Steve Komphela feels that Bafana Bafana is struggling to attract large crowds to home matches because there are a lot of negatives around the team.
READ OUT: Very confident of the showdown in Nigeria
Bafana will hope to win home advantage when E Nigeria leaders will host their 2019 FIFA World Cup finals at the FNB on Saturday (15:00).
With Stuart Baxter's side under fire because he failed to qualify for major competitions such as the FIFA 2018 World Cup and the previous AFCON, many Sudafricans have moderated their support for Bafana.
Comphela argues a change of mind among his compatriots, and the media in particular is needed "for the sake of progress".
"One thing we've taken too, we're too negative, you have to listen to the commentary, the analysis and everything about Bafana," Bloemfontein Celtic team coach said.
"Some are looking for a negative angle. Can we be positive and help these children and the coach?
– After that, boys [media] ask "why do people not come to the stadium?" Dude, how are I going in a negative place? Because everything is pumped with negativity so that people can listen to you and do things.
"It is wrong, just for the sake of progress, to be positive, to invite people, to come when it is positive, but we are busy talking about many negative things and we ask" why is the Moses Mabhida stadium empty? "
"You made Mabhida naked selling the game in a negative way, just like that … And it is sad that we become so hypocritical that we condemn things and want the same thing to become a compliment."
Kompel added: "We wanted Stuart to be the best and to be all real and to support him, but it's a long way," says society immediately, society immediately judges Society is so eager, but we have a product that is ready we can look forward to achieve results, we have to be patient, now there is nothing like building and all this, now you are judged. "
Bafana needs a victory against Super Eagles to make sure he qualifies for Cameroon 2019 with a spare game against Libya.
