Bidvest Wits defender Onismor Bhasera says the football has improved

Posted: 1 March 2014 Time: 10:35

Bidvest Wits defender Onismor Bhasera says he is impressed with how the game in South Africa has improved since his return from a four year stay in England.

Bhasera first spent almost five years at Maritzburg United and Kaizer Chiefs before he then moved to English club Plymouth Argyle before the 2010 World Cup but then decided to return at the beginning of the season to join Wits.

Since he came back the Zimbabwean has played regularly for The Clever Boys but has taken notice of the changes.

“The standard of the game has obviously improved from the last time that I played in the Premiership,” says Bhasera.

“I mean there have been huge developments in the game after the staging of the World Cup and the Afcon have been here. Everything has changed for the better and even on the field of play there are no easy matches anymore.

“Every match is now a big game now because all the teams are very organized which makes players get to have a strong mentality and be more committed,” says Bhasera.

Meanwhile, the Zimbabwe international is encouraging his team mates to keep grinding results ahead of Mamelodi Sundowns’ visit to the Bidvest Stadium on Saturday evening.

Bhasera is however suspended for that game after being sent off in the mid-week win over SuperSport United.

“We will just have to keep on grinding out results. We are happy with our progress so we will just have to take each and every match as it comes.

“What matters most for me is that we are working as a team and I am happy with the progress that we have made. For me it is less about the individual but more about the team achieving on its goals,” he says.

If you have nothing football-related to write about, then report about the cricket or something.

This is nothing new to us, we've been hearing this since forever and are bhasera an improved player since leaving chiefs back then? Me thinks not, so how are we to believe the words coming from a mediocre player? Bhasera is as crazy as the cowditor that wrote this crappy article' football is SA has improved' really, you're both drunk and sniffed too much glue. Once and always bucs

I disagree with u mfene yam. The standard has detoriated even further. Only salary packages have improved. Just compare any overseas league to ours u'll see that we are way behind. How many thow ins you see in a match, our ball boys are much fitter than our players. 95% of ourr players can't trap the ball, poor decision making, back passes etc. Teams are however more competitive these days

Absolute rubbish - There is not a single striker who is worth his salary in this country - NOT EVEN ONE!  Not bad in defense and midfield.  However consistency is just not there in even the best performing teams. Even amongst managers,  Examples - Pitso ran out of steam after the first quarter and is still huffing and puffing.  De Sa was great and then became tired. The only managers that have been consistent have been Baxter and given the material he has to work with Steve Barker.  The rest pretty useless.  The best striker has 10 goals after 19 league games?  Pretty sick not so? As sick as SAFA is.  Football in SA is a hospital case. That is why more and more fans are turning into European football supporters.
