Former Bafana Bafana head coach, Shakes Mashaba and the South African Football Association have managed to successfully reach a settlement in their CCMA case.
The legal battle between SAFA and Mashaba’s camp dragged on for several months after the coach was dismissed from the helm of the South African national team last year.
SAFA have since appointed Stuart Baxter in the role, despite Mashaba’s camp previously attempting to have the former national team coach reinstated.
The 66-year-old recently presented his case of unfair dismissal before the CCMA and it has been confirmed that the saga has finally been put to bed.
The negotiations between SAFA and Mashaba’s camp were successful with the coach’s representative, Claudio Bollo, indicating that they had reached an amicable decision. He added that Mashaba was happy with the outcome as both respective parties move forward.
There have been reports that the settlement agreement between SAFA and Mashaba is valued at R2.5 million and while Bollo was questioned on the matter, the legal representative would not comment on the matter, stating that it is confidential.
