Ntseki's Agent Ropes In Legal Team After Unceremonious Axing

Molefi Ntseki's representatives are seeking counsel from a legal team following his recent axing as Bafana Bafana coach. 

SAFA called a press conference last week Wednesday, March 31, to confirm that they had sacked Ntseki as senior national team coach after the team was beaten 2-0 by Sudan and subsequently failed to qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations.

At the time of announcement, SAFA CEO Tebogo Motlanthe confirmed that they had not informed Ntseki of the news of his sacking, given the verdict on his future had only been made on the Wednesday morning at around 10am.

Not long after the press conference, The Siya crew got in touch with Ntseki and his representative Thato Matuka, who both confirmed that they were yet to receive any sort of communication from the association regarding the decision that had been made about the coach’s future.

Matuka confirmed that they have since received the letter from SAFA and they are now seeking counsel from a legal team to help interpret it.

“We’ve moved one step in that, on the 1st of April, they sent us the letter, indicating the termination. Currently we are seeking counsel from our legal team and then we will take it from there. That’s where we are as we speak,” Matuka tells the Siya crew.

“The letter entails details that pertain to labour issues and some contractual aspects and obviously there’s reference to the law. So, seeking counsel is asking experts help us interpret the letter and help us respond to the letter. We are not fighting. We are just asking experts to interpret the letter and guide us of the way forward.”

The Siya crew has been informed that Ntseki's contract as Bafana coach was due to expire in 2023. One of the matters set to be dealt with, the Siya crew gathers, will be the coach's payout.
