Cape Town - Shakes Mashaba's legal representative, Claudio
Bollo, wants South Africa Football Association (SAFA) to reinstate the sacked
Mashaba was fired after a lengthy court case for insulting
top football officials in November last year.
According to Soccer Laduma, Bollo feels that Mashaba’s
dismissal was “unfair” and is taking the case to the CCMA in hope that SAFA
will give the 66-year-old his post back.
“We certainly take the view that it is an unfair dismissal
and will be challenging it in the CCMA,” Bollo said.
“We also contend that SAFA should do the responsible thing,
namely to hold off on appointing anyone new until the case is over and we know
for sure whether Shakes will be reinstated or not.”
The next Bafana Bafana coach is still to be announced and
Roger de Sa along with Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic have been touted to replace
With January in full swing, SAFA will need to make the
announcement sooner rather than later as South Africa play their first competitive
match in March.
