According to SoccerLaduma, SAFA will not be making a duel announcement on Saturday, but will instead delay naming the successful candidate for the position of technical director.

SAFA's communications manager, Dominic Chimhavi, confirmed Danny Jordaan's decision to delay the announcement. 

Chimhavi stated that SAFA want the public to first digest the news of the coach before the confirmation of the technical directorship is revealed.
