The South African Football Association's search for a technical director is over after the national governing body offered Serame "Rhee" Letsoaka the job.

Letsoaka, the humble national under-20 coach and former Free State Stars midfielder, will take up his new position in September after the Fifa World Youth Championship in Egypt.

His appointment came after a comprehensive assessment programme conducted by Fifa and CAF technical experts at the High Performance Centre in Pretoria.

Letsoaka was shortlisted by Safa's technical committee with Farouk Khan, Thabo Dladla, Desmond Lewis, Conti Kubheka and Steve Phiri.

Safa spokesperson Morio Sanyane confirmed Letsoaka's appointment.

"Serame is a very good coach and the Fifa-CAF technical team is convinced he will deliver," said Sanyane yesterday.

"We are also convinced he is the suitable person for the job and we congratulate him."

The Amajita coach could not be reached for comment as he was at the Fifa development summit in Botswana, yesterday.

The gathering started yesterday and ends tomorrow and is being attended by technical directors and general secretaries of all Fifa affiliates.

But Sanyane had said he was happy about his new responsibility and that he cannot wait to start in September.
