right foot.
