When KickOff.com contacted PSL coaches around the country following the sacking of Pitso Mosimane, the majority of them felt that Igesund should be given the job.
And, after Safa narrowed down the search to just five local candidates, KickOff.com ran a poll on our website and mobile site asking which of Igesund, Gavin Hunt, Shakes Mashaba, Steve Komphela and Neil Tovey should be given a chance in the hotseat.
The results were about as one-sided as Leo Messi running at the Jomo Cosmos backline…
Of the just over 3 000 votes cast across the two platforms, Igesund earned 1920 of those, or 63.6 percent.
Interestingly, we the second-placed coach is separated by just six votes. Komphela and Mashaba have 328 votes – six less than Hunt.
Unsurprisingly, given his relatively short coaching career, Tovey finds himself last in terms of votes with just 3.5% of the votes.
