Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Rulani Mokwena is very vocal on the timeline when it comes to football. This time, the coach has decided to talk about his thoughts on European football and he started a discussion on how South African football compares.
"The level of football being played in Europe currently is extremely scary... Unbelievably top-level technical execution, consistently, with clear schemes under sustained match intensity... Ridiculous," said Mokwena.
It's obvious that Mokwena watches a lot of European football, as he's even gone as far as comparing his team to European teams and footballers. He's even compared his centre-backs to the top Italian greats.
South African football fans then started sharing their thoughts too and a discussion took place. Check out some of the differing reactions below:

"We don`t have to attain their levels. We just have to play our way. Why do we all have to be like them Europeans."
"And the teams over there are so evenly matched in terms of quality, unlike here in SA where we now know who's gonna win the league next year."
"I don’t even remember the last time I watched a PSL game, it’s so PAP, I’m sorry to say this."
