The best man?

CARLOS Alberto Parreira is set to return to Bafana Bafana and we are expected to be happy about this.

Safa should not have allowed him to leave in the fist place. They should have come up with a compromise that would have enabled him to be with his ill wife while also keeping his job.

Parreira is experienced and has already won the World Cup. Players respect him and he is not one to be bullied by the football association.

Bafana showed a great deal of improvement under him. They won nine of their 21 matches, with six draws and six defeats. They played in a manner that raised the hopes of football-mad South Africans.

While he might not be everybody's best bet for the job, his unquestioned international record and the fact that he has done the Bafana job before makes him a better proposition than a completely new man.
