Queiroz Back For Bafana?

Former Bafana Bafana coach Carlos Queiroz may be being lined-up to return to the hot seat when Gordon Igesund’s contract expires in June.

Queiroz is currently the coach of the Iranian national team and will lead them in Brazil at the 2014 World Cup Finals.

The Siya-crew can reveal that high-ranking SAFA officials have been in communication with Queiroz, who after coaching Bafana between 2000 and 2002 went on to be Alex Ferguson’s assistant at Manchester United, before replacing Vicente del Bosque as Real Madrid boss.

But he only lasted ten months at the club, despite a good start to the season, they lost their final five matches to finish in fourth.Queiroz returned to his role as Ferguson’s assistant at United before he took over as Portugal’s coach until the 2010 World Cup, where Portugal were knocked out by eventual winners Spain.

He has been with Iran since 2011, qualifying them for 2014 World Cup and 2015 Asian Cup.

News of Queiroz being linked with Bafana has also been reported in Iranian media for the past few weeks, including in the Tehrain Times, who reported that Queiroz is on Bafana’s radar.

Speculation is still rife as to whether Igesund will see out his contract, and there are rumours that Shakes Mashaba may take over as caretaker-coach until Queiroz's appointment.

The Siya-crew will keep you informed.
