New Bafana coach to be announced on July 26

2014-07-15 16:49

Bafana Bafana will have a new coach to replace the outgoing Gordon Igesund next Saturday.

The new coach will be announced after the South African Football Association (Safa) has held its national executive meeting on July 26, the organisation said today.

“The position of the senior men’s national team needs to be ratified by the Safa [National Executive Committee], therefore the long-awaited announcement of the new Bafana Bafana coach will be made immediately after the NEC meeting next Saturday,” said Safa CEO Dennis Mumble.

Speculation has been rife that former Bafana coach Carlos Queiroz could be reunited with the team he last coached in 2002.

Other names linked to the team include former Nigerian coach Stephen Keshi, who quit his job after the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, former Zambia coach Hervé Renard, Italian Giovanni Trapattoni and former Orlando Pirates mentor Ruud Krol.
