Morris: Football Has Turned Into A Money-Making Machine

Nasief Morris is back in the building, and has answered the rest of your questions! Today, he discusses his retirement plans and shares his thoughts on the clubs that are changing ownership.

When are you planning to retire? – Rafiki

Nasief Morris: Ha ha, football is in my blood! This is about the only thing that I have ever done and having played for so many years, it isn't so easy to just pack up. At the moment, playing for Milano United, I am trying to get the team promoted to the PSL and be a role model to the younger players. I did speak to the coach at the end of last season and I asked him if he thought that I still had something to offer him and the team, and he believes that I have more years left, so I am not ready to throw in the towel just yet.

What are you planning to do after ending your football career? – Mido93

NM: I recently started my coaching courses as it is something that I am looking forward to doing in the future. Another aspect that I am looking into doing is to help our younger players get opportunities at overseas clubs. I have a few friends over there and I would like to be the link to help them grow their football careers.

What's your take on this buying and selling of club statuses? Is it something you would consider if an opportunity availed itself? – LAPO_MOLEBATSI

NM: Nowadays, football has turned into a money-making machine. The negative part is that the clubs are doing this without the players' knowledge, and at the end of the day they are the ones who suffer from all the changes that take place. It's sad to see that football has turned into the owners just considering the money factor.

What are the highlights of your time with the national team? – Celine

NM: I think every single time that I represented my country was a highlight for me because you are given the opportunity to play for your national team. I missed out on a few of the major tournaments but those things happen in football, and I am grateful for the games that I did partake in.

What are your fondest memories of Morris?
