The future of Bafana Bafana coach Gordon Igesund hangs in the balance after the national team’s humiliating 3-1 defeat to Nigeria which sent them crashing out of the African Nations Championship (Chan). Speculation is rife after last night’s match that Igesund will not see out his contract which expires in June. Safa CEO Dennis Mumble was seen entering the Bafana hotel at midnight, possibly to deliver the final blow to Igesund’s future. However, Mumble refused to comment except to say that something had to be done. “I am going to see the coach. I couldn’t wait for the morning because sometimes you need to deal with things as soon as possible,” said a visibly disappointed Mumble. “We have given him all the support he needed, even to the extent of threatening clubs to release players and now this,” said Mumble, referring to Bafana’s exit from the tournament in the first round. A press conference is scheduled for this morning where Safa president Danny Jordaan and Sport and Recreation Minister Fikile Mbalula will address the media. But Igesund is not concerned about his future saying he was at peace with his achievements. He said the team had made strides since he took over in 2012. “Whatever happens happens. If I am no longer needed I can live with that. There have been some huge improvements in the team since I took over and if I live tomorrow, I would have done what I had to do,” said Igesund. He said missing out on a place in the quarterfinals of the tournament was not the lowest point in his career. “We have to regroup and move forward,” said Igesund. Under Igesund, Bafana won 14 of their 28 games, drawing seven and losing seven.
