SAFA Release Statement on Bafana Coach
With speculation that AmaZulu Head Coach Benni McCarthy is about to be appointed the new Bafana Bafana coach, SAFA released a statement today.
“We have noted that various publications over the last week have reported the appointment of new Bafana Bafana coach as having been concluded,” the statement reads.
“Firstly, it was Carlos Queiroz then Pitso Mosimane and most recently AmaZulu coach Benni McCarthy.”
“SAFA has always stated that the Technical Committee will submit their final recommendations to the SAFA NEC, the highest decision-making body, which will finally make the announcement once the process is concluded.”
“We note that the Benni McCarthy’s name comes at a time when AmaZulu are top of the log standings and it might appear that SAFA wants to derail the club’s good run.”
“We are happy with AmaZulu’s current good run but SAFA will announce the new incoming coach once the issue is dealt with by the NEC.”
