Carlos Queiroz, who is currently coaching the Iran national football team, is linked with the Bafana Bafana job after SAFA decided not to extend their deal with Gordon Igesund.
He previously coached Bafana Bafana from the year 2000 until 2002 and is reported to be one the candidates to take over where GI left off.
Queiroz has a CV that speaks for itself having been Sir Alex Ferguson's assistant manager at Manchester United, he has managed the Portuguese national team and was in charge of them during the 2010 FIFA World Cup here in South Africa.
He also had a spell at Spanish giants Real Madrid in the 2003/2004 club season.
He has recently helped Iran qualify for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. Should SAFA succeed in persuading him to take the hot seat at our national team, he would have the tough task of managing a national team in crisis.
Would he succeed if SAFA was to offer him a long term deal?
