Former Bafana Bafana star midfielder Macbeth Sibaya added his voice to who the South African Football Association (SAFA) need to employ as the next head coach of the national team.
SAFA confirmed that a 'special announcement' would be made on Wednesday, with many expecting the association to declare who Bafana Bafana's new mentor finally is.
Carlos Queiroz, Benni McCarthy and Hugo Broos are reportedly the leading candidates to succeed Molefi Ntseki after SAFA pulled the trigger on the 51-year-old's five-year contract at the end of March.
Speaking ahead of the announcement, Sibaya, who earned 62 senior national caps, believes that it "should not matter" whether the coach is local or foreign.
"I think we need to find a coach who can grind for results so that we qualify for the competitions that are coming since that is what we want," said Sibaya as quoted by KickOff.
"Bafana needs someone to pull magic right away because we need to qualify through all the problems.
"It shouldn't matter whether the coach is local or foreign because what matters are the results.
"I believe anyone who will come in with a short programme of getting results will be suited for the job, not someone with a long-term plan."
Sibaya says that there is no time for long-term planning and the next person who takes the jobs needs to produce quick results
"Anyone who can also come in with a finder-finder plan for these forthcoming qualifiers is what we need because there is no time for a long-term plan," the 43-year-old said.
"We need an immediate plan since we are in this situation where we need to compete and qualify now for the World Cup (Qatar 2022).
"In any case, we have been operating on a finder-finder basis like the guys who play dice. You might come good or come bad that way.
"That plan doesn't guarantee you results because it is just hoping on luck. Luck shouldn't be what we depend on but rather something that finds you along the way depending on how you work.
"I am not saying we are not capable, but realistically, I think whatever the plan is, it is too late now for next year's World Cup, so we must just take chances if we want to qualify."
