Mosimane had said recently when comparing his country to the North Africans, a rising world football power:

“The difference between South Africa and Morocco is big. Morocco have been aggressive in their development, and I have no doubt they will dominate African football soon. They have the biggest vision on the continent, and they take their football very seriously.
“South Africa is 20 years behind. Here at home, we are big on doing talk shows and everyone sounds clever calling and saying ‘we have the infrastructure and all that’. But football is played in the townships, where we have no facilities, and we need government support, Safa can’t do it alone.”
