SL Readers’ Tips To Shakes Mashaba

We really hope that Shakes Mashaba is prepared for his first game at the helm of Bafana Bafana. Not to add to the pressure he no doubt already feels, but we want him to understand how very important it is to us that Bafana Bafana do well.

So we put this question to our readers on Facebook and Twitter: If you had coach Shakes Mashaba’s ear ahead of his first game in charge of Bafana Bafana, what would you say to him?

 Here are some of the best responses:


@Tebzamiss: Afcon 2015 is a priority..qualifying is of utmost important…All the Best, we behind him #SLChat

@moyoremind: #Shakes must just tell the boys to go and play their normal game and enjoy, he must just observe first match no pressure

@Ntsakelomaluks: don’t play defensive football man let’s go forward and use 4-4-2 system

@Esrom95: I need a win and that you should have added @Erasmus_95 in your squad

@TeA_Bee15: If you had the guts to take a young squad, then I believe they will do the job for you. Good Luck Mr Mashaba 


Obakeng Nkadimang: Defend and attack as a unit, just like lions vying for zebras

Nkosiyedwa Zonyane: I’m happy 4 u Mr Mashaba, make us proud, I’ll support u till the end of ur contract

Isaac Funani Funani: I will tell him to put me in a starting 11

Anele Ngqokoma Joseph: Bring back the experienced players like Teko Modise, May Mahlangu, Thulani Serero, Siyabonga Sangweni

Thabani Khoza: Development is not one or two games, you can’t leave all old and good players and rely on kids in such an important game. 

Since our readers on social media got to have their say, it’s over to you now SC members! What would you tell Shakes Mashaba if you had a sit down with him?
