Mosimane is claiming R10million from Safa for an unfair dismissal after the country’s football governing body terminated his contract following a string of poor results that have negatively affected Bafana’s chances of qualifying for the 2014 World Cup.
But Safa, who was paying Mosimane a monthly salary of R800 000, is offering to pay half of what the former coach is demanding. The CCMA will now deliver its ruling on the matter after the disputing parties admitted they are failing to find common ground.
“We will wait for the CCMA to pass a ruling on the matter,” Safa’s head of legal department, Nathi Ngcobo, tells KickOff.com.
“They will make their decision known to both parties so we will have to wait for the process to run its full course. There is nothing more I can say on the matter.”
Mosimane tells KickOff.com that he is also waiting for the CCMA’s ruling.
“I do not know when the matter will be decided. I am also waiting. At the moment I am focusing all my spare time on teaching former players who plan to become coaches,” he adds.
Mosimane was given the boot by Safa in June after Bafana drew with minnows Ethiopia in Rustenburg three months ago. He has since being replaced by Gordon Igesund.
