Dutch coach Vera Pauw is expected to be announced as the new Banyana Banyana coach tomorrow.

City Press has been reliably informed by two sources that the South African Football Association (Safa) will announce the 51-year-old former defender as a successor to Joseph Mkhonza.

Pauw comes with a rich CV as she has coached the women’s teams of Scotland, Holland and Russia.

She also won 89 caps for the Holland national team between 1983 and 1998.

It is not clear if Mkhonza will be retained within the team, particularly after leading Banyana to their maiden Olympic Games in London in 2012.

Safa will make the announcement tomorrow.
