Football is a sport that is loved by many around the world, however with each and everything it has changed over the years. This can be interpreted differently depending on the aspect as there's many dimensions to the game. There's the business side of things and the actual work which takes place on the field. Many people don't agree with how things are done now, however we can't ignore the growth more especially in the South African football context.
Orlando Pirates has had players come and go, however this star is easily memorable for what he did at the club. He struck a special connection with fans mainly because of his skills and ability to entertain the crowd. He was an attraction for fans to come to the stadiums before the pandemic, however he has since kept a relatively low profile as he continues to enjoy his football in the Glad Africa Championship.
Mark Mayambela took to social media to share a thought provoking post as he highlighted what is wrong with the current state of football. This picture dissects the fact that the sport has turned into a money making machine and is no longer for the people. It is also suggests that the majority of players in the current generation don't have heart as compared to previous generations.
We've seen this happening more especially with the rise of social media, modern footballers are more focused on this more than their primary job. Money is needed in order for the sport to grow, however we can't ignore the fact that the power has slowly been taken away from the people and given to the big corporations.
Mark Mayambela is a talented player and there's no doubt that he will make a great coach in the future. He is a purist when it comes to football and he reflects that through his play style. His focus is on the fans and the people who actually enjoy the sport. It has been amazing to see what he has contributed and still has potential for more.
