Pitso gets the boot

Pitso Mosimane has lost his job as Bafana Bafana head coach

Pitso Mosimane has lost his job as Bafana Bafana head coach after he was fired just after midnight. 

Mosimane immediately left the team hotel at Royal Marang in Phokeng, Rustenburg after his sacking was confirmed by Safa CEO Robin Peterson.   Peterson had earlier in the evening driven from Safa House in Johannesburg to Rustenburg to convey the message to Bafana's technical team, after the association’s executive met earlier in the day to deliberate on Bafana Bafana’s poor showing of late.   Bafana have failed to win a match in seven official games, including the 1-1 draw with Ethiopia on Sunday.   Steve Komphela, who was roped in as Mosimane’s assistant early in April, will take charge on an interim basis.   Komphela will be in charge of Bafana’s World Cup qualifier against Botswana on Saturday, June 9 in Gaborone and the friendly international against Gabon on June 15.   KickOff.com reported earlier on Monday that Safa were drafting an offer for Moroka Swallows coach Gordon Igesund, but he is currently in China with the Dube Birds.   Follow me on Twitter @TTM16

Finally justice was done. The voice of the masses was finally heard. Good luck to the next coach to take us to AFCON 2013 and hopefully help us qualify for Brazil 2014

Pitso was a product of Safa as an understudy for previous coaches, their product 'Pitso' failed, that means Safa executive has failed as well and they too must get the boot.

Good, now safa must focus within themself as their useless as pitso and I don't think we will move towards positive results as long as the mother body is managed by bafoons.like I said yesterday, it all start from the top,if the decision making from the top is poor,then poor decision making will filter through to the bottom,pitso's weakness was the administration coupled with his arrogance and stubborness.
