Bafana

SAFA Meeting At 10h30

The South African Football Association will hold a meeting today, 5 September, at 10h30, where Shakes Mashaba’s future as Bafana Bafana’s head coach, among other things, will be discussed.

The Siya crew revealed on the weekend that the future of Mashaba will be decided after the clash against Egypt on Tuesday in the Nelson Mandela Challenge.

The teams’ result on Tuesday could be key to deciding whether or not the 66-year-old will continue at the helm of the South African national team. However, indications are that Mashaba will be facing the exit-door.

Bafana saw a disappointing end to their 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying campaign when Mauritania held the team to a 1-1 draw.

Now, Mashaba’s immediate future as Bafana’s head coach is of much speculation, given that the team have failed to win a single home match during their qualifying campaign.

SAFA are set to make the decision on whether Mashaba will continue in his current role, or if there will be changes ahead of the country’s 2018 World Cup qualifiers.

"This must be the end of the journey, not the beginning, because this cannot lead us into the 2018 campaign, where we will play the giants of the African continent," SAFA president, Danny Jordaan said after Bafana’s match against Mauritania on Friday.
