Meanwhile, senior head coach Arthur Zwane is calling for the end of showboating, also known in South Africa as ‘Kasi football’.

After his famous advice to Mfundo Vilakazi, one of Amakhosis rising youth and the viral videos on social media, Zwane was recently asked to share his views.

According to the former winger, if the public continues to encourage youth to show off, South African football simply will go nowhere.

“First and foremost, our employees need to understand what flair is,” Zwane said in a video shared by Mahlatse Mphahlele via Twitter.
