'Local Coaches Don't Develop Properly'

We continue to talk to talented local author and passionate supporter Molifi Tshabalala, who wrote a book called Thoughts of an Ordinary Citizen. He has been sharing bits of it with us, and today he speaks through the issue of local coaches compared to foreign coaches.

"First, one sees a player who cannot sweep in a decent cross every match and wonders whether his coach has not identified and worked on this weakness. Usually, the coach should analyse his player's individual performances, identify areas that need improvement, and then work on them at a training session.

"Second, Kaizer Chiefs assistant head coach Doctor Khumalo exemplifies how our local coaches are not player-developers. He has been with the club's youth development, yet he has not developed a word-class player, as former Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper coach Rainer Dinkerlacker had done with Khune, who is among the best goalkeepers in the world, with his modern-day goalkeeping techniques. The same can be said about Khumalo's Orlando Pirates counterpart and friend, Teboho Moloi.

"Third, when Mpumalanga head coach Muhsin Ertugral first came to Kaizer Chiefs, he developed and built his team around Patrick Mbuthu. Indeed, Mbuthu became the team's spinal cord. However, ill-discipline curtailed his promising career.

"Baxter also developed and built Kaizer Chiefs around Parker. He also developed Willard Katsande into one of the best midfielders in the PSL. Before his arrival, Katsande, who did not make the grade at Ajax Cape Town before joining Kaizer Chiefs, played second fiddle to his Zimbabwean compatriot, Tinashe Nengomasha." – Molifi Tshabalala
