Igesund: I'm Happy I Wasn't Fired
Out-going Bafana Bafana coach, Gordon Igesund, has until August 31 this year in his position, after SAFA decided not to renew his current contract when it expires.
The coach addressed a press conference this morning at the SAFA House where he said he was happy to have served in the position of the national team.
He said one thing that makes him happy the most is that he is one coach who was not fired by SAFA, but saw his contract through.
"Bafana Bafana is the highest coaching job in the country and I'm privileged to have coached the team, but what makes me very happy is the fact that I have not been fired, but has seen my contract through."
"That shows that I did a good job. I thank all the people I have worked with, and wish the team all the best going forward," the four-time PSL league-winning coach read from his written statement.
