Mosimane to get R5m payout

Johannesburg - The South African Football Association (SAFA) will give former Bafana Bafana coach Pitso Mosimane a R5m golden handshake, according to a report in The New Age website.

SAFA officially terminated Mosimane’s four-year contract worth a reported R1m a month on Monday night.

Mosimane was left with two years on his contract worth a balance of about R24m, but after a marathon meeting at SAFA House to which he was not invited, the mother body’s management committee put the matter to rest and chief executive officer Robin Peterson was dispatched to the team’s camp in Rustenburg to inform Mosimane.

“He will not be paid the outstanding balance he would have received had he served the rest of his contract,” a source close to the developments revealed. “There is no obligation in terms of the contract signed with SAFA to do so and Mosimane would be wasting his time if he even tried to argue that one.

“He will not get more than five months of salary.”

Interim Bafana Bafana coach Steve Komphela has asked for patience and support for the team as they resume their 2014 FIFA Soccer World Cup qualifying campaign.

Komphela, the Free State Stars mentor and former Bafana captain, will guide South Africa in their next two matches.
