Mashaba filed a case with the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) against the country's football association, claiming unfair dismissal.

The case resumed on Tuesday (February 7) and according to KickOff, both parties failed to reach an agreement. 

"We didn't reach a solution and now the case is going for arbitration," Mashaba's legal representative, Claudio Bollo, revealed.

Mashaba was sacked from his post as Bafana head coach in December 2016.

The 66-year-old has since looked for a way to be reinstated as the senior national team mentor.

Mashaba previously coached Under-23 national side as well as the Under-17 side.

The verdict of the case is predicted to be revealed on February 14.
