Former Bafana Bafana coach Ephraim ‘Shakes’ Mashaba has expressed his disappointment on coach Molefi Ntseki following South Africa’s failure to qualify for the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
In an interview with Mmasekepe Matsebane on Power FM, Shakes said, “For Molefi Ntseki to say he failed, that is a disgrace. It means he does not know what he is doing. I am worried about him. Let him step aside and allow someone else to take over.
“You have sold yourself if you tell us that you have failed. Rather tell us you tried something and it did not work, and you will come up with another plan. What chance does he expect when he has told us he has failed?
“The other thing we need to forget is the mentality that if you do not have overseas-based players, Bafana [Bafana] will not perform. Forget it! Those players are not playing overseas. They are not. They are just bench warmers.
“And they come here and want to dictate, and get positions because they are overseas. I would not even say they are playing overseas. They are just tourists, visiting overseas. They come back here without playing even 10 games.”
