Should Igesund Stay Or Go?

Bafana Bafana have completed their tour of Australasia, and with that comes the issue of the future of head coach, Gordon Igesund.

The South African national team achieved a credible 1-1 draw in an international friendly against Australia on Monday, and went on to play to another draw (0-0) against New Zealand in Auckland on Friday morning. The next step now is the qualifiers of the 2015 Afcon in Morocco.

A lot has been said about whether Igesund will stay on as the national side head coach or continue with his duties, as a new generation of players emerges.

When he took charge of Bafana, his mandate was to reach the semifinal of the 2013 Afcon on home soil, qualify for the World Cup in Brazil and win the 2014 Chan tournament, also hosted by South Africa.

However, he failed to achieve all the mandates, and with his SAFA contract coming to an end soon, it is not known what the future holds for him.

A couple of names have been bandied about in recent months in terms of who will possibly take over, but nothing has been decided yet.

Former Bafana coach, Carlos Queiroz, who will be in charge of Iran at next month's World Cup showpiece in Brazil and Nigerian coach, Stephen Keshi, are amongst the names rife.

The SAFA National Executive Committee will convene a meeting on Saturday, where a decision on Igesund’s future will be made.

In the meantime, tell us what you think. Should Safa keep or let go of Igesund?
