Mosimane questions shortage of white players in the PSL

Al Ahly coach Pitso Mosimane says he remains forever connected to Mamelodi Sundowns.Al Ahly head coach Pitso Mosimane has questioned the lack of white players in the PSL's top-flight.

Mosimane is the most decorated coach in South African footballing history, winning four successive league titles whilst in charge of Sundowns.

There have been a number of notable white playes in the PSL in the past such as Gavin Lane, Dillon Sheperd, Eric Tinkler and Neil Tovey to name but a few.

However, these days the presence of white players is shrinking increasingly and Mosimane is bemused as to why that is the case.

"In the schools the white boys are playing football. Why are white boys not playing football in the PSL?" Mosimane asked.

"But there's so many white boys playing football. My son is 13 and he's playing against talented white players. I asked myself, why we do not have them in the [senior] teams?

"What is the problem? We need to investigate that. We need to check on those things.

"I am trying to change things. I am not trying to say that I will be successful, but I will try — and if you are doing the right things, you are bound to be successful. The white boys are playing in those schools — they must come through the system."
