Muhsin Ertugral believes that young players in the Premier Soccer League dribble too much on the ball.

Maritzburg United suffered a 1-0 loss to Mamelodi Sundowns in an Absa Premiership clash midweek, with Ertugral pointing out why his side was unfortunate to get anything from the encounter.

“We have here a habit that we want to dribble the player twice, instead of getting to the front feet, this is a big problem that we need to work on in South African football,” Ertugral told the media. 

“Look, the youngster like Thabo Nodada, everyone speaks about him, we found him on the street and he has learnt under me that every single time, every single ball, gets to the front feet and you have an attacking format immediately. 

"Now, you have a youngster like (Siphesihle) Ndlovu, he doesn’t understand that he wants to turn every time around twice and then he is so long on the ball that with experienced players like that (at Sundowns)? 

“We need to (teach), our players here, especially the youngsters, that they don’t need to dribble the player twice, I call that – make a mark on the ball and we want to do that, the youngsters have been taught that way and when I see the TV, Kasi Flavour whatever you call that, the driving all around, but in the end the ball has to go there upfront, so this is a big problem that you need to change their mind and you need to convince them and that’s not easy,” he added.
