Bafana Bafana has a new coach. The South African Football Association (SAFA) National Executive Committee has unanimously appointed Molefi Ntseki to take over from Stuart Baxter who resigned in July.

The 50-year was assistant coach to Shakes Mashaba and Baxter and assumes his responsibilities with immediate effect.

Ntseki was appointed interim coach three weeks ago, but was confirmed as the new Senior Men’s National coach a short while ago by the NEC meeting which was attended by SAFA President, Danny Jordaan, among others.

Ntseki’s first official assignment is the friendly against Zambia at Lusaka’s Independence Heroes Stadium next Saturday.
