SAFA To Reshuffle National Team Coaches?

SAFA To Reshuffle National Team Coaches?

By Soccer Laduma - Sep 26, 2017 02:17 PM

The South African Football Association is expected to make several changes to the national teams’ technical benches, with Thabo Senong and Quinton Fortune set to be handed new roles.

The South African Football Association confirmed in August this year that the former Manchester United star, Fortune, was requested by Head Coach Baxter to serve as one of the assistant coaches to the senior national team, however, pending a signed contract with the association.

In other changes, Owen Da Gama recently parted ways with the association, with SAFA set to appoint a new head coach at the helm of the U23 setup. 

The Siya crew has since been informed by a source close to SAFA that the association is currently eyeing current U20 head coach, Senong, to take over the reins in the U23 setup, while current U17 head coach Molefe Ntseki, could be promoted to the helm of the U20 team.

Former Bafana midfielder, Fortune is also expected to be handed a role within the national team setup, with Siya sources informing the crew that the association is keen on appointing Fortune at the helm of the U17 team.

Bafana will host Burkina Faso next month, October 07 at the FNB Stadium in a crucial 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying encounter, with Senong and Fortune set to continue their services alongside head coach Baxter on the bench of the senior national team, while also doubling up as the head coaches of the U23 and U17 setups respectively.

Thabo Senong not yet ready for this high level of coaching. We have coaches like Rhulani who have the knowledge of grass roots I mean the 6 year olds to 12 year olds, Mr senong is not so brave at the moment.. Less said about Stuart the better he is on the verge of doing it again(not qualifying to the world cup) due to favouritism
