SPORT and Recreation Minister Fikile Mbalula will finally get to discuss his burning concerns on the state of amateur soccer administration with Safa tomorrow.

Mbalula's concerns include Bafana Bafana's failure to qualify for the 2012 Afcon finals and actions meted out against people who misled the team into believing they had qualified. Mbalula also wants a full report from Safa on the 2013 Afcon finals preparations and the 2010 World Cup legacy trust funding.

Mbalula has already shared his concerns with the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee board, who appointed a committee to investigate Safa. The committee is led by Sascoc board member Mubarak Mahomed, who is not wanted by Safa. Also expected to be raised by Mbalula at tomorrow's meeting will be utterances by Safa executive committee member Mzwandile Maforvane, who has questioned the Safa probe into misreading the Afcon rules.
