OPINION:

I believe that South Africa is not using Farouk enough. His job is highly recognisable and the last time that Kaizer Chiefs produced high profile players was when he was leading their development academy. I think he would be useful for the development of National team players if he could be involved in under 23 structures because young blood is what he deals with.
