Johannesburg - SAFA’s Director of Coaching Education, Michael Nees, is to leave his post next month after the project that he was in charge of comes to an end.

Nees was originally brought into SAFA as their Technical Director although it was later decided that someone local needed to take that post and he was moved to the position that he currently occupies.

The former Rwanda coach was part of the team that oversaw the SAFA Level Three License that was launched in March 2011 along with the Level Three Pro License that was put on offer earlier this year.

The  German spoke to the Siya crew explaining that he had not been fired from his position, nor had he resigned, it was just that he had completed his job with the Association.

Nees told the crew, “I didn’t step down, I haven’t resigned, it was just a natural end to the project that I’m working on. My contract runs until the end of August but I have plenty of leave that most likely I will leave at the end of June.

“I’m going to be looking for a new challenge, that’s how it is in life, I’m open for anything, whether it’s in or outside of Africa, whatever it is I want to do coaching. I miss the thrill of matches and the competition. 

“It is the right time for me to take on a new challenge. I see my future back in coaching, I want to be back sitting on a bench, hopefully something interesting will come up.”

It is thought that SAFA instructor, Frans Mogashoa, will now take on the role that has been vacated by the German.
