Doc: Are We Questioning The Current Players’ Attitude On The Field?

Over the past weekend, Bafana Bafana failed to take advantage of playing on home turf as Stuart Baxter’s charges went on to secure a point in their Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Libya.

The match ended in a 0-0 draw, which resulted in four points being collected from two games, as they are placed second in Group E and are under pressure to win their next encounter. 

SportPesa ambassador, Doctor Khumalo expressed his view on the match and pointed out the disappointment that many supporters are feeling about not collecting maximum points at home.

“There are so many mixed feelings about Bafana Bafana’s goalless draw against Libya and that, on its own, goes to show that we don’t see things the same way. The disappointment of not getting maximum points at home is slowly getting people to start comparing different generations. 

“We are talking different eras, different players and different mentalities. I’m not only talking about the players’ mentality but the supporters’ too – it is different now to what it was 20 years ago, for instance. We used to have everyone behind our national team. If you didn’t attend the game, you’d be glued to your television set because you didn’t want to miss out on the game.

“We had different players than now, based on the history and the type of players that were at our disposal. Are we questioning the current players’ attitude on the field? Before you answer that question, please remember that the very same players from the past, who are seen now as better than the current, also went through the same rough patch that our current team is going through.”
