Solomons praises Mvela league 04/05/05
Maritzburg United coach Boebie Solomons has praised the organisation of the Mvela Golden league, although he is concerned that the standard of play may not be up to scratch.

"The organisation has been wonderful," he told the Cape Times. "All the teams have played the same number of games, the last five fixtures are kicking off at the same time throughout the country and there has generally been little controversy throughout the season."

However, although Solomons is extremely pleased with the way the league is being run off the field, he is concerned that all is not well on the field of play.

It is a world-wide problem that clubs promoted from the lower ranks into a top-flight league often drop straight back down at the end of the season.

The likes of Zulu Royals and African Wanderers are good examples of this in the South African soccer scene.

Solomons is worried that if nothing is done to to improve the standard of play in the national first divison that this trend will continue.

 "The quality of the football remains below that of the Premiership," he added. "There's a certain standard that clubs in this league must aspire to if they are serious about going up and staying in the elite set-up.
 
"If the current status quo remains, the yo-yo effect will continue. I think club owners must be realistic when they go after promotion. They have to get the right tools for the job and keep upgrading once they have reached the top."
