Bafana Bafana

Keshi reports blindside SAFA

Johannesburg - South African Football Association (SAFA) president Danny Jordaan says the country’s football governing body was taken aback when various publications across the continent reported SAFA had reached a two-year contract agreement with Stephen Keshi, to take over as the new national team head coach.

Bafana Bafana are still without a coach after Gordon Igesund was released from his duties earlier this month.

As earlier reported, Jordaan made it clear once again that SAFA will decide on who will take Bafana forward after the end of the Soccer World Cup next month.

“We haven’t made any announcement,” Jordaan told the Phalaphala FM radio station.

“No one is entitled to make a decision or an announcement on behalf of SAFA.

“We have said it over and over again that this matter will be finalised after the World Cup.

“We made this issue publicly.

“So if anyone made any statement, that person was just out of order.

“That person was just speaking on behalf of us but we were not aware of that,” he added.

Bafana will begin with their qualifiers, for a place in the next year’s African Cup of Nations (AFCON) to be staged in Morocco, this coming September.

They have been drawn against Nigeria and Sudan in the same pool.

The winner of the group will compete in the 2015 continental showpiece.
