“I am having a meeting with the Safa CEO (Dennis Mumble) on Wednesday, but it is definitely one of those meetings we normally have after the games,” Igesund told Goal.
Igesund has been linked with the vacant position at SuperSport United, and he seems aware that the Tshwane side might be interested in his services as their coach for the upcoming season should Safa decides to terminate his contract.

“I still have a contract until after the 2015 Afcon, but there is no guarantee in football and I would like speculation over my future to be cleared as soon as possible,” added Igesund.
Meanwhile, the Safa president Kirsten Nemantandani has assured the nation in a statement released by Safa that Igesund’s job is safe, and that they are not going to discuss anything related to his future, because the 56-year-old still has a contract until 2015.
