Safa is running out of time to appoint a new coach, after they sacked former Bafana Bafana coach, Shakes Mashaba, in December last year.

The South African Football Association’s technical director, Neil Tovey, has pleaded with the public to be patient as the Association continues its search for the new Bafana Bafana coach.

International friendly matches are coming thick and fast and Safa is under pressure to perform under some stressful situations.

This month, Bafana will play back-to-back friendly matches against Guinea-Bissau and Angola at home.

However, Safa’s technical director, Neil Tovey, believes time is still on their side.

Speculation is rife that Safa has appointed Dutch coach Ruud Krol as Bafana Bafana coach. However, Safa has steadfastly refused to comment on the matter.

Tovey says there’s still time to prepare a team for the Afcon qualifiers as well as the Fifa 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Tovey was speaking at the launch of the Annual Gauteng Future Champions tournament scheduled for next week. The Under 17 tournament features five local teams, as well as Atletico Madrid’s juniors, and a team from Nigeria.
