Nematandani: 2018 Is Igesund's Target

When the South African Football Association (SAFA) appointed Gordon Igesund as Bafana Bafana’s head coach in 2012, his mandate was to reach the semi-finals of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations and qualify for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. 

However, despite the team having been eliminated at the quarter-final stage of the Afcon, SAFA want the coach to remain in charge of the Bafana bench for the another five years, until the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

 

SAFA president Kirsten Nematandani told the Siya crew that they have assessed the coach on his short spell at the helm to date and what he has achieved in that short period of time.

 

He said the four time PSL title winning coach has been with the team for only six months, and has already proven his worth.

 

“There are two sides to every story. We may not have reached the semi-finals but you have to give credit to the coach. He has only been with the team for six months before this tournament. The best thing we can do now is keep him until 2018, so that he takes us to the next World Cup. 

 

“In normal circumstances the coach needs four years to be with the team as that is the World Cup circles. I can tell you now that we will be sitting down with the coach to look at the way forward. We have to keep the coach until 2018," Nematandani concluded.
