Yeye: There's No GK Crisis, We Need To Do Better

The goalkeeping department in South Africa has been a topic of discussion as many feel we are in crisis but Reneilwe Letsholonyane doesn't think there's anything to worry about.

With Itumeleng Khune in the twilight of his career, it has been a big challenge to find a replacement in the Bafana Bafana set-up, but Yeye feels there's nothing to worry about as he  believes there is enough talent.

"I don't understand when people say there's crisis, because there's always a goalkeeper in the national team. There are goalkeepers doing well in the PSL, so I don't see a crisis there," Yeye tells the media.

"Yes Itumeleng Khune has been struggling with injuries and lack of game-time but there's other goalkeepers like Ronwen Williams and now Bruce Bvuma who has been called up to Bafana Bafana." 

The former Bafana Bafana midfielder feels the only challenge is rushing players instead of giving them proper time to adjust. 

"We have goalkeepers, we just need to do our jobs by introducing them into national teams. I think it is all about giving them opportunities to grow. You can't see a player for three games and say he is ready. Allow him to grow and I feel some are rushed. 

"We need to protect them, allow them to adjust and prepare them for the bigger stages. It is all about helping them to be consistent."
