Fikile Mbalula slams useless Bafana after CHAN 2014 exit

Minister of Sport Fikile Mbalula has launched a scathing attack on Bafana Bafana in the wake of their early African Nations Championship exit, labeling them ‘losers’ and ‘mediocre’.

The senior national team crashed to a 3-1 defeat to Nigeria to finish third in Group A behind the Super Eagles and Mali, and at a press conference in Cape Town this morning, the outspoken Mbalula did not mince his words.

“Last night we saw a bunch of losers – unbearable useless individuals. We must never wake up to this,” he said.

“We indeed have a crisis of monumental proportions this tournament has proved. That mediocrity we saw yesterday is disgraceful."

Mbalula added: “In Africa we have won nothing – we are the laughing stock. Even Madiba Magic would not have worked. This generation of players we must forget.

“It is back to the drawing board. SAFA must draw up a detailed plan. They must wake up and smell the coffee.”
