'SA Women's Football Not Taken Seriously By SAFA'

As the Olympics draw to a close and we begin to welcome our various participants back home, speculation begins to fly regarding the future of our athletes and coaches. Today's discussion revolves around Banyana Banyana coach Vera Pauw.

There are questions surrounding the permanence of Pauw's position as coach of the SA women's national team, but these questions have been met with mostly opposition from the supporters. Many believe she is the right person to lead the side, and that it is the administration and lack of a professional women's league in South Africa that lets Banyana Banyana down.

"Let's be honest, the problem is not the coach. You can put Pep Guardiola in charge of Banyana as a coach; believe me, Banyana will still not beat any European countries. The fact is that SA women's football is not taken seriously by SAFA. The change must start at the SAFA office." – Mavrega32

"It's human indeed. She brought stability to the team. All that is needed, which should have been done long time ago, is competition, a girls' league to curtain-raise the PSL. She should be retained as coach." – Dangerous_when_provoked

"We have a good players in Banyana Banyana. What's needed is someone who can help these beautiful ladies with a well-run professional league. Mr Motsepe, help please." – thabanakhosi

It seems that this is a topic around which the supporters have a lot to add. Perhaps a professional league is just what is needed to take Banyana Banyana to new heights.

What do you think lies in coach Pauw's future? And in Banyana Banyana's?
