BCM Stars FC head coach Tshepo Motsoeneng has made a plea for South African football to invest in goalkeeping development.
This comes after the Eastern Cape-based outfit were eliminated from the ABC Motsepe League national playoffs after suffering a 1-0 defeat at the expense of Platinum City Rovers on the opening day of the competition and went to play a goalless draw with The Dolphins.
“I feel like South Africa need to do a research of who we have in the country, however, I’m not saying importing goalkeepers into the country is wrong but I’m saying is time we nurture our own,” he said.
Motsoeneng made these remarks as a former professional goalkeeper who represented Santos, Chippa United, Free State Stars just to mention a few.
The 42-year-old mentor also highlighted that for a goalkeeper in today’s game, the ultimate seal of approval comes from one of the best goalkeepers to ever play the game being an big admirer of you.
“South Africa let’s wake up or else we will wake up when we don’t have a goalkeeper at all in this country. It’s not on to import goalkeepers, we have to now learn to develop our own and make sure that we have the right height and the right product as well.
