WE see some have their knives out for Allister Coetzee after that Springboks defeat to Ireland.

Word of advise, put them back.

He didn’t say he was going to win his first game. Let the man lose a few before you barrage our ears and eyes with unreadables.

Coetzee still has to fill up the quotas as the Minister of Sport and Twitter stipulated, then we start asking him in vernacular how he can be beaten by people who do not eat pap and vleis.

So Muhsin Ertugral has found himself a new job. He will now be barking orders from the Orlando Pirates dugout. We wish well.

My hope of seeing Tebogo Moloi promoted to head coach at that club are dwindling rapidly. Moloi has been assistant coach at Orlando Pirates for a very long time. He was there when Jomo Somo abandoned his wedding to go and rescue the team from defeat by scoring two goals. So in all the years that he has been at Pirates the man has not learnt enough for to at least lead Bucs to the brink of relegation?

The late coach Mutombo almost did it, so why can’t Tebza.

The lack of faith we have in our own is astounding. With all due respect to the likes of Ertugral, Ernst Middendorp, Kosta Papic etc there is nothing special that they have brought to these shores in terms of lighting the football arena.

We had no strikers before they came, we still cannot buy goals in the local game. We had wayward talented stars before they came, the likes of Masibusane Zongo still drift in the league. If at least one these richly-experienced foreign coaches had kept Sipho Nunens on the straight and narrow, then we would have something to applaud them for.

The fact that they are being recycled more times than a Carling Black Label bottle says to me they are not as entirely good at their jobs as purported.

Middendorp has changed jobs more times than I have underclothes. What do these club chairmen/owners see that we don’t see? What? If one these gentlemen had been able to hold on to a coaching job for longer than a standard ruler then maybe I would be a little convinced of the need to keep re-cycling them in our local league.

Maybe our good Minister of Sports and Twitter could have a word with the football bosses about quotas in the coaching field. He cannot use that banning to host thing we’ve hosted everything there is to host in football. Indeed, it was the great the minister himself who said we should not used as hosting pad anymore even when the original host has pulled out.

Maybe he could just suspend the hiring of foreign coaches in local football. Then maybe my man Tebogo can stand a chance at coaching and not just be a glorified kitman at Orlando Pirates.
