Can Ntseki aim for Pitso-size settlement?

SA National Teams

Molefi Ntseki is expected to walk away with less than what Pitso Mosimane received as settlement when he was sacked as national team coach.

'Jingles' was sacked after meeting with then-vice-president Mwelo Nonkonyane and CEO Robin Petersen in Rustenburg in 2012 after South Africa drew 1-1 with Ethiopia in the World Cup qualifiers.

South Africa's finest coach went on to claim R10-million as compensation from SAFA following the termination of his contract.

Mosimane's contract with SAFA was left with two years before reaching settlement through lawyer Rod Harper, and he was said to be earning between R800 000 to R1-million per month during his tenure.

Thato Matuka of Brand Arc Sports Management, who represented Ntseki when he signed his contract with SAFA, refused to disclosed the next step to take after his client was shown the door at Nasrec.

"Contractual issues always remain confidential," Matuka tells "We just got the news. We are still to decide with the coach on a way forward."

It is still not clear how much money Ntseki was earning as national team head coach.
