PSL's Big Guns Slammed For Slow Progress In Development!

Top-flight clubs have been slammed for slow progress in the development and promotion of players by Innocent ‘Ayobayo’ Mayoyo – the director and coach at Ayobayo Youth Academy which is based in Ekurhuleni.

Mayoyo, who is a former Orlando Pirates goalkeeper with 18 years of experience in Mzansi’s top-flight, is not satisfied with the small number of players who have come through from the youth ranks of the country’s top clubs in recent years.

“The country’s big clubs do not have concept about development. They don’t have a proper way of doing things in developing the players and that is why they always sign players from anywhere,” Mayoyo told the Siya crew.

Following his long and successful career, Mayoyo started coaching at Ajax Cape Town in their U15 team in 2003, while he also served as assistant coach of the U17 team before leaving the Mother City to go back home in Gauteng. 

Thulani Serero, Granwald Scott and Daylon Claasen are some of the players who the former shot-stopper worked with during the early stages of their careers.

“If there was a concept and philosophy, players would be growing in their clubs. These big clubs are not promoting players enough from their development. Where do the boys from their development end up? Instead of promoting more players from their development structures, the very same big clubs come to us local clubs to scout in the township,” said Mayoyo.
