Dumitru concerned about national call-ups 10/03/04
The outspoken Kaizer Chiefs coach Ted Dumitru has called for more cooperation between the Premier Soccer League and the national coaches.

This comes in the wake of a number of PSL matches being postponed due to the under-23 match between South Africa and Ghana which is taking place on Saturday March 13.

"Many other PSL clubs are affected by national call-ups and having their matches postponed for the duration of national camps," said the Amakhosi coach to the Daily news.

He also believes that the national coaches and the PSL coaches should have meetings to iron out their differences to ensure a better working relationship.

"There are things that we could tell the national coaches to help them understand our difficulties and we theirs. I have no problem releasing players for Bafana Bafana, Amaglug-glug, Zambia, DRC or any country as long as those players are not there to make up numbers and spend the match on the bench," said Dumitru.

He also used David Kannemeyer as a perfect example of this as he is routinely called up for Bafana Bafana, but hardly features at all.

"Kannemeyer is a good example, but he is not the only one. There are players from other clubs who have endured similar frustrations," said Dumitru.

Dumitru said that the national coaches should know what players there are going to use. If they have two players on the bench from one club they should look for another reserve player from other teams.
