Williams Reveals Why PSL Teams Are Struggling To Score Goals

South African football fans have been crying out to see a more entertaining brand of football in the PSL, wanting to see more goals scored and more often.

 

Most Mzansi strikers are yet to prove just how clinical they can be in front of goal this season, having already missed several chances to find the back of the net, and creating a perception that PSL teams are ‘struggling’ to score goals.

Former Bafana Bafana striker, Mark Williams, believes that teams should have coaches to mentor strikers, just as they have for the goalkeeping and defensive departments.

“Why are we struggling to score goals? It is because we don’t have players that are consistent strikers,” Williams told the Siya crew. 

“I can say that I blame some of the coaches and I will tell you why I say that and you can quote it. They have goalkeeper coaches, defending coaches but they don't have striker coaches and they think strikers can just score week in and week out. It is a process, its something they need to work on.

“If the players can't work on it they have to make sure that they get ex-players that scored goals on a regular basis like Jerry Skhosana, Mark Williams, Phil Masinga, Benni McCarthy. If I didn’t score in two weeks I was very upset. 

“And now coaches say – Ja well he is doing a job, he is a creating. But, that is not his job, his job is not creating as a striker, his job is to score goals!” he added.
