Ntseki’s Bafana Fate Sealed?

Molefi Ntseki is not expected to be part of the top table at SAFA house when his employers face the media on Wednesday to discuss his future.

In the aftermath of the Sudan debacle, where Bafana Bafana needed only a point to qualify for next year’s Africa Cup of Nations – but suffered a shock 2-0 defeat, the association has been inundated with requests for a response.

The coach has already owned up for his part in the failure to book a ticket to the 24-team tournament, using strong words like “I failed as a coach”, but ultimately his fate will be decided by his employers.

Ntseki’s mandate after he took over from Stuart Baxter in August 2019 was to guide Bafana to the Afcon in Cameroon as well as the World Cup in Qatar next year.

The Siya crew had asked chief executive officer Tebogo Motlanthe for a comment on the devastating result in Sudan on Sunday, with the minnows and Ghana the two sides from Bafana’s group now going to the continental tournament.

But he responded by saying the association will hold a press briefing on Wednesday afternoon at SAFA house, which was later confirmed by an invite from the communications department

According to Siya sources, Ntseki is not expected to be present, which is strange considering he will be at the centre of the discussion and questions from journalist.

The Siya crew understands SAFA had not yet sent him packing by late Tuesday evening, though things can change in the hours leading up to the 12pm press conference.
