Danny Jordaan, Safa President
After Stuart Baxter left his position as South African national team head coach, many questions remain on the future of the team

The SABC's Velile Mnyandu caught up with Safa President Dr Danny Jordaan to discuss the vacant head coach position in the South African men's team.

First, Jordaan speaks about how far they are in the process of selecting a new coach and the President underlines he is waiting for the task team "to do the work".

Jordaan also explains how the coach they want could potentially require a particular notice period from his current team.

Then Mnyandu asked Jordaan for his opinion on the local vs foreign coach debate, and the South African isn't one of those who believes you must have a local mentor.

Jordaan has noted one could have foreign assistants and a South African coach (like the Senegal team) so he is not ruling out a local coach coming in next.
