SAFA to part ways with Igesund


The SAFA powers-that-be met this afternoon and announced that they have agreed to part ways with Igesund after two years in charge.

That means the goalless draw against New Zealand in Auckland last Friday was the former Manning Rangers, Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns coach's last game in charge of the national team.

And despite all the rumours linking Carlos Queiroz with the job, SAFA president Danny Jordaan insists no decision has been made on a replacement yet.

"The process for finding a new coach will start immediately after this press conference," Jordaan said, before adding: "Wait until we make the announcement and then you can tell us if we made the right choice."

In a later press release, Jordaan is quoted as saying SAFA are "looking for a candidate who will take Bafana Bafana back to the glory days. He should be someone who takes us to the next level."
