SuperSport United assistant coach Thomas Madigage has been touted as the man soon to be appointed as an assistant coach with Bafana Bafana.
Madigage, who cut teeth in professional football as a 16-year-old at Jomo Cosmos is reported to be among names submitted to Safa by Bafana coach Pitso Mosimane as he continues searching for the right man to help him prepare the national team for the Africa Cup of Nations Finals in Equatorial Guinea and Gabon in 2012. According to a source close to SuperSport, the club are already resigned to losing Madigage and are preparing to bring in development coach Kwanele Kopo as the new assistant to Gavin Hunt. "Look Kwanele Kopo is already working with the senior team in anticipation of Thomas moving to join Bafana. We don't know how far the discussions are between SuperSport United and Safa about Tommy joining Bafana but I believe it could happen before the game against Sierra Leone," says the source. Speaking to KickOff.com, Madigage says he would not mind joining Bafana but he has not yet been approached by Safa. "I believe it is everyone's wish at a certain stage of his career to get an opportunity to coach at the highest level. I know there are a lot of people that have had success in their coaching career but never got an opportunity of being in this kind of set up. "I have never spoken to anyone regarding Bafana but should I get that opportunity it will be a great honour for me to serve my country as part of the squad's technical team," he says.
