Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane is in favour of Molefi Ntseki’s appointment as a permanent coach of Bafana Bafana.

Ntseki was appointed on Saturday after he was a caretaker coach following Stuart Baxter’s resignation.

Ntseki was reportedly in a shortlist alongside Benni McCarthy, Gavin Hunt and Steve Komphela amongst other local coaches.

Ntseki was assistant coach to Baxter at the recent Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

His coaching experience is with the national Under-17 team, where he steered them to runners-up at the 2015 African U17 Championships in Niger.

He also helped the team to qualify for the FIFA U17 World cup in Chile that year. Mosimane says Ntseki has what it takes to succeed. – Report by Vincent Sitsula
