Johannesburg - Bafana Bafana coach Gordon Igesund says he has no concerns over his position as head coach of the national team.

Igesund, whose contract with the SA Football Association (SAFA) expires in July, dismissed reports that Wednesday’s friendly international against Brazil at the FNB Stadium could be his last.

Meanwhile, Igesund was quick to shrug off questions about his alleged wrong-doings during the African Nations Championship (Chan) tournament. It was reported he apparently advised his players to ask for extra money ahead of the competition in January this year.
