Football coach and television analyst Farouk Khan, says we must stop the hype and make use of professional sports psychologists.

Throughout the history of football, there were many wonderkids that failed to reach their potential in the history of this sport. These young children were destined to be the next legends of this sport.

It's simply impossible to predict how any footballer's career trajectory will pan out long-term.

Joining us to share more on young players failing to reach their full potential is Farouk Khan, Director of Coaching at Stars of Africa Football Academy.

It boils down to the psychological and social. For example, Jabu Pule at Kaizer chiefs. He retired too soon. It is important there should not be too much hype. Players succumb to peer pressure. We must use professional sports psychologists.
