thumbnail Hello,

Stephen Keshi, Shakes Mashaba, Ruud Krol and others have all been tipped to take over from Gordon Igesund, but Mark Fish says bringing Carlos Queiroz back would be a wise move

Former Orlando Pirates and South Africa defender Mark Fish believes that Carlos Queiroz would be the right man for the Bafana Bafana job.

Fish said that the former Portugal boss' tactical and technical ability, and his understanding of South African football makes him the favourite for the vacant Bafana post.

"Either one (of them) I think would be a step forward, but If I really had to put a mark behind it, I would say Carlos Queiroz could be the man, because tactically and technically he's a very astute coach," Fish told reporters. 

Queiroz, formerly assistant Machester United coach, and Real Madrid head coach, is amongst the stronger candidates that could be unveiled by Safa next month.

And Fish, who repeatedly made it clear that he wants Queiroz back, added that the nation will have to support anyone who comes in, even if it's not the current Iran coach. 

"He's someone that I think will get the respect of the players and hopefully the football fans; buying into what he would like to do with our national team.

"So, whoever comes I know that we will support them, but I would like to see Carlos Queiroz here," added Fish.
