Bafana coach tops agenda
DECIDING on the new Bafana Bafana coach will be the first order of business when the South African Football Association's national executive committee holds its two-day meeting in Johannesburg this weekend.
There are plans in place to get the choice of either Gordon Igesund or Steve Komphela decided by lunchtime on the first day and for a press announcement to be made soon after.
The entire process is taking place at Safa House next to Soccer City, which is sure to be besieged by media waiting to find out who the next coach will be.
That is if the committee agrees on the choice, but there is always the chance the decision might be delayed.
Both coaches will present their vision to the committee, which will then deliberate on the matter and decide.
Earlier this week Safa president Kirsten Nematandani lashed out at speculation that the choice had been made after previous presentations to the technical committee.
"It is very wrong to conclude that because the technical and development committee has said one, two or three, we should rubber-stamp that decision," he said.
