Cape Town - The South Africa Football Association (SAFA) is close to revealing who the new Bafana Bafana head coach will be.
SAFA spokesperson Dominic Chimhavi confirmed that an announcement will be made sooner rather than later.
"We are almost there," Chimhavi told Sport24 exclusively when asked about the unveiling of the new coach.
This week will be two months since the association sacked Shakes Mashaba, after the 66-year-old was found guilty of insulting top football officials.
Earlier this month, SAFA announced that Bafana Bafana legends, Lucas Radebe and Benni McCarthy, were to have a hand in who the next coach would be.
1996 Africa Cup of Nations winning captain, Neil Tovey, along with Farouk Khan, Buti Mathathe, Anna Nyman and Natasha Tsichlas are all part of the selecting committee.
SAFA recently released a list of candidates in line for the position.
Roberto Mancini, Giovanni Trapattoni, Hassan Shehata, Hugo Broos and Bernd Schuster were some of the coaches SAFA was looking to employ as the national team's new mentor.
Bafana Bafana have a month to prepare for their first official match of 2017 as the 2019 AFCON qualifiers are set to begin at the end of March.
