Mosimane going ahead with plans to sue

2012-06-07 14:32

Former Bafana Bafana coach Pitso Mosimane is going ahead with plans to sue the SA Football Association (Safa) over his dismissal as national team coach, Rod Harper of Cowan Harper Attorneys said today.

The firm is representing Mosimane.

“Mosimane is exercising his right to fair labour practices in terms of the Constitution and the Labour Relations Act,” said Harper.

“He is seeking to meet with Safa in an attempt to resolve the issues as speedily and amicably as possible in the best interests of football,” Harper added.

Mosimane was fired on Monday night, two years into a four-year contract, following a disappointing 1-1 draw against Ethiopia in Rustenburg in their opening 2014 Fifa World Cup qualifying match.

It was the national team’s seventh consecutive game without a win.

During his two years in charge, Bafana also failed to qualify for the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations after team management, led by Mosimane, bungled the rules.
