Western Cape Economic Freedom Fighters Chairperson Bernard Joseph today said that Allister Coetzee would be the right choice to take the Springboks forward, but only if he gets to pick his team and design his own blueprint for the future of the national rugby team.
Joseph commented, “It is the worlds worst kept secret that Allister Coetzee is the new Springbok coach, and should this be finally ratified, we believe that he will be the right man to take us forward.”
“Oregan Hoskins must resist any and all pressure from outside boosters, backers, donors and interested parties to lean on Coetzee to pick certain players, and thus compromise the vision and erode the responsibility of the head coach. Allister has proved himself as a top level local coach and he has earned the right to be trusted to build his backroom team and his playing squad in his way. Coetzee is the right man to re-instill pride in our national team and must be given a free hand to do so.”
