It was reported by the Siya crew last year that Sundowns’ Multichoice Diski Challenge coach, David Notoane, was being eyed up by SAFA with regards to a post at the association, with suggestions that it was his name in line to take on the role of U23s coach.

Now it has been confirmed that the former Santos man has been tasked with overseeing South Africa’s youngsters as they look to try and qualify for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

Speaking to SAFA.net, Notoane said of his new role, “I am very excited about this project and I am looking forward to (doing) justice to the faith shown in me by doing my utmost best to qualify for Tokyo 2020 Olympics…

“I would want to take this opportunity to thank the Association, especially President Danny Jordaan and head of the Technical Committee, Mr Maluleke for the faith shown in me and not forgetting my club, Mamelodi Sundowns, who allowed me to take up this latest challenge.”

The U23s begin their attempt to reach Tokyo 2020 with their U23 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Angola on March 22, before welcoming the Angolans to Mzansi for the second leg on March 26.
