Bafana Bafana won what was a very crucial World Cup Qualifier against The Lions of Teranga from Senegal. The game wasn’t short of drama though and the highlight of it all was our coach, Shakes Mashaba's outburst in front of TV cameras that resulted in him being suspended. Supporters Club’s Beaver Nazo spoke to Mama Joy Chauke, a prominent Bafana Bafana supporter about the situation.
“Firstly, for today’s game we won’t suffer because Owen has been working with Bra Shakes all this time, I hope SAFA doesn’t come to the decision to fire Shakes, yes he did put the mother body into disrepute, but I wish they just discipline him and let him continue and finish what he started" she said.
“We all want to go to Russia, like any other country. I mean yes he failed to take us to the AFCON, but they allowed him to start the qualifiers and we are in the front foot now. My plea to SAFA is to give him a chance to finish what he started. I wouldn’t really like to see him go now.’ Having said all that, if SAFA decides to fire the coach, then as supporters we will rally behind the new coach, that’s our job as supporters, to support whoever is in charge, she said”
Do you think SAFA should fire Shakes?
