South Africans Celebrate Keshi as Bafana Bafana Coach

South Africans Celebrate Keshi as Bafana Bafana Coach
Stephen Keshi


Just as Nigerians are coming to terms with the 23 players chosen by Stephen Okechukwu Keshi to do battle at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, South Africans were also celebrating that they would soon have one of the best African coaches to tinker their national team – Bafana Bafana, after the World Cup.

The national executive committee (NEC) of South Africa informed last week that former coach Gordon Igesund’s contract won’t be renewed when it expires on August 31, 2014″, thereby paving way for a national coach who would breathe life into the Bafana Bafana.

The coach who has been penciled down to handle the South African team and turn them into a formidable squad in Africa and the world is current Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi.

Sports Vanguard gathered that Keshi is enjoying a pole position in a field that includes local boy and current South African U-20 and U-23 coach Shakes Mashaba.

‘’Keshi is heads and shoulders above any other coach for the Bafana Bafana job’’, an excited board member of South African Football Association, SAFA, said yesterday. SAFA would not however make the choice of Keshi public because they would not want to disrespect Keshi’s running contract with Nigeria until after the World Cup.
