Cape Town - Former coach Shakes Mashaba has refused to comment after reports linked him to the Bafana Bafana coaching position.

According to the Kick-Off website, media reports claim that Mashaba is tipped to take over from Gordon Igesund at the beginning of August.

Mashaba told Kick-Off it will be unethical and unfair for him to comment about the role.

He said Bafana have a coach in Igesund and that people should respect that.

Mashaba coached Bafana on an interim basis for one game in 1992 and was also at the helm between 2002 and 2003.

Bafana have had a torrid time of late, losing 5-0 to Brazil last week and were also knocked out of the CHAN tournament earlier this year.

Mashaba, 63, is currently in charge of the national under-20 team.
