Johannesburg - Former South Africa star Matthew Booth believes Gordon Igesund should have been given the national coaching reins ages ago.

Igesund, the PSL Coach of the Year, is a frontrunner to succeed Bafana Bafana boss Pitso Mosimane, who was axed on Monday night.

The Moroka Swallows mentor faces competition from caretaker tactician Steve Komphela, SuperSport United's Gavin Hunt, national U-23 manager Shakes Mashaba and Thanda Royal Zulu coach Neil Tovey.

"If I were a coach, I wouldn't get excited, but looking at the shortlisted five, they are good coaches I believe," Booth told Football411.com.

"Statistically, Shakes has a better record as coach of the national team, the Under-23 and Bafana. Gavin Hunt's coaching abilities and record also speak volumes.

"The current caretaker coach (Komphela) is also not a bad option, but for me Gordon Igesund should have been given this job a long time ago."
