We find ourselves in an interesting position this season in that most of our coaches are home-brewed, born and bred. So what is better for us in terms of moving our football forward – do we rely on the technical know-how and experience of a foreign coach, or should we put our faith in a local coach who respects our footballing tradition?
"Sometimes local coaches are jealous. A foreign coach does not care where you come from or which religion you are," Soccer Laduma website user jujubhaka suggested.
The logic here is that a lot of local coaches have been around long enough to develop grievances that may be unprofessional. A good example of this is Shakes Mashaba's refusal to call up a star player like Kermit Erasmus due to alleged personal grievances.
However, there is another side to this argument, according to SL user Matome_Kay.
"Foreign coaches mainly come here to destroy our players," he said.
"Only a few foreign coaches ever respected our players for who they are."
He argued that the likes of Steve Lekoelea, Joseph Makhanya and Emmanuel "Scara" Ngobese had their careers stunted by foreign coaches who didn't appreciate their unique style.
"Foreign coaches destroyed these guys' careers by trying to turn them into robots," he added.
"For me, Ruud Krol, Muhsin Ertugral and Ted Dumitru are the only ones who appreciate and respect local talent.
"Local coaches deserve more respect than they are getting."
Do you think there is any space for foreign coaches in our local game? Do they do more harm than good?
