We all know that the Bafana Bafana job is not the most appealing job on the continent, so what arouses the interest of coaches who apply for such a job, especially the Bafana Bafana job?
Often the most successful coaches in the world have passion emanating from their squad. SAFA will pay what they have to when they believe someone could make a change, and coaches won't decline a good cheque. But that doesn't mean the passionate players are there.
Also, there is a fine line in being confident and being egotistical. Every coach applying for the Bafana Bafana post knows what he will be getting himself into. There is a slim chance of succeeding, so is it a case of the coach having a big ego or does he just want the money?
