Safa has appointed Shakes Mashaba’s replacement, however, his name is still unknown. The new Bafana Bafana coach is not available for a press conference this week, as he is said to be out of the country, hence the postponement. Iran coach Carlos Quiroz has been linked to the job in what will be his second tenure in the Bafana hot seat.

“The naming of new @BafanaBafana coach has been postponed to next week, as we need the coach available at the Press Conference!” the tweet read.

Former Orlando Pirates coach Ruud Krol and Morocco coach Herve Renard are on the list of possible coaches for Bafana Bafana.
