Krol In The Running For Bafana Job?

Rumours coming from within SAFA  say that Ruud Krol has joined the list of candidates for the Bafana Bafana job.

Krol, the former Dutch legendary player who won 83 caps for his country, is a former Orlando Pirates coach, and was recently dismissed from his job at Esperance in Tunisia, where despite winning the league, he lost his job after a second loss in the CAF Champions league.

What counts in Krol’s favour is that he has experience in South Africa and Africa, has won silverware, and has international experience, after a brief stint in charge of Tunisia, while he was also Egypt's coach in the nineties.

The SAFA NEC meeting, where the Bafana coach is on the agenda, began on Saturday morning, and it is expected that a decision will be made, though the choice may not be announced yet.

Sources within the SAFA ranks have told the Siya crew that they have also had informal talks with Nigeria’s Stephen Keshi and Iran’s current coach Carlos Queiroz.

Queiroz remains a strong candidate, however it is believed that him signing depends on the two parties agreeing on his exhorbitant salary, and SAFA implementing his long-term strategic plan.

Current coach Gordon Igesund is also not completely out of the picture though, with some in SAFA still favouring him.
