Barreto wants Bafana job

2012-06-15 10:17

Cape Town - Former Ghana national team coach Mariano Barreto has made a late application for the Bafana Bafana job, according to a report on KickOff.

The Portuguese-born coach has submitted his CV to SAFA to replace the sacked Pitso Mosimane, even though they started interviewing the five short-listed candidates in Johannesburg on Thursday.

The 55-year-old Barreto coached Ghana between 2003 and 2004, and his currently in charge at Saudi Arabian club Al-Qadisiyah.

SAFA's technical committee said it was "happy" with the first four interviews for the vacant Bafana Bafana coaching position conducted on Thursday.

Gordon Igesund, Gavin Hunt, Shakes Mashaba and Neil Tovey all presented with current interim coach, Steve Komphela's date set for next Monday.

    This guys doesnt exactly have much pedigree and his track record doesnt exactly impress. I doubt this dude is even capable of coaching at the PSL level. Sorry dude but we need better. Plus, i remember SAFA explicitly stating that one of the requirements for the New National coach is that he must be a local boy.

    Whats this palookas claim to fame?.. Knowing SAFA they will considering him!!! Theren is enough football knowledge and talent locally, it just needs to be managed properly. Some have achieved much more with less than half the resources available to SAFA and I am not talking finanaces...

    After the president appoint a woman to be Police Commissioner, SAFA has announced that they too will be looking into hiring a woman to coach Bafana Bafana.. "A woman will be able to deal with these drama queens", said SAFA spokesperson...... I've just handed in my CV, -crossing my fingers- lmfao

    It's time to try Igesund. It's simply not possible to ignore him. If he fails, ah well...who hasn't?
