The South African Football Association say they will be meeting next week to discuss the appointment of a new Bafana Bafana coach.

Safa announced the sacking of Shakes Mashaba on December 22, after finding him guilty of gross misconduct, gross insubordination and a violation of Safa policy.

“As promised, the Association will convene a meeting of the SAFA Technical Committee next week to discuss the search for a new Head Coach,” said a Safa statement on Wednesday.

“The meeting will develop proposed principles of engagement for a new Head Coach, including defining an updated mandate and other requirements for presentation to the SAFA National Executive Committee.

“The President of the Association, Dr Danny Jordaan, visited Zurich, Switzerland to attend the inaugural Fifa Best awards and has since left for Gabon to fulfil a Caf assignment at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations Final Tournament.

“Whilst in Zurich, Dr Jordaan met with old friends and acquaintances, including Fifa President Gianni Infantino, Diego Maradonna, Frank Rijkaard, Lucas Radebe and others who made the 2010 FIFA World Cup such a memorable event. It bears noting that none of these meetings were to discuss the vacant Bafana Bafana coaching job!

“Dr Jordaan is currently on Caf duty in Gabon as a Member of the Afcon Organising Committee and will return to South Africa to address the coaching matter with the CEO and the Safa Technical Committee next week.”
