Should Mzansi Embrace The Showboating?

South Africa has had its fair share of talented and skilful footballers over the years who have had crowds glued to their television screens and running to stadiums to witness the ‘Kasi Flavour’. However, today we are speaking of a different story as many have judged our football and tried to steer it in the direction of a European-style.

Who remembers the days of Jabu Mahlangu, Steve Lekoelea, Scara Ngobese, Jomo Sono, Doctor Khumalo, Ace Ntsoelengoe, Shakes Kungwane, Professor Ngubane? just to name a few, who dribbled their way through the opposition and made soccer an entertaining sport to watch.

It is sad to see when the younger generation of today with the likes of Thabo Rakhale, Thabo Qalinge, Sipho Moeti, Tshepo Matete and others who are sometimes put on the lifeline for their showboating skills, with even Orlando Pirates’ Rakhale making headlines internationally after his performance in the Soweto Derby against Kaizer Chiefs and was slammed by the English media. Another sad situation is that with the flack thrown at our South African footballers, the international players are praised whenever they produce a trick or two. Please enlighten me with the difference!

It is about time that we as the South African footballing nation start to embrace the football that we grew up supporting. Sometimes a different path needs to be taken and we can’t be following what the rest of the world is doing. This is Mzansi and Kasi Flavour is the culture of our game!

What are your thoughts on having our players showcase their skills?
