Cape Town - SAFA president Danny Jordaan has vehemently refuted allegations that the issue of Bafana Bafana coach Ephraim ‘Shakes’ Mashaba will be discussed in the coming days.

Some unfounded reports allege SAFA would on Wednesday discuss the future of Mashaba, but Jordaan said SAFA had no business discussing its affairs in the media and more so ‘non-South African’ media.

“That statement alleging SAFA would discuss Mashaba on Wednesday is not only disturbing but for someone from some far-flung areas to peddle such falsehood is totally irresponsible.

“There is no iota of truth in that statement. It is malicious, reckless and defamatory. We don’t deal with our matters through the media and if we do so, we will call a press conference to grant our journalists that information,” said Jordaan.
