Carlos Queiroz appears to be the man the SA Football Association (Safa) have resolved to appoint as the next Bafana Bafana coach‚ following Saturday’s technical committee report-back to the national executive committee (NEC) at Safa House.

Carlos Queiroz appears to be the man the SA Football Association (Safa) have resolved to appoint as the next Bafana Bafana coach‚ following Saturday’s technical committee report-back to the national executive committee (NEC) at Safa House.

Asked if that meant that made Queiroz a strong candidate‚ the technical committee member‚ who did not want to be named‚ said: “It does.”Former Portugal‚ Iran and Real Madrid manager Queiroz‚ in his previous stint under the employ of Safa‚ put together a technical plan that many future plans at the association were largely based on.

Sources have told TimesLIVE that Safa president Danny Jordaan is an admirer of Queiroz for this reason‚ as well as his noted technical ability as a coach‚ which earned him a job and respect at‚ among other places‚ Manchester United as Alex Ferguson’s assistant in 2002 and 2003.

The technical committee’s apparent favouring of Queiroz‚ and Jordaan’s apparent agreement‚ would appear to indicate that‚ provided the Is can be dotted and Ts crossed‚ he would be Safa’s chosen man to replace Molefi Ntseki‚ who the association said they had released from his contract on March 31.

The technical committee member said: “The committee want to look at soccer in the long term‚ and obviously short and medium term comes into play.”Asked if that would influence if the candidate has a background in setting up development structures‚ they said: “Yes‚ because what is the use when we make it to the World Cup‚ and then never again?

“ ... As a technical committee it is our responsibility to take football further in the country. And have now decided that we are going to take accountability for football in the country‚ which means we are going to look at the future of it. And we’re not looking for short-term solutions‚ which would leave us back at square one.”

Queiroz coached Portugal to a mediocre second-round exit at the 2010 World Cup in SA‚ but impressed by steering Iran to back-to-back World Cup finals in 2014 and 2018. He is unemployed having left as coach for almost two years of Colombia in December after a slow start in their 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign.

The other four candidates on the Safa shortlist are believed to be Belgian ex-Cameroon coach Hugo Broos‚ Saudi Arabia coach Herve Renard‚ Al Ahly coach Pitso Mosimane and AmaZulu coach Benni McCarthy. Broos is the only coach other than Queiroz currently unemployed.

Chimhavi said he could not expand on the travel issues related to Covid-19 that Safa’s leading coaching candidate had‚ nor whether such issues confirm that the person is a foreigner. Read more: Times LIVE »
