Free State Stars coach Steve Khompela’s legal representative Tim Sukhazi on Tuesday told EWNSport the South African Football Association (Safa) approached the former Bafana skipper to join their management team as a part-time assistant coach to Pitso Mosimane until the end of the season.
Local newspapers reported that a deal has been done and will be made official on Thursday.
However, Sukhazi said nothing had yet been confirmed.
“We’ll meet this week and discuss the developments and whether or not this move could be possible from our side, but most importantly from Safa’s side."
Khompela was appointed Stars coach in August 2010.
Previously, he worked with Platinum Stars and Maritzburg United.
Bafana Bafana have come under scrutiny after failing to qualify for the African Cup of Nations in Gabon.
The national soccer side has not won a match since September 2011.
