Confirmed: SAFA Finally Announce Bafana Coach

Benni McCarthy was the leading candidate, but after SAFA, according to Siya sources, fell short on his personal demands and available budget, the ex-striker pulled out of the race, leaving Broos as the last man standing. 

The NEC has given Broos a five-year contract.
