Johannesburg - South African Football Association president Danny Jordaan has outlined the expectations that will fall on whoever is named the new Bafana Bafana coach.    

According to the website, SAFA are currently in search of a new national team tactician after deciding against renewing Gordon Igesund's contract following a largely failed two-year stint at the helm.

Jordaan has now revealed a series of performance clauses that are expected to be inserted into the contract of the new boss, with the ultimate goal pointing towards the 2018 World Cup.

"The first challenge is, of course, (to qualify for) the Africa Cup of Nations in Morocco 2015 and Libya 2017 and ultimately the 2018 World Cup in Russia," the SAFA chief said.

"We will look in every nook and cranny to find the best coach or a combination of coaches that can rebuild Bafana and strengthen the patriotism. And in doing that we cannot only look at our senior team, but our junior teams as well, where we expect to create a pool of players to draw from in building the next Bafana.

"If we just have the senior team as an island, I don't think we are going to achieve the success that we want. So, it's not just to appoint one person as a coach, but for all the structures of football.

"Whoever the coach will be, his challenge is to build a Bafana team on the back of the next generation. We will announce a technical director at the same time."
