According to Soccer Laduma, Mashaba believes that Keshi will try anything to get one over Bafana in order to prove SAFA wrong.

“One other thing the coach as well will want to fight as well because he believes he should have been the coach of the South African team,” smiled a jubilant Mashaba.

“His going to try to use all psychological tactics to make sure his players compete above his instructions.”

Keshi and Mashaba were reportedly the final two candidates before Danny Jordaan and the SAFA executive committee opted to hand Shakes the contract to be coach.

The 64-year-old revealed that despite Nigeria’s loss to Congo Brazzaville he knows that the Super Eagles will be much tougher than “sheep to the slaughter” and urged his Bafana side to keep their guard up.
