Sowetan has learnt that Mashaba has been recommended by Safa's technical committee, which include Jomo Sono, Gavin Hunt, and Ted Dumitru. Safa technical committee convenor Fanyana Sebanyoni said the recommendation will be presented at the next meeting of the national executive committee.
"We want to see continuity in all the national teams," said Sibanyoni. "Pitso will oversee all the programmes of [all] our teams and must know what is happening at all times."
Mashaba is eager to assist. "Pitso has been with Bafana Bafana for four years and it's only fair that he be given the job, I will be available to assist him wherever my expertise are needed," he said.
