“Long Balls, Tiki-Taka or Kasi Flavour - Which Style Suits SA Clubs?” – Reader’s Voice

Default

In South Africa, we were known for our beautiful football, which Bafana Bafana once showed the world. When we won the AFCON in 1996, Doctor Khumalo, outclassed Brazilian defender, Dunga. That was South Africa’s best football.

Lately, the country’s teams have found it hard to master their own style of football, simply because they've adopted European style of play, which is detracting from their quality. Bafana used to go places with their local style of play and players were moving to Europe easily. However, lately, they can't export many players because of this long-ball football our clubs have adopted.

The likes of ‘16v’, Zane Moosa, John 'Shoes' Moshoeu, Jabu ‘Shuffle’ Pule, Scara ‘Black Jesus’ Ngobese, Steve Lekoelea, Junior Kanye and Thabiso Malatsi, just to mention few, were all playing entertaining football and stadiums were filled.

Now you find Chippa United, playing Tiki-Taka, but they fail to grind positive results. So, what is the use of mastering a football style that will see you draw the majority of your games? There's only one option and that is to revert to our roots and try to reinstall our own football style. This would be entertaining and could also be healthy for Bafana Bafana.

Having said that, what style of football suits South Africa?

Our style is the best trust me. Its brings goals. Ect look @ Chiefs and Pirates game where Pirates introduce Qalinge and start playing kasi flavour. We manage to equalise and win that game. Beside those style its always a 0-0 or 1-1 draw I think we pay more for nothing

We won afcon wit out own style. Since we became copy cats we r going no where...even chiefs and pirate dominated the league with our own SA style but today all that is gone yes we must try to mix the modern play and our own style

The one that wins games , in fact if our goalkeeper can be dropped any style could suit Bafana-Bafana
