Supporters Cry For Vera Pauw

Great news reached South African footballing circles on Friday: Banyana Banyana have climbed to their highest ever FIFA Women's ranking, settling in at 48th in the world. What does this mean for the coach?

This comes amid great confusion surrounding the future of coach Vera Pauw, who led the ladies to the Olympics. The news that Banyana have climbed in the rankings has been met with massive cries from the supporters for SAFA to ensure that she stays on.

"Another reason to keep Pauw at the helm of Banyana Banyana." – Matome_Kay

"If we fire this coach, it's gonna be a disaster, a huge one." – Senzoh90

"Mashaba put us to the lowest in the rankings, still keep his job, but Banyana goes to their highest ever, their coach is in doubt to keep her job. Thanks, SAFA, for a job well done in making sure South African teams are going nowhere." – Benjamin M

At the moment, it is all a bit in the air as Pauw's future has not been confirmed, but it seems unlikely, at this point, that she will carry on in her current post.

What do you make of the job that Vera has done with the team?
