SAFA Dismisses Stephen Keshi Appointment Rumours

The South African Football Association (SAFA) has received a lot of media inquiries following an article in a Nigerian website claiming that Stephen Keshi had signed a two-year contract to take over the Bafana Bafana job.  SAFA would like to reiterate its earlier position that the new Bafana Bafana coach will only be announced mid-July following due processes.  “That article, which is attributed to a source, is devoid of any truth as SAFA will only make the decision on the appointment of the new coach mid-July.  Keshi’s name is among the various names that have been thrown around by the media.  SAFA has not yet arrived at any decision regarding the  appointment of the new Senior Men’s National Coach.  That decision will be pronounced once the World Cup is over,” said SAFA President, Dr Danny Jordaan.
