Igesund: I'm overwhelmed
Johannesburg - The South African Football Association (SAFA) and the new Bafana Bafana head coach, Gordon Igesund will be meeting shortly to finalise the composition of his technical team.
Reacting to various names that have been thrown around in the media that include that of former Bafana Bafana captain Lucas Radebe, Doctor Khumalo and Fani Madida, Igesund said he would first present his recommendations to SAFA’s Technical Committee that will deliberate the issue and come up with the names of the support staff.
“I am still drawing up a list of my recommended people whom I would like to surround myself with, I will present it to the Technical Committee and once that is done, I will sit down with the SAFA management to take the process forward,” said the new Bafana Bafana coach.
“The main priority for the nation is doing well for the AFCON 2013 and qualifying for the FIFA World Cup in 2014. I am overwhelmed by the support I have received from the nation and I will try my level best to bring back glory days to Bafana Bafana,” he added.
Igesund was appointed Bafana Bafana head coach on Saturday, 30 June 2012. He takes over from Pitso Mosimane.
