Johannesburg - Bafana Bafana head coach Gordon Igesund is not guilty of trying to influence players to ask for excessive monetary bonuses during the African Nations Championship tournament in January, the SA Football Association (SAFA) said on Thursday.

The findings of a task team, headed by senior lawyer Norman Arendse, further cleared Igesund on allegations of his team selections being influenced by player agents, who were believed to have had a say in who he selected for the national team.

"The two allegations against the head coach had no substance whatsoever," Arendse read from a statement in Johannesburg on Thursday.

SAFA’s national executive committee (NEC) met earlier this week to deliberate on the task committee's findings and recommendations, as well as the disciplinary committee’s decision.

Igesund has denied the claims from the outset and last week said he felt confident of being cleared of any wrongdoing.

"On the basis of evidence, the task team found that there was no basis for the allegations," said Arendse.
