Veteran Kaizer Chiefs midfielder John Shoes Moshoeu has launched a scathing attack on local football, branding it close-minded, lacking entertainment and having no credible role models.

Speaking in the latest edition of Soccer Laduma, the 37-year-old says the standard of the local game has dropped in a big way.

Take for instance the number of supporters attending the game these days&that has dropped, he says.

Entertaining football has gone. The legacy left by the Ace Ntsoelengoes and the others is gone.

We preserved it when we came in but after the likes of Neil Tovey, its all gone.

Look at the class of 96 and compare it to the present squad. The difference is highly noticeable and this is a clear example that theres something we are not doing right.

Moshoeu, who plied his trade in Turkey for ten years, sees the cause of the problem as being South Africas refusal to learn from other countries.

The problem is that we think we know it all, says Moshoeu frankly.

Look at countries like Korea and Japan, they have taken ideas from European countries and have now improved a great deal. Why dont we do the same?

No doubt they are better than us by far.

He also urges the powers that be to look for advice from retired South Africans with overseas playing experience.

You cannot ignore people like Fani Madida. He has learnt a lot and has something to offer maybe not as a player but as a coach or an administrator.

These things are very important and can change the game in this country.
