Kumele sincome uma kufanelekile. Kufanele sibungaze unompempe waseNingizimu Afrika uVictor Gomes ngemuva kokudlala kwakhe kahle kowamanqamu kowe-Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) yonyaka ka-2021.

UGomes ube ngunompempe wokuqala waseNingizimu Afrika ukuphatha kowamanqamu kowe-Afcon futhi umele izwe ngendlela encomekayo kakhulu.

Akagcinanga ngokumela iNingizimu Afrika kahle kodwa uphinde wabuyisa osekulahlekile konompempe bakuleli – ithemba nokwethenjwa.

Abashisekeli bebhola, okuhlanganisa nedlanzana labaqeqeshi bamaqembu e-PSL babe nezinkinga eziningi mayelana nezinga elibi lokuphatha kumaligi ethu asekhaya iminyaka eminingi. Okuncane okushiwo ngonompempe bakwamanye amazwe ase-Afrika kungcono.

Abaphathi bemidlalo yaseNingizimu Afrika sebewuphoxe kaningi umphakathi, kanti noGomes akakhishiwe. Waze wanikezwa nesidlaliso esithi uPenaldinho ngenxa yokulangazelela kwakhe nentshisekelo ngesikhathi sokuqala komsebenzi wakhe.

Abadlali bebehlezi beqaphile ngoba bekumele banyathele ngokucophelela uma uGomes eshaya impempe. Ubengesabi ukungena ephaketheni lakhe futhi noPitso Mosimane angakufakazela lokho.

Ngesikhathi esekwi-Mamelodi Sundowns, uMosimane uke wabhekana kaningi noGomes kwaholela ekutheni akhishwe ngekhadi elibomvu.

Lo nompempe oneminyaka engu-39 ubudala, uthuthuke kakhulu eminyakeni edlule futhi manje usethathwa njengomunye wonompempe abahamba phambili e-Afrika – ikakhulukazi ngemuva komdlalo kowamanqamu we-Afcon e-Yaounde, e-Cameroon lapho i-Senegal ishaye khona i-Egypt waba ngunompempe ovelele e-Afrika.

“Kungenxa yezingqungquthela esinazo njalo ezingeni le-Safa, i-CAF ne-FIFA ukuthi sithuthuke,” kusho unompempe owazalelwa eGoli ngesikhathi ebuya e-Cameroon. 

Ucele ukuthi abantu bagade abakubhala kwimbiko yabo.

“Izikhathi eziningi unompempe uthatha isinqumo kanti abantu abaqondi ukusetshenziswa kwemithetho yomdlalo futhi ilapho okuvele kuqale khona inkinga. Ngiyakwethembisa, onompempe base-Afrika bangompetha.”

Isikhathi esishayelwe ihlombe abaningi kweye-Afcon ilapho uGomes ebefuna ukunikeza ukaputeni wase-Egypt uMohamed Salah impempe yakhe namakhadi ukuze azophatha umdlalo. Lesi sihlabani se-Liverpool besilokhu sikhononda into engapheli.

“Lezi izinto ezihlukumeza umqondo ezenziwa abadlali bazenza kuthina. Ngifisa sengathi ngingaba nombhobho omncane ukuze wonke umuntu ezwe ukuthi abadlali bathini kimina ukuze baqonde ukuthi kungani ngenza ngendlela engenza ngayo,” kusho lonompempe.
