Being the bold figure that he is, Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane recently stated that he wants no players in his team dancing on the ball or doing any "shibobos". "I want goals" is the point he made after his team ruthlessly put Free State Stars to the sword in a 6-1 rout in the Telkom Knockout this past weekend.
Can shibobos or any form of expressive football be just as important as scoring goals, though?
If you are using skills to outwit opponents, there must be an end product. Mosimane stressed that very point in saying, "What's the use of doing shibobos if you don't score goals?"
Take nothing away from "Jingles", he had every right to say that.
But, while coaches want purposeful football, fans want entertainment too.
It has been said the identity of South African football has been lost in recent years, following the influx of European coaches opting to ply their trade in this country.
The bulk of the players playing in the PSL today honed their skills in various kasi locations around South Africa. As the saying goes: "You can take me out of the ghetto, but you can't take the ghetto out of me."
That adage has held true for many stars, who play the game as if they've never left the location. Players like Thabo Rakhale, Masibusane Zongo, Reneilwe Letsholonyane and Keagan Dolly come to mind.
Many feel that such skilful players are held back by being restricted from playing expressive football. Fans also want to go home after a match knowing they were thoroughly entertained by their favourite players.
