Cape Town - The South Africa Football Association president, Danny Jordaan, has revealed that the search for a new Bafana Bafana coach has been put on hold.

At the end of January, the senior national team will have been without a head coach for a month after sacking Shakes Mashaba.

The 66-year-old was suspended in November last year for insulting top football officials after South Africa's Soccer World Cup qualifier victory over Senegal. 

SAFA ended the 66-year-olds fourth stint as Bafana Bafana mentor after a court case which dragged on up until the end of December.

Mashaba has since launched a case with the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) against SAFA in hope of getting his job back.

According to Soccer Laduma, Jordaan revealed that the reason SAFA have not started the process of finding a new coach is because of Mashaba's case.

“No, no, no… we have not even started with the process (of looking for the new coach) yet," said Jordaan.

"We are still dealing with the issue of the current coach (Shakes Mashaba)."
