Mngomeni "We are not in England, but to Coach Locally Club Bosses wants England Papers"

Does the FIFA coaching program make good coach? Is it compulsory for every player who wishes to take coaching as a career to have FIFA qualifications, as many coaches coaching in our local football posses this qualifications. But the truth is South Africa has more talent that is overlooked.

This is why the former Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates skipper Thabo Mngomeni complains of foreign coaches taking over the Premier Soccer League and, the legendary midlefielder points finger at club bosses, for not believing on the local talent. Somehow Mngomeni might be correct, club bosses need to recognize local talent and give former players chances.

Mngomeni says this is leading to teams not playing typical South African football anymore, as foreign coaches bring their own style of play. The Khayelitsha born man who is not shy to express himself concerning the local football, complains of the fact that it seems when a coach doesn't have foreign qualification, the club bosses ignores him.

The last time the country did well in African Cup of Nations was under Clive Barker, when they won the continental cup. Next it was Jomo Sono, the owner and coach of Jomo Cosmos who won the bronze medal for the country.

After them foreign coaches came, but did not yield results for Bafana Bafana. The South African Football Association (SAFA) must appoint a local coach, and former players like Mngomeni, Sibusiso Zuma and others should be given roles to develop local football. Mngomeni who is currently unemployed, is based in his township and is trying to groom talent from the township.
